About Us

New Smyrna Beach HOG Chapter #1923 is an independent chapter of the Harley Owners Group, sponsored by Bruce Rossmeyer’s New Smyrna Harley-Davidson. 

We are a family-oriented, non-political organization whose goal is to “Ride and Have Fun.” It’s a slogan we really take to heart, and members are welcome to participate in a variety of weekly rides to various destinations – click HERE for our rides and event calendar.

A shared love of riding our Harley-Davidson motorcycles brings with it a sense of camaraderie that can’t be beat! Come join us on a ride and find out what makes New Smyrna Beach HOG such a fun group!


Secretary: Gary Maresco

Gary started riding motorcycles at the ripe old age of 18 on his first bike, a 1976 Suzuki TM400 enduro. And so it began! Although there have been many different genres of bikes: ATV’s, dirt, sport, and baggers, he bought his first Harley in 2009, a 2005 Ultra Classic. He currently rides a 2018 Road Glide Special. While he has only been a member of New Smyrna Beach HOG since 2017, he has enjoyed it so much that he threw his hat in the ring to be chapter Secretary for 2020. Other than riding as much as he can with this outstanding chapter, he enjoys golfing, fishing, and spending quality time with his beautiful bride, Karen. Gary has been in the manufacturing industry for over 35 years and looks forward to  the day he can retire to do more of the things he enjoys!

Mike has been fortunate enough to be involved with Harley Davidson motorcycles since 1984.  At first it was strictly from a business standpoint, but once the time was right, he started riding.  He has been a National HOG Member since 2002.  As a Charter Member of New Smyrna HOG, he’s proud to be an active member since the chapter was first formed.  As Head Road Captain for the past few years, he’ll be the first to tell you that he is fortunate to work with a great group of Road Captains that make sure members have plenty of opportunities to ride.   The Road Captain Group takes great pride that we have more rides in a week than some chapters do in a month.

Bruce started riding in 1965 around Niagara Falls, N.Y.  His tastes in motorcycles have matured from a two-stroke 175 to his 18th bike, and his fourth Ultra, a 2017.  He has been a HOG member since 1994 and NSB HOG safety officer since 2010.  Bruce and his wife, Dee have ridden together in every state in the contiguous U.S.  As an avid motorcyclist, and a retired VA physician,  he strives to help every rider enjoy their journey and arrive safely at their destination. Ride Safe, Ride Hard, Ride Long!!

Becky is a charter member of the New Smyrna Beach chapter and has been a national HOG member since February, 2008. She can mark having her motorcycle endorsement off her bucket list but only rides as a passenger on her husband David’s bike; a 2020 Ultra Limited. Becky has been the Editor of the chapter newsletter, The Hog Chatter, since August 2010. Besides spending time on the motorcycle, she enjoys making miniatures, scrapbooking, and painting barn quilts, along with other crafts. She and David have put over 97,000 miles on their bikes since 2006. On occasion, three of their five grandkids can be seen accompanying them on HOG chapter rides.
