Tacoma HOG Safety


Doug GlazeSafety Officer

Tacoma HOG is committed to having fun while riding safely, and safety is an important part of our chapter rides. Safe riding is something that you should practice every time you ride... whether you ride alone, with friends, or in a group of fellow chapter members.

Our Safety Officer conducts Group Riding Classes several times a year to help you understand the dynamics of riding in a group. These are also skills you can use when riding alone or with a small group of friends.

Destination Harley also sponsors Individual Riding Classes that are available to help you learn to ride safely. These classes are also excellent resources to help you hone your riding skills.

Tacoma HOG's Library also has some excellent information on Safety that is available for all riders.
