Welcome to the Road Captains page. My name is Bill Brusenhan "Brush" and I am the 2013 Head Road Captain. A lot can happen on the road to anywhere, there are things to cherish, things to avoid, and things to learn from. Being a Hot Springs HOG member means making the most of every ride - and every ride should be a safe ride. At Hot Springs HOG we want to “Ride and have Fun”. But, in order to have fun riding in a group, we have to be safe and that means having good, well-qualified Road Captains. Riding is at the core of our Chapter and the first step to our rides is planning and taking the lead. Our Road Captains are the ones who plan and lead our rides providing a “Safe and Fun” ride for our Chapter. Below are our Road Captains and links to information about our rides.
What is a Road Captain and how does he or she fit into the intricate hierarchy of the HOG chapter? First of all, let's look at the main reason the HOG exist. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE RIDE. That's it! Plain and simple. Everything we do, every event or activity is centered on riding our Harley Davidson Motorcycles. Whether it be riding to a chapter meeting or spending several days on the road going to a National HOG Rally.
A certain amount of planning and pre-ride effort goes into a chapter ride and it is the duty of the Road Captain to assist the ride leader before and during the ride. If you are new to group riding, or experience a road side problem during a ride, a Road Captain will be there to assist you. The Road Captain is also an experienced rider who know how to ride safely in a wide variety of conditions and is there to share that knowledge with anyone who wants it.
The Hot Springs HOG Road Captains are people who have displayed those attributes and volunteered to help out on many rides we have each year. Many of the rides are led by Road Captains but every member of the chapter has the opportunity to lead a ride if they so choose. Just let us know where you want to go and we'll help set it up.
