New Years Day / Polar Bear Ride

Each year, along with hundreds of motorcycle clubs and groups from all over the country, the Golden Isles Harley Owners Group participates in the annual ritual of the Polar Bear Ride. Our ride, along with hundreds of others is typically to Benton Lees Steakhouse near Uvalda, Georgia. Our route takes us through some gently rolling hills with sweeping curves through some of southeast Georgia's scenic country side.

The Patch is available for purchase for all participants of the Polar Bear Ride and yearly rockers are provided to each rider/participant each year.

Amber Whited Memorial Ride

In memory of Golden Isles Harley-Davidson employee, Amber Whited, who was abducted and murdered July 2013, the Dealership along with the Golden Isles Harley Owners Group assisted in establishing a trust fund for Ambers two children. The trust fund is supported by an annual benefit ride and other donations. All proceeds from the ride go into the trust fund which is only accessible when Amber's children turn 18-years  of age. Over 200 bikers locally were present to support the inaugural ride, as well as other HOG Chapters around the country putting on their own rides for the cause.

Holiday Hope Toy Ride

Each year the Golden Isles Harley Owners Group along with other Chapters and Clubs around the world hosts a toy ride to benefit local children that are less fortunate. We have done toy rides in conjunction with the Marin Corp Auxiliary "Toys for Tots" and have from time to time done rides to benefit other needy local agencies.
