Reading Harley Davidson recently loaned the fantastic Jo green (Thames Valley Chapter Member and Road Captain), a Vivid Black Sport Glide to embark on an Iron Hog!
In 2011 The Iron Hog Riders Challenge was born. A long ride across the UK visiting as many Harley-Davidson dealerships as possible, all under a clearly defined but simple set of rules, so that other riders can ride this endurance for themselves and enter their name in the Iron Hog Roll of Honour.
Jo’s experience started in 2018 when she initially took on an Iron Hog solo. Riding especially long-distance riding has always been a passion for Jo, so she decided to challenge herself even further and joint up with 3 other ladies to take part in an Iron Hog visiting 4 dealerships in 48 hours, while incorporating an Iron Butt 1,000 miles in 24 hours.
After a super challenge, lots of fun and a whole lot of riding the Sport Glide, they all managed to successfully ride 1,132 miles in 24 hours, while completing the Iron Hog in a total of 28 hour exceeding the Iron Butt!
We have loved following Jo’s journey and we cannot wait to see the next challenge she will take on!
