Monthly Riding Challenge on the HD App

Does anyone on here do this? I do it just because I like collecting the little digital coins, but once I get the coin I stop keeping track of stuff for the month. I'm pretty sure some of the cats on there have to be OTR truckers or something. The dude with the most miles this moth has 26964 miles this moth...seriously? How does some one ride almost 27K miles in a month?

I have been participating this year as well just for the heck of it, even months i do what i consider a lot of riding and end up with 3-4K miles. Do the math these guys are traveling nearly 1k a day. That’s an iron but every day. Not possible in my opinion.

That’s pretty much my take on it as well. The numbers have got to be skewed some how.

I was an OTR driver. They're not hitting 1000 miles a day either. Something is fishy there. 3000 to 3500 a week was a good week. A legal week.

Well heck, there goes that theory. I wounded how the hell those cats are logging that meany miles then. The other thing is why in the hell would someone cheat on this. It’s not like your getting a paycheck if you have the most miles in a month. LOL.

hmmm, never knew about this. So this is on the HD App for your phone? I bought my bike a year ago september 1st, I've got about 19,600 miles on it right now. Maybe I'll go DL the app and look into it. That said I think those numbers some of those guys are posting is bullshit, there's no way they're riding that much.

My brother is currently a long haul trucker, and we frequently discuss his mileage and location. And yes even playing with the drive clock and using recap time, he is topping out right where you say the max would be for a legal week.


Hell even if someone was trying to jive the system with multiple sets of paper logs, I don't see anyone hitting over 4k consistently from the shit (traffic/delays/weather/idiots) he has described having to go through.

At 1,000 a day that's only 12 hour's a day at 85 mph. Doing that every day, they must have a great life.
