    According to the OP and the website, this is the last week to register before online registration closes and your only option is to purchases tickets at the gate (prices go up $25).

    Just a reminder!

    Got my registration in. Wahoo I am stoked! Been to the area many times on blacktop. This will be the first for the adventure bike. First off road rally and looking to learn a lot. I have enough to get by but looking to upgrade some kit. Are there vendors for riding gear? Or any good stores in the area for off road gear? Arriving Thurs morning running solo.

    Not sure if there will be riding gear vendors there. If you're coming in from OH, I'd probably stop at Mountain Motorsports off of I-40 on the way in. They'll have KLIM gear on the racks. There should be other parts/accessories vendors at the Rally though.

    Hey all!

    Here is the link to download the 2020 Cherokee Challenge. Twisted Throttle has sponsored it again this year, great folks who like to give back to the riding community.

    Here is a link to our dropbox with some GPX routes from past years and the 2019 Cherokee Challenge. Anyone with the link should be able to download. If you have any routes you'd like to share let me or LtDan know and we'll put them there as well.

    I know of several people bringing small bikes. A monkey, a couple of Z125's. Hell I'm bringing my CHonda, TaoTao Hellcat, but I'll just be running around camp herding cats.

    Not to throw a turd in the punchbowl, but given current events,,,,, will the show go on? Far from a germaphobe, just putting it out there. Among others, Sebring next weekend now cancelled.

    We don't plan to cancel. We have made plans for more hand washing stations and a hand held infrared thermometer to check those that look suspect at the gate. :D

    We will ask people to use basic courtesy and not come if they are ill or showing symptoms.

    Made my reservation a few months back for one of the electric sites. I’ll be bringing down my small camper and my tw200. Looks like a real good time. Fingers crossed that it’s able to go on but I understand completely if it has to be postponed. Better to keep everyone safe and healthy!

    Yea everything here is canceled and the govenor closed all restuarants and bars except carry out. Rumor is they are talking if we leave the state we may have a waiting period before getting to go back to work. If that is real I will have to cancel. Sucks as this would be my first year at MMM and am really looking forward to it. But nobody wants to spread this thing. Stay safe and healthy.

    Hello All
    Unfortunately we have had to cancel. Over the weekend the changes, recommendations and "suggestions" from state, federal and CDC just made it hard to see a way forward with the rally. We are offering refunds (less the $10 processing fee to cover the credit card costs) or a credit for next years MMM 2021. Details can be found at the link below. Sorry for any stress and we hope you'll still go ride with any time off you had planned.

    Stay well!
    The MMM Crew

    I know it was tough but it was absolutely the right call. Huge pat on the back (from 6 ft away) for having the guts to make it.

    I'm doing a credit for next year, I really want to go to this event!

    If I do the credit, am I already registered for next year or do i need to do that part again?

    Let us know if you have t-shirts left for this years event, I'll happily buy a couple.
