If you like vintage motorcycles, this cross-country race offers the opportunity to see 70, pre-1930 motorcycles of all makes in their natural habitat, the open road. And there won’t be a hubless wheel among them.
Not exactly the clandestine, WFO, “Cannon Ball” cross county races of the 70s and 80s, this “race” is organized into 16 stages of varying length ranging from 93 to 320 miles per day.
Here’s the list of cities on the route. Starting in Newburgh, NY yesterday, and ending in San Francisco on 23 September. A mid-race Rest Day is scheduled for Friday, 24 September, in Sturgis, North Dakota. The route includes less than 100 miles of Interstate travel.
