Received My HOG 175,000-mile Patch

(May 12, 2016) Since July 2000, I've ridden more than 175,000 documented miles.* Today, I received in the mail from the Harley Owners Group (HOG) my 175,000 mile patch (shown in the photo at left).

If I complete my ride to the West Coast next month and am able to continue riding at my usual pace through the end of 2017, I expect to earn my 200,000-mile patch by the end of 2017.

It's been a great joy and privilege to ride so many miles to many wonderful and interesting places.

Peace. -The Long Rider

*Before 2000, I had ridden approximately 45,000 undocumented miles: 2,000 on a 1967 Harley-Davidson Sprint; 35,000 on a 1981 (or was it a 1982?) Honda CM450-C; and another 8,000 miles on a 1987 Honda Magna.
