This route starts in North Carolina and travels into Virginia and back. This ride is truly fantastic, ranging from deep in the forest to riding through beautiful valleys surrounded by mountains.

format

Each route is fully mapped by us. Navigation is by roll chart (roll charts are provided – you have to provide your own roll chart holder). No GPS. Camping at pre-selected and pre-reserved campgrounds (different campground each night). Your registration fee covers the support vehicles, camping, food and beverages, and maps. You will be responsible for paying for your own gas, parts, and any additional food/beverages.

There is a maximum of 20 paid riders, who are divided into smaller groups for riding. This helps keep the group moving while providing group support when needed. However, expect to be in the saddle for 8 to 12 hours a day on either ride.

The riders’ meeting occurs the night before we leave. Expect to be in Chattanooga, TN (Coastal Route) or Blowing Rock, NC (Mountain Route) the day before the event starts.

rules

  • All bikes must be manufactured before 1981. There is no limit on how much the bike costs.
  • Your bike must be street legal, registered, and insured. You must have a valid motorcycle license.
  • Suspension can only be upgraded with components available before 1980 or new replacement parts with the same travel specs. So, upgraded rear shocks are ok, front end swaps manufactured before 1980 are ok. Monoshock conversions are not ok.
  • Everything you need for the week (excluding cooking equipment and food) must be carried on your bike: clothes, camping gear, tools, spare parts etc….
