In January 2021, the directors of the H.O.G. Chapters of the Arabian Gulf region came together to back an initiative led by Abu Dhabi Chapter, to form a cooperative H.O.G. Council including the directors of all H.O.G. Chapters in the GCC region.
On January 16, 2021, the Council's founders convened and elected a President and a Vice-President, and approved a draft version of the Council Charter.
The story of the GCC chapters goes back a long time, a story of brotherhood, camaraderie and joint collaboration. Riders from each of these chapters have visited and ridden through these countries for as long back as HOG has been in existence. We wanted to take that spirit of collaboration and frame it into a Council that sets out to take these memories and launch them into the future.
