Harley-Davidson Wants You to Ride Five Million MilesFri, 12 Jun 2009
Harley-Davidson is rallying its troops for their second annual H.O.G. Million Mile Monday. The Million Mile Monday is a day when all Harley-Davidson H.O.G. riders go out and ride, recording how far they rode that day on Harley’s H.O.G. membership site.
The goal last year was to accumulate a million miles from all their rider’s rides put together. They smashed this goal with 3 million miles! That’s a lot of road traveled!
The goal this year has been raised to 5 million miles to push Harley members to get out there and ride even more. Million Mile Monday is on Monday June 29th this year so plan your rides now!
H.O.G. is the “Harley Owners Group” organized by Harley-Davidson themselves. They organize rides and events, I guess like a social club. There is a membership cost but I don’t think you need to sign-up for the full membership to record your miles for the Million Mile Monday.
I think you can just create a profile.
If you are interested in becoming a H.O.G. member, head over to the H.O.G. site to learn more. Check out the rest of the post for HD’s promo video for the Million Mile Monday.

In 2008, H.O.G. members worldwide rode more than 3 million miles during the first H.O.G. Million Mile Monday. This year’s event is on Monday, June 29th. The goal? 5,000,000 miles. There is nothing to sign-up for, just ride – ride to work, at lunch, around the block, or even take the whole day off to ride.
After riding, participants can login to http://members.hog.com to record their miles and watch the virtual odometer spin as we reach our goal. Learn more or become a member at http://members.hog.com.
