Motorcycle Cannonball Revised Improved Web Site

Call us crazy, but about 75 committed (perhaps we should be “committed”) vintage motorcycle riders have signed up for the Motorcycle Cannonball Run. This event is open to all pre-1916 motorcycles, and will pull out of Kitty Hawk, NC on Friday, September 10, 2010 with the goal or arriving in Santa Monica, CA on Sunday, Sept 26.

Over the last few weeks the Motorcycle Cannonball Run web site has been transformed into more of an on-line magazine with regular daily updates and photos from Course Master John Classen. Apparently he and his wife are driving the proposed route in their car making sure it is the best choice for us old timers. Remember, some of these bikes are belt drive, single speed motorbikes with no front brakes and weak rear ones.

Here is the scheduled route and dates. But please be aware they might change slightly, so check their web site before making final plans.
