The Cannonball Endurance Run

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.
