Tallahassee H.O.G ABC’s of Florida Rules 2008
In order to fully appreciate what we have in Florida, the Tallahassee Harley Owners Group is presenting the ABCs of Florida. Our state’s allure, beauty, culture, and diversity can only be truly experienced as we travel the state on our Harley-Davidson motorcycles. From March 1, 2008 through November 15, 2008, we will have the opportunity to ride more, see more, and learn more about Florida, and get something tangible in return. Prizes will be awarded at our 2008 December Meeting/Christmas Party.
