    March 26-29, 2020 will be the 15th edition of March Moto Madness, held at 801 Steer Creek Rd, Tellico Plains, TN.

    Sanctioned by the GS Giants, MMM is held in the southern Appalachian Mountains, in the shadow of the Cherokee National forest and in the heart of the some of the best riding found anywhere on the planet, MMM has grown from those initial 5 friends to encompass events in worldwide locations such as Australia, Belgium, California, England, Greece, Ireland, Japan, Spain, South Korea. The largest, and original, being the Mother rally held in Tellico Plains.

    March Moto Madness, the Mother rally, 2019 hosted 750+ riders from across the United States astride a wide variety of brands, styles and sizes of motorcycles. Large touring bikes, ADV bikes, dual sports, KLR’s, cruisers and even a few sport bikes and Groms thrown in for good measure. The riding opportunities are plentiful and the area attracts a variety of riders with adventurous attitudes and a spirit of openness to whatever the journey, and the weather, can throw at them.

    2020 will be the 15th rendition of MMM and will offer a new Cherokee Challenge route, the addition of a Skills course (slalom, full lock turns, figure 8’s) that will challenge all comers but not include extreme conditions like the Trials Coarse that throws every obstacle available at the participants. (Mud, creeks, rocks, logs, whatever the twisted minds of the coarse builders can come up with). The Hill Climb challenges participants to become the King of the Mountain.

    Last, and certainly not least, are the eats. MMM includes 5 meals, as well as 3 nights camping, during the event. Fri, Sat & Sun breakfast, with coffee each morning, and Fri & Sat night dinners are all site prepared by our own chefs and volunteers. Shared meals have always been a big part of MMM and theycontinue to be. With a menu that is as varied and robust as the riders that come together and make March Moto Madness greater that the total sum of its parts.

    For 2020 the MMM vision remains the same. For the rider, by the rider. The continued growth and camaraderie of those brought together for 3.125 days each March is proof of the bonds forged at March Moto Madness.
    $125 per rider pre registered before March 15th, $150 at the gate.

    I'll be there for my first Dual-Sport/ADV rally. Going solo, so I'm looking forward to meeting, and hitting the trails with, new people.

    Forecast this year is sunny and warm, but who can really trust the weather nerds? And remember, we’ll have new portalets!

    Coming from NW Florida and looking forward to it! Trying to decide what bike is better suited so any recommendations are welcome. (Big Triumph 1200 or smaller WR250).

    Dash, bring both of them if you can, lots of great forest roads as well as tarmac, like the Cherohala Skyway for the big bike. Or we usually have some guided small bike rides that you’re 250 would be great on. Glad your coming,

    Where at in NW FL?? I am close to Pensacola. I am thinking of heading that way with my Tiger 800. Thinking of trailering up there for my first adventure rally. Just in case the bike will not make it back.

    I have been to the area multiple times on motorcycles. Strictly asphalt. This would be a first for offroad. The reason I would trailer is the just in case while not being the best off pavement. Long way back to Florida on foot. I have a Tiger 800 that wants to explore off pavement mountain trails.
