The Motorcycle Cannonball is something else. Riders riding 90+ year old bikes across the United States keeping the engines running and the bikes rolling. Their chase trucks, if they have one, aren’t allowed on the same route and are only able to assist at the stop over point each night. You can read all about the Motorcycle Cannonball here: http://motorcyclecannonball.com/ I always enjoy reading about the riders and their bike. Check the Riders tab and choose your favorites to cheer on. Friday 9-21-18 Spokane, WA. Stop Over. Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson is going all out The riders will be there from 4:20 pm to 6:00 pm. After that the riders are free to head to their Hotel to do any needed work on their bikes but the fun will continue on. Saturday 9-22-18 Kennewick, WA – 12:30 – 1:00 PM Rattlesnake Harley-Davidson will be hosting lunch for the riders. The bikes will be on display as the riders have lunch. The Dalles, OR For the night. 5:00 – 6:30 On Federal St. between 2nd and 3rd. Hosted by The Dalles Chamber of Commerce. Sunday 9/23/18 Grand Finish 1:30 PM Skamania Lodge, Stevenson, WA. The riders and bikes will be there until 4:00 PM. I hope there is a good showing of PNWet ADVers to cheer on these riders as they cross the finish line. In 2014 they ended in Tacoma and they were treated to a show by the Cossack's Drill team. In 2016 it ended in Carlsbad, CA and it was blah. Let's once again show the Cannonball riders and organizers that we appreciate them coming to our part of the country. The route and descriptions of the stop overs are here: http://motorcyclecannonball.com/route/ The organizers ask, for safety sake, that other riders not try to join the route. With that they do not publish the exact route, in fact the riders just get the route the night before each stage. I will be at the Fri., and Sat. stopovers and of course at the Grand Finish Sunday. If there anyone would like to join me I will be camping Sat. night at Beacon Rock State Park. Sunday how about a lunch meet up before we head to watch the bikes roll through the finish line? Sunday 9-23-18 at 11:30 AM Big T’s Diner 73 NW First Street, Stevenson, WA http://www.eatatbigts.com/location-and-hours ADVs very own RTWDoug will be riding the Cannonball again this year sporting his 88 number. If you are not familiar with him look up his ride reports and see if you can figure out what make this guy tick. You can also check out his rides reports here: http://www.motosapiens.org/forum/ I first met him when he returned to the United States after riding around the world on a chopper, yes a chopper. I was following his ride report and was thrilled to get to meet him. I have had the pleasure of our path crossing a few more times over the years.
