The Edinburgh-based Chapter was formed in 1993 and was the first in Scotland and they are affiliated to the Edinburgh Harley-Davidson Dealership in Edinburgh.

One of only two Chapters in Scotland they currently have over 350 members based all over the UK, Europe and America. Throughout the summer months they have monthly ride-outs (ie Eyemouth) and support worthy causes such as the RNLI.

Throughout the year they raise funds for various charities including, Help for Heroes, Scottish War Blinded, Venchie Centre Craigmillar, Royal Blind School, MacMillan Cancer, Rachael House and many more.

This year their chosen "main" charity is the Royal Blind School in Edinburgh.

The Chapter is also currently planning for their rally "Thunder in the Glens" which takes place in Aviemore from August 27-30, the largest Harley Davidson event in the UK. There will be over 3,000 bikes attending.

The Dunedin Chapter's director, George 'Mad Dog' McGuire said the members thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Eyemouth.

He added: "We enjoyed our trip very much in spite of the weather which affected our numbers turning out on the day. We have committed to returning next year when hopefully the weather will be kinder to us.

"Our member who fell off his bike is doing well! He has broken his shoulder and will be out of action for a few months. I think his pride hurts more than his shoulder!"
