The Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) reports that on Monday, June 29, 2009, H.O.G. members around the world will band together in a singular challenge, to log a cumulative five million riding miles by the day’s end.
Following the phenomenal success of last year’s inaugural Million Mile Monday, which tripled the original goal of one million miles ridden by H.O.G. members to 3,000,960 miles, the goal for this year’s ride on June 29 has been stretched to five million miles.
“The response we got from our members to Million Mile Monday blew us away, so we asked members what should be our goal this year? The resounding answer was five million,” said Benny Suggs, General Manager of the Harley Owner’s Group. “Many of our members will be returning home from the CLUB H.O.G. OKC rally in Oklahoma City on that Monday, so we expect a big turnout this year, but more important than the number of miles ridden is for all our members to simply get out and ride somewhere on Monday, June 29. Whether it’s 20 miles, 100 miles, 500 miles, or more, the important thing is to get on your bike and go.”
H.O.G.’s annual Million Mile Monday ride occurs on the last Monday of June and is open to all H.O.G. members– riders or passengers. The feat will be recorded by logging into the club’s exclusive members-only website (members.hog.com), where participants can register their miles ridden on that day. All miles must be entered by 12 p.m. (Noon) Central on June 30, 2009.
