SHOVEL Owners GROUP
You have reached the (new) website of the SoG, the Shovel Owners Group.
WTF is a Shovel?
Well, DUH … for some people it's a tool to work the garden.
But on this site a Shovel(head) is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It has an air-cooled, 45 degree, V‑twin engine with 1,200 cc (73 inch²) displacement that was manufactured from 1966 to 1984. After 1978 H‑D also constructed some 1,340 cc (82 inch²) "Milwaukee Vibrators".
Now, don't be mistaken by the fact that these bikes were made about 41 years ago! You might get the impression that they would be worn-out old nags, but most of them still run very well indeed, thank you.
We prefer the term vintage … just like good wine, Harleys get better with age, as do their riders! They just need some TLC and
Like a lady; if you take care of her, she'll take care of you!
Yep, H-Ds are of the female gender! Most of them, that is.
Okay, this SoG thing … is it a club?
It's a GROUP and by the logic of things, if YOU own a shovel (the H-D variety!), you're automagically a member of this group. There's absolutely no sense in protesting … it's just one of those things in life you'll have to accept! The only way out is by selling the bitch or giving her away to someone who does appreciate her values!
