Chapter Member Spotlight - Donny & Lisa Ducote
When Donny turned 50 years old he decided to get another Harley (he had previously owned a 79 AMF HD Sportster) which was no longer with him when we started dating. I took lessons and acquired his hand me down Honda Shadow which I rode for a little over a year. Donny bought me a 2001 Fat Boy as a surprise and I fell in love with that bike and Harley Davidson motorcycles. We both joined the HOG chapter in 2003 and we have enjoyed the campouts as well as the BON TEMPS rides many wonderful meals but most of all the camaraderie!!!
Perhaps our greatest joys with being a HOG member were the state rallies that we would attend. Donny and I would always volunteer at least one day, which allowed us to meet many HOG members from different chapters. We have been to state HOG rallies in TX, AR, MS, OK, NM, CO, PA, TN,NC, SC, GA, and several of those states we have been to their rally more than once (we went to the TN rally 4 times through the years). We also attended a National HOG Rally in Oklahoma City.
We sold both of our Road Kings in 2007 before going to South Korea and ordered two new Street Glides before returning back to the states the end of 2008. Donny & I rode the bikes to Paducah, KY to break them in. I served as secretary for the HOG Chapter in 2009, 2010, and 2011. It was a very rewarding job in the HOG chapter. Donny told me not to write down how many bikes he has had through the years (too many to keep up with) but it has all been a wonderful ride. I am currently riding my 5th Harley, a 2016 Road King; she is Silver with Sparkles!! LOL
We cannot say enough about all the friendships we have made that will last a lifetime via a Harley Davidson motorcycle. If I had to explain The Harley Life “you wouldn’t understand”, it’s about experiencing it yourself. From waterfalls in Glazier National Park to Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada………… Donny and I have had so many great adventures and look forward to many more now that we are living the RETIRED Life.
Riding & Having Fun,
Lisa & Donny Ducote
