Our main purpose is to bring Harley riders together, under a banner of association and belonging, in order to create an environment of friendship, mutual respect, and safe riding behaviour.
Durban Free Chapter is a not-for-profit association
Principles and Values
Durban Free Chapter is an association of Harley enthusiasts who have a shared love and passion for Harley Davidson Motorcycles and who have come together to enjoy these motorcycles and have fun. It is in no way linked to or affiliated with any Harley Davidson dealership. At the core of our values we believe it is most important to have:
Respect and adhere to the Charter of Free Chapters
Respect and adhere to the Durban Free Chapter Constitution
Respect for free spirit
Friendliness, openness and honesty
No hidden agendas
Freedom to have their say
Be free to determine our own direction
Safety & behavioural rules of HOG (hence HOG international membership requirement)
Access to Rider training and promote safe riding behaviour
Our Durban Free Chapter logo and badge was carefully designed to represent who we are as a group and our commitment to the Free Chapter movement. At the heart of our Chapter and our logo is:
- No discrimination
- And of course bikes!
The eagle wing is a symbol of freedom and a connection to our Harley brand. The Zulu shield in the logo not only represents strength and community, but also connects us to the land of the Zulus in which we all live. Inside the shield you will see the road on which our bikes have travelled, and the sunset represents the future towards which we will ride together.
The two points at the top and the bottom of the shield design show a common purpose and direction with equality and non-discrimination against gender, age or race.
