The Distinguished Rider Program (DRP) has been developed to serve two important functions at the chapter level. The first of these is to serve as an incentive program to encourage CVMA members to participate in their chapter rides and events. Secondly, the DRP serves an important role in rewarding and recognizing those CVMA riders and passengers who steadfastly participate in their chapter rides and events. Riding and camaraderie are founding principles of successful and enjoyable CVMA chapters. The DRP is a useful tool to help strengthen and grow our Chapters.
The Distinguished Rider patch is in the shape of a hexagon and is 2.5 inches wide and 3.25 inches tall. It has a grey background and black border. The center of the patch contains a vertical two-lane road. Beneath the CVMA skull in the center of the patch is a motorcycle wheel and tire surrounded by a gold wreath. The words “DISTINGUISHED RIDER” are contained at the top of the patch. The patch is awarded for the completion of 2500 miles ridden.
The Distinguished Rider chevrons have a grey background and black border. The center of the chevron contains a vertical two-lane road that is in line with the base patch. As subsequent chevrons are earned and affixed under the patch, the road appears longer to signify the lengthening journey. The first chevron is awarded at 5,000 miles, the next at 10,000 miles, and so on at 5,000 mile increments.
