Harley Owners Group Offers Prizes for Hoka Hey Challenge

Milwaukee (May 6, 2011) – The Harley-Davidson Motor Company is pleased to announce that it will provide more than $50,000 in contingency prizes to the highest finishing members of the Harley Owners Group who complete the 2011 Hoka Hey Challenge.

 

To recognize the H.O.G. members partaking in this event as among the most adventurous motorcyclists in the world, the highest finishing eligible H.O.G. member who completes the event, as determined by the organizers, will be awarded a 2012 Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations motorcycle of his or her choice. In addition, the 2nd through 5th highest finishing eligible H.O.G. members will each be awarded a portion of a total of $19,000 in additional cash prizes.

 

The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge will present one of the world’s greatest long-distance endurance motorcycle riding events beginning August 5, 2011. The event, the second annual in a series, begins in Phoenix, Arizona, and travels through all forty-eight contiguous U.S. states and several Canadian provinces to Nova Scotia.  The route will travel more than 10,000 miles, and is open to all riders of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

 

“The Hoka Hey Challenge is a perfect match for the superior touring experience and capabilities of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the long-distance adventuring aspirations of many of our H.O.G. members,” said Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson Director of Customer Experience. “The theme of the Hoka Hey Challenge is ‘It’s a good day to ride!’ and that is always the case on a Harley.”

 

To be eligible for any contingency award, the rider must be a H.O.G. member in good standing at the time the ride starts and must display a H.O.G. emblem on his or her riding gear and in a prominent location on the motorcycle (preferably on the windshield or Tour Pak) throughout the event. The H.O.G. member must be the designated rider (passengers not eligible) and meet all eligibility requirements for the event. H.O.G. emblems and decals will be provided free of charge to all members who participate in the event at the start of the challenge.

 

As an event and contingency sponsor only, Harley-Davidson Motor Company is not responsible for organizing or conducting the event, and will defer all decisions regarding final finishing order to the event organizers.

New H-D Transparent Paint Guard Kit Protects Your Saddlebag Lids

The new Transparent Paint Guard Kit for Saddlebag Lids (P/N 11100028, $79.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories is designed to protect saddlebag lids from boot scuffs, road debris, and scratching keys and jacket zippers. The four pieces of crystal-clear material protect the paint on the lids without changing the look of the bike. Minor scuffs and scratches are disguised due to the optical properties of the material. The application process is similar to that of tinted window film, and the material can be removed and replaced when it is no longer cosmetically appealing. Fits 1993-later Touring models with Color-Matched Hard Saddlebags. Not for use on leather-covered bags.

New H-D Cut Back Gloss Magnum 5 Custom Wheel…Impressive

The bold design of the new Cut Back Gloss Black Magnum 5 Custom Wheel ($449.95) from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories is inspired by the steel of a large-frame revolver.

cross-section spokes to the rim and the hub. The machined-aluminum Cut Back surfaces stand in brilliant contrast to the rich gloss black finish. All Genuine Motor Accessory wheels have been certified by Harley- Davidson to perform to our tough vehicle standards for quality and durability. Available in 19- and 21-inch front and 17-inch rear sizes to fit many 2006-later Dyna® and 2000-later Softail®  models.
