Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) | 2nd Annual Million Mile Monday

HOG Riding Marathon

Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) members around the world logged 4,373,937 miles during the club’s second annual Million Mile Monday riding marathon.

The members set the bar pretty high after last year’s three million miles, and they are ecstatic to have exceeded that by more than 45 percent this year, said Benny Suggs, General Manager of the Harley Owners Group. But more important than the number of miles ridden is that so many of our members joined together on this special day to share the experience of motorcycling.

To put the cumulative mileage in perspective, 4,373,937 miles is the equivalent of almost 77,000,000 American football fields (goal line to goal line) or more than 70,000,000 100-meter soccer fields.

If you could ride from the earth to the moon, you¹d have to make more than nine round trips to log 4,373,937 miles on your odometer.

The world’s three longest rivers ­ the Nile, the Amazon, and the Yangtze share a collective length of 12,124 miles. You¹d have to travel the length of each river more than 360 times before traveling 4,373,937 miles.

Riding 4,373,937 miles on an average motorcycle compared to driving astandard passenger car saves nearly 109,375 gallons of gas (or 5,609 barrels of crude oil); at $3 a gallon, that¹s a $328,125 savings in fuel.

Million Mile Monday is an annual event on the last Monday of June and is open to all H.O.G. members– riders or passengers. The feat was recorded by logging into the club¹s exclusive members-only website (members.hog.com), where participants registered their miles ridden on that day.
