No, we’re not talking about the Burt Reynolds movie here. It’s the Cannonball Endurance Run for Pre 1930 Motorcycles. Yes, you read right, motorcycles made before 1930! The Cannonball is a coast to coast endurance ride that is going on from September 7 – 23, 2012. Just imagine taking your vintage motorcycle and riding it, not just from the trailer to the floor at a show but riding it across the country! Some of the participants even dress in period clothing. If you go to the web site there’s a list of all the participating motorcycles. Then note how many of the companies are still in business making motorcycles!
Take a look at the Cannonball web site for pictures, the route and the history. The site even has a chart listing the motorcycles and riders along with their progress.
No, this isn’t one of our rides, it’s just something that I thought would be really cool to share.
