Default The American Motorcycle Rally

My name is Greg Sarff and I'm President and Founder of The American Motorcycle Rally June 13th-23rd, 2012. I wanted to invite all the Victory riders who would like to participate in a 7200 mile ride around the US. The ride will start and end in Columbus, Ohio which is celebrating its 200th anniversary.
There is $500,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs! We are a non-profit corporation benifiting Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus. This event is an endurance challange but it can be easly completed in the 10 window. Please go to americanmotorcyclerally.com for more information and if you have any questions, dont hesitate to ask. Thanks and have a safe 2012 riding season! Greg

Bring it to AZ and I'm in. I know that won't happen, but just saying. Would love to be a part of this.

The GPS company they're using is from Scottsdale.

Pricey entry fee. $1000 plus another $250 for the GPS tracking device they make you purchase.

I'm starting the Poor Man's Ride, it's 100+ miles, wherever you want to go, the prize is where you stop to eat.

No entry fee, no GPS allowed, no t-shirt or pin...

I'm going on mine this weekend.

+1 on that. Count me in!

That is what a ride is supposed to be about. There are very few good rally's left that haven't succum to being completely over-commercialized pieces of junk.

I think you guys missed the point of this. This is a benefit ride, and the entry fee should be looked at as a donation. Maybe your accountants have advised you against this sort of thing for tax purposes, but I think it's a good thing at it's core.

Sorry if I'm off key here. Just my .02

If you'd quit ruining perfectly good floorboards, you might have a few bucks for an entry fee to the big parade. And the guy with the pins might be able to catch up and decorate you too.
