Group Opens Up Million Mile Monday

Milwaukee (May 20, 2011) – On Monday, June 27, the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) invites riders of all motorcycles to join its members around the world as they band together in their quest to cumulatively log millions of riding miles by the day’s end.

Launched in 2008, Million Mile Monday is an annual event on the last Monday of June that brings together H.O.G. members from around the world in a day of riding for no specific purpose other than to
celebrate the joy and freedom of the open road on a motorcycle. In 2010, H.O.G. members collectively logged more that 4,000,000 miles, and this year the club hopes to raise the total even higher.

“Inviting riders of other motorcycle brands to join our members on Million Mile Monday is all about sharing the passion for riding and the Harley-Davidson brand that makes the Harley Owners Group such a unique riding club,” said H.O.G. Manager Joe Dowd. “Plus it’s just a great reason to get out on the road and ride, regardless of what motorcycle you own.”

Whether it’s a ride across town or cross-country, or simply around the block to work, every mile counts and can be recorded by logging into H.O.G.’s online mileage accumulator at h-d.com/mmm, where a rolling odometer will record every mile logged by participants in Million Mile Monday. At the completion of the ride, a commemorative certificate of participation can be printed to display each rider’s mileage total for the day.

Los Angeles, California – When one of the oldest motorcycle brands in the world returned to California, it didn’t take long for one of California’s most famous automotive enthusiasts to take notice. Worldfamous comedian and host of NBC’s Tonight Show, Jay Leno is equally well-known in automotive circles as an authority on classic vehicles and owner of one of the greatest collections of classic cars and motorcycles in the world.

 

Leno recently took delivery on a 2011 Royal Enfield motorcycle, and today the famed comedian featured the modern Royal Enfield on Jay Leno’s Garage – a website and online video series dedicated to Jay’s impressive collection and automotive interests.The new Royal Enfield was suggested for Leno’s collection by Mike Frankovich, owner of NoHo Scooters, a popular scooter shop and Royal Enfield dealership in North Hollywood.

When Royal Enfield re-entered the California market, Frankovich’s NoHo Scooters was among the first dealerships in the state to carry the historic brand’s new models. “My dad and Leno were friends for many years and I got to know many of the mechanics at his garage,” explains Frankovich, “I was telling a mechanic about the new Royal Enfields and wondered aloud if Jay might be interested in one.” Before long, Frankovich and Royal Enfield USA Vice President Ron Greene found themselves on site at Leno’s Big Dog Garage as several Royal Enfield Bullets were delivered from NoHo Scooters for their debut on Jay Leno’s Garage.

“It was a genuine pleasure working with Mr. Leno and his team,” Greene said after as filming wrapped up for the video feature. Greene also added, “Jay is a famous collector with famously discerning taste in classic automobiles. For that reason, I know he will enjoy his Royal Enfield and I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome as a Royal Enfield owner.”

A complete collection of photos and videos related to the Royal Enfield’s arrival at the Big Dog Garage, including Jay Leno’s test ride and review, debut today on the Jay Leno’s Garage website. Full episode and image gallery are available online at www.jaylenosgarage.com.
