A-Z Cities Completed today

Headed out early this morning to complete my ABCs of Touring HOG points for cities/towns. It was a crisp morning and beautiful day to ride the 526 miles round trip to collect my letter "Z". Gathered a few more county points, as well. Rode through the scenic Flint Hills and saw a few other bikes, but not as many as I would have thought given how nice it is today...ride safe!

Sounds like a good day. I'd like to hear more about your ABC's experience. I read about it on the website earlier this week and am interested.

You can download the information and forms from the HOG site if you are a member. It is a lot of fun planning routes to get the most points from a day's ride...I've gotten as many as 12 points in a day. As of now I have a total of 75 points as follows: 26 cities (A-Z), 19 counties (A-Z), 10 Harley dealerships, 1 Harley assembly plant, 5 National Parks, 5 National Forests and 9 states. I started the process late when I went to Utah in July to visit the 5 National Parks there. Since then I am on a mission to at least get 80+ points. I have to travel further now to complete the counties, heading to NM and SD for them. I can pick up several more states pretty easily though. One of the best ways to get points is by attending HOG rallies, which unfortunately don't fit my schedule that often. I'm enjoying accomplishing the task though.

A couple of unusual pics, one with the city mayor looking out at me. He came out to visit as he was preparing for a town meeting and said that his wife was doing a similar scavenger hunt, so he knew what I was up to!

The ABC's are one of many reasons for me to ride and, yes, this is my first year accumulating ABC points. I wasn't even aware of them until one of my riding buddies suggested it...I think I'm about 30 points ahead of him now!
