The magazine, which is published five times per year, is distributed to more than 650,000 Harley-Davidson owners in America.
The magazine contains stories and information exclusive to that market, including lifestyle and riding features, member stories as well as tips on riding and Harley-Davidson product information.
Gavin Miller, Dialogue’s Managing Director said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed by Harley-Davidson to produce the iconic US HOG Magazine and we look forward to working with the US team to help build on their already established relationship with the H.O.G. community.
“Content really does help brands engage and build communities across multi-channels and from a personal perspective there is nothing better than the experience of the Harley-Davidson brand on the road, through a magazine, online or at an event.”

Hundreds of schoolchildren are set to receive a free copy of a regional daily every week as part of a reading project.
The project sees children across the country complete fun and educational activities to develop a wide range of skills as they explore the people, places and events.
The scheme is being run in conjunction with The News Foundation, which aims to provide opportunities for young people of all abilities to access news of all forms in a relevant way.
Evening Mail editor James Higgins said: “We’re thrilled to be involved in the The Reading Passport 2016 programme.
“It’s really important that young people understand what’s happening in their local communities and I hope that by providing them with a print edition of the Evening Mail once a week for the duration of this project, we will ignite a passion in them for news and current affairs.”
A group of photojournalism students have set up their own ‘live news’ blog in a bid to gain real life experience of press photography.
Each week the students are given four hours to find and produce news, sport and feature stories for the blog, while they are put in charge of picture editing, sub editing and social media on a weekly rotational basis.
Students have so far covered stories such as St David’s Day, the proposed closure of a community centre, International Wine Day and Six Nations rugby union matches.
Senior lecturer Becky Matthews said: “Only the best work produced weekly is uploaded to the blog and applicable to be handed in as coursework.
“The live news days are helping to give students an understanding of the press industry. The rapid deadlines are improving time management, while the ability to recognise and research story opportunities and repetitive practice is improving their portfolios.”
