The guided ride typically covers 400 miles over 2 riding days. Plan to arrive Friday evening, ride Saturday, ride Sunday and depart Monday morning.
A slew of contests are provided (lowest purchase price, acceleration test, etc.) to determine who has brought the finest jalopy motorcycle.
We seek out challenging winding roads, scenic vistas and classic biker hangouts. The RR team is committed to delivering the best ride routes you have ever seen.
Things happen out on the road. We will work to get you and your bike back to home base, however, this is not guaranteed and should not be relied upon. It is highly recommended that you test ride your bike hundreds of miles before arrival at the RR. Shake those gremlins out ahead of time!
The winner gets bragging rights and a trophy!
