“The real cycle you’re working on is a cycle called yourself” – Robert M. Pirsig
Members of the H.O.G. just get it! Year after year, they’ve come to Bay Cliff to provide an opportunity for the children to sit on top of the bikes, blast the horns, and take pictures with their members while wearing custom bandanas. Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, wrote “in a car you’re always in a compartment, and because you’re used to it you don’t realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You’re a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame. On a cycle the frame is gone. You’re completely in contact with it all. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
Truly, the H.O.G. are in the scene with Bay Cliff! They’re not passive observers of our camp – they’re part of it, and their positive presence – for both the campers as well as the staff – is truly overwhelming! Besides the raffle, they provide custom bandanas to the children, as well as Harley-Davidson t-shirts. The H.O.G. even have a special, one of a kind t-shirt every year specifically for Bay Cliff which the campers themselves help design (be sure to look for the 2019 t-shirt this summer at the BC Office, as well as the at the raffle, where H.O.G. shirts from years past will also be available).
In their decades-long history of lending a helping hand, the H.O.G. have raised over 1.3 million dollars for the campers of Bay Cliff! We are extremely grateful for their support and friendship! Truly, everything the H.O.G. has done for Bay Cliff is a remarkable gift!
