Mileage Marker Program

Well fellow HOG members, it’s getting toward the end of the 2010 and that means our new Mileage Marker Program is coming due.  For those of you who entered the program, it will soon be time to get your ride over the Bakersfield Harley Davidson to have your odometer read and tally the miles you rode this year.

There are some things you need to know concerning the Mileage Marker Program.  First of all, it will be the responsibility of each participant to ensure the mileage on his/her motorcycle is read before the ending date.  Secondly, your HOG officers decided recently to give at least one ticket to everyone who entered the Mileage Marker Program regardless of the number of miles ridden.  This way, if someone doesn’t get their mileage read, at least they will receive one ticket for getting involved in the program.

Bakersfield HOG will be awarding a $100 gift certificate to a male rider a female rider

whose entry was chosen.  Here’s how it’s going to work.

We’ll subtract your starting mileage from your ending mileage.   As each form comes in, I’ll compile the mileage and award one number for each 1,000 miles the rider traveled during 2010.  For example, if the rider rode 15,000 miles, he/she will receive a block of 15 numbers.  When I have all of the entries in and numbers assigned, I’ll use a random number generator to determine the winner of the $100 gift certificate.  The numbers for men and women will be kept separate so there will be two awards.

With this in mind, if you’ve entered the Mileage Marker Program, bring your motorcycle to the November general meeting to have your mileage read.  If you can’t make it to the meeting, bring your motorcycle to Bakersfield Harley Davidson before 4:00pm on November 21st.  This coincidentally, is the last day you can purchase your Bakersfield HOG Christmas Party tickets.  Tickets for this annual event are still $20 each.

Have you mileage read and come to the Christmas Party where we’ll announce the winners.

In January, we’ll start again with a Mileage Marker Program for 2011.  Hope to see you soon at Bakersfield Harley Davidson, a general meeting or the Christmas Party.

As ever, ride safe…
