There are just a handful of motorcycle brands out there, which have the sort of global fan following Harley-Davidson does, and when it comes leisure biking they are the true kings. Organized between June 23rd and 24th June, the annual Million Mile Monday world tour this year attracted bikers from across India to ride together and be part of this passionate H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group) parade and contributing miles in order to set a record of covering 13 million kilometers within just 48 hours.

From the country’s scenic west coast to the subtropical desert of Rajasthan, from the Jaipur highway to the Yamuna Expressway, H.O.G.s’ from across India united to ride together on this occasion, and covered a total of 500,000 kilometers.

Two H.O.G’s in particular, Saurin Shah and Ricken Desai achieved something extraordinary this year. Shan from Nine Bridges Harley-Davidson, Ahmedabad rode an amazing 1,500 kms in 48 hours and stamped his authority over the “mile muncher” honor.

Ricken Desai from Banjara Harley-Davidson, Hyderabad rode an astounding 6,000 kms cumulatively with his fellow H.O.G’s and they plan to continue their journey and pile on more kilometers over the course of the world tour this year.

Launched in 2008, the Million Mile Monday has been an annual event with Harley-Davidson that began on the last Monday of June each year. In 2012, it was expanded into a two-day ‘World Ride’ starting on Sunday and ending on Monday (last week of June) to give more riders worldwide an opportunity to participate.

One of the unique features of the Million Mile Monday is Harley-Davidson’s online mileage accumulator at the Harley website, where a rolling odometer records the collective distance traveled by all participants in the World Ride. At the completion of the ride, a commemorative certificate of participation is shared with each rider.

The 2014 world ride can only be bigger and better in terms of both participation and enthusiasm, exuded by the Indian H.O.G’s.
