|FEATURED RIDERS: Don and Heidi Hrupcin
Racking up points to protect their ride.
Don and Heidi Hrupcin of Greendale, WI use their H-D™ Visa® card constantly with a very specific goal in mind: to save while protecting their Harley-Davidson® motorcycle from the harsh Wisconsin winters.
"We let the points build up all year, then apply the rewards to pay off winter storage and maintenance. When we pick up our bike in spring, it's ready to go, and we're ready to start building up points for the next year." Smart move!

Lore and Russ Ratike: Racking Up Rewards In Any Weather

Explains Lori, "What’s wonderful is that all the months we can’t ride, we can still use our card to pay bills and buy things we need. Then when it comes time to start putting on the miles, we have Harley Chrome® Cash ready! So far, we’ve gotten loud pipes, new tires, chrome accessories and more. This is a fantastic card!"
Patty Martin: Pretty In Pink and Proud of It
Patty Martin wanted to add a little feminine touch to her ride, so she decided to paint her bike pink with a hint of purple. Says Patty, “That paint gave me the most unique bike in my town. I even won a trophy with it!”
Now Patty uses the Harley Chrome® Cash from her H-D™ Visa card to buy pink and purple
H-D® MotorClothes® apparel to match her bike. "Harley-Davidson has a really nice line of feminine clothing for us biker chicks who love the open road as much as all those tough biker dudes." Looking good, Patty!

H-D™ Visa card. Turns out, I had enough points for 13 Harley Chrome® Cash certificates! I was back in business with the accessories catalog in hand." Way to go, Bruce.
