National H.O.G. Contest
Ride 365 Mileage Program
H.O.G. has several contests running at the same time, including LifeTime Recognition, Annual Recognition, Chapter Challenge, and the Journey Challenge. Go to the National HOG website for more information on each one of these programs. You can click the link below, you will need to sign in, (if you aren’t already), or create an account if you don’t have one yet.
Please note: your ending mileage from the previous year does NOT automatically enter you into the contest for the next year. For example, if you brought your ending mileage for 2018 to the dealership in December, to get signed up for 2019 you must bring in your starting mileage sometime after January 1, 2019.
If you are not already signed up for Ride 365, simply bring in a picture of your VIN and your mileage to the dealership for your starting mileage reading. You must bring in a starting mileage reading each year on January 1, or anytime after that day. On or before December 31, you will just need to go back to the dealership with your VIN and Mileage to turn in your ending mileage for the year.
A starting mileage and an ending mileage reading that is put in by the dealership is needed for your miles count for the annual contest. You can bring in your mileage anytime throughout the year to get an updated reading on your mileage for the year, but that is optional. You can check to see that your mileage has been recorded correctly by going on to https://members.hog.com/HOG/HDMN_Ride365 and signing into your account or create one if you haven’t done so already. Your most recent mileage reading should show up under the lifetime mileage. You will not see any updates in the annual mileage contest until you have had a minimum of two mileage readings at the dealership for 2019.
Annual Mileage Contest
The Chapter’s annual mileage contest coincides with the H.O.G. Ride 365 program and runs from January 1 to December 31. If you are signed up for Ride 365, you are automatically entered into the chapter contest. If you are not already signed up for Ride 365, simply bring in a picture of your VIN and your mileage to the dealership for your starting mileage reading. On or before December 31, you will just need to go back to the dealership with your VIN and Mileage to turn in your ending mileage for the year. On January 1, we will download the mileage readings from HOG.com for the results. The top 3 total mileage totals for both men and women will be recognized. Participation rewards will also be given with one entry per 1,000 miles ridden.
Year-Round Riding Club
Patches and a plaque are in the works for the first group of members that qualified as of December 31, 2018. In order to qualify, the member will have to ride their bike to the dealership once every month for a year. There will be a notebook at the front desk where one of the employees will record your visit for that month. This will be based on 12 consecutive months of participation, starting from the first month you participate. So, you can start this at any month of the year and once you complete 12 months, you will be eligible for the patch and get your name on the plaque.
As a thank you to our members for participating in our chapter events, we will be awarding points for each event. All non-riding events will be worth one point and all rides will be worth two points. All points earned from one chapter meeting until the next meeting will be tallied up. Each point is worth one entry into the Activities Participation drawing. Two raffle tickets will be drawn at each Chapter Meeting.
Chapter Meeting Participation
Upon arrival at the chapter meeting, each member will receive a raffle ticket. Two Chapter Meeting Participation raffle tickets will be drawn at each meeting.
RIDE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!
