The 2014 Motorcycle Cannonball event is a coast-to-coast route across the United States. The riders on pre-1937 motorcycles start the run in Daytona Beach, Florida on the worlds most famous beach. We finish the run after 4150 miles, on the Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington.
The Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run will follow a southeast-to-northwest 4,100 mile transcontinental route starting in Daytona Beach, Florida, and ending 17 days later in Tacoma, Washington. More than 100 riders from around the world are expected to participate in the event, which is open to participants riding pre-1937 motorcycles. Riders will average upwards of 300 miles per day, spending more than eight hours each day on the road. The scenic route sticks mostly to America’s back roads and will include planned stops at a variety of motorcycle dealers, museums and other points of interest along the way. The full route and complete schedule of stops is available at www.MotorcycleCannonball.com.
A long ride on very old motorcycles is the near future for Doobie Brother guitarist Pat Simmons and his wife, American Iron Magazine columnist, Cris Sommer Simmons. On the August 20 the pair will depart from the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum in Sturgis, South Dakota, and ride 1,000 miles east to the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to help Harley-Davidson celebrate its 110th anniversary.
It’s with great pleasure we continue to celebrate the first fifty years of motorcycling in America, with the 2013 annual Pewter Run, on September 29th 2013. We will return to the Historic 1774 Nathaniel Rolfe House preserved by the Penacook Historical Museum at 11 Penacook St. Penacook, NH. This autumn we will welcome our brothers in vintage arms from the Kickstart Classic.
Finally, some TV worth watching. Our friend and classic motorcycle guru Dale Walksler of Wheels Through Time museum has a new TV show on Velocity Channel called What’s In The Barn. The show focuses on Dales searching out old and rare motorcycles in barns, basements and garages and getting them back in running condition.
