    We had high hopes that soon we would announce the opening of registration for MMM 2021. We fully expected to go forward with the March Moto Madness Mother Rally but after consulting with those in the industry and getting advice from many riders that we consider family, we have come to the difficult decision to not go forward with the MMM Mother Rally for 2021.

    BUT PLEASE KEEP READING

    Since many have already made plans to ride March 25-28th, we would like to offer an alternative that would get riders out for an adventure and a Return to the roots of MMM.

    MMM started in 2006 with 5 buddies camping in the Appalachian mountains, out for a first ride of the season. We packed our tents (on our bikes), cooking gear, adventurous spirits and took whatever the weather threw at us (believe me, we’ve seen it all). This is the true spirit of what has become an annual rite of passage for many since that first gathering.

    Here’s the plan, in this season of zoom meetings and social distancing let’s all get out there March 25-28th to ride, camp and share our experience with others through social media. No rules, no admission, just a great ride creating memories and new friends in the true spirit of MMM.

    Identify a destination, invite your riding buddies and let’s have some real ADVENTURE!

    To add a little incentive and encourage everyone to share their adventure we’d like to give out door prizes and swag from all the great vendors and sponsors that have also been affected by the ongoing pandemic.

    We’ll need a way to include everyone in the drawings for giveaways so go to the events tab on the GS Giants website and register. Don’t worry, it’s free. You’ll be assigned a participant number and we’ll use that to draw for all the cool stuff the sponsors are donating to support the riders and community. In addition we’ll have some other competitions for you to participate in that may increase your chances to win big. While you’re there you can order a limited edition, super cool, “Return to our Roots” t-shirt.

    We’ll keep in touch through the MMM and GS Giants Facebook page and here on ADVrider.

    You don’t need to be a member of the GS Giants to register but while you’re there you can join for $10 and receive a great sticker and have access to a Giant network of like minded riders and an invaluable resource of knowledge, help and camaraderie.

    Our Moto has always been “by the rider for the rider”, so let’s get out there and Return to our Roots of MMM and make life an adventure

    Looks like it's going to be a wet weekend.

    As far as weather goes, it was not bad at MarchMotoMadness.
    I can an remember plenty of rain and some bitter cold nights at past rally’s...but it’s always great!
