In 1987, with some experience in our bones, we decided to leave the Belgium Harley Davidson club ’74 and to stand on our own legs. On February 19th, 1987, with the official publication in the Belgian Statute Book the Harley-Davidson-club Free Wheeling Kempen ( identification number 2618/87 ) was born. Due to new Belgian legislation, new and actual statutes were published in the Belgian Statute Book on December 29th, 2005.
On November 15th, 1991, our club met with several other Harley-Davidson-clubs at the annual Presidents Meeting in Feldkirch (Austria). Together with a descendant from The Family ( Bill Davidson in person ), we stood at the cradle of the Federation of Harley-Davidson-clubs in Europe (F.H.D.C.E.). The international acknowledgement was definitive!
Since the beginning of this year our club counts 73 members : 43 of them own a Harley Davidson, are active members and have the right to vote. 30 of them are associated members.
Our club is a democratic association. The club is conducted according the Belgian laws. The committee exists of five chosen members, with responsibilities that we will explain later on. Yearly, two or three members of the committee are eligible.
