Motorcycle Cannonball 2012 Route & Dates

A number of people have asked when and where they can see the motorcycles and riders of the next Motorcycle Cannonball ride. The first Motorcycle Cannonball was held in 2010, was open to motorcycles from 1915 or older and took a southern route across the US. The next one will be in September 2012, is open to motorcycles from 1929 or earlier and it taking a longer 3800 mile northern route.

Our Publisher, Buzz Kanter, is signed up to ride his 1929 Harley on Team American Iron across the US on the second Motorcycle Cannonball. Buzz rode his 1915 Harley Selma on the first Motorcycle Cannonball. If you wish to support Buzz and Team American Iron, you will be able to purchase a Support Staff T-shirt on on sale by the end of March.
