Is there a town or county near you that begins with the letter "X"? If so, you already have a leg up in this annual battle of alphabet chasers, where points for the 24th letter are hard to come by.
Actually, "battle" is much too strong a word for this popular, friendly competition; providing motivation to ride to new or out-of-the-way places is what this program is really all about.
Here's how it works: After you enroll in the program, keep a camera and a copy of a current issue of Hog Tales® or Enthusiast® magazine with your bike. Then, you can earn points by submitting photographs of you and your Harley® (or your H.O.G.® Fly & Ride rental bike) in front of official signs while holding a current copy of one of the magazines. The idea is to visit cities and counties beginning with as many different letters of the alphabet - and as many states and provinces - as possible. There are other ways to earn points, too, such as by attending State, National, or International Rallies, visiting national parks or forests, Harley-Davidson facilities, etc.
At the end of the year, we reward the highest point totals with great prizes and 15 minutes of fame (top winners are listed in Hog Tales magazine and featured here on this Web site). You can also earn awards just for reaching certain point levels. But when all is said and done, it's not a matter of whether you win or lose (besides, how can you lose?), it's how you play the game: by touring the country on a Harley-Davidson ® motorcycle.
