Ideally the Kickstart Classic rides should be fun for classic motorcycles and last two full days ending at a great motorcycle-related event, destination or rally. And the rides should not be within a month before or after the Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run in September 2014.
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.

The weather forecasts were pretty dire, especially as I was planning on riding my 1949 Harley bobber with no front fender in the predicted heavy rains. Just before the start of our 2012 Motorcycle Kickstart Classic ride, most of North Carolina had been thoroughly saturated with six consecutive days of heavy rain and occasional thunder […]
The winter of 2010-11 was too much for any rider to deal with considering all that snow we had. This winter was quite the opposite in most parts of the US and Canada. If you have not yet done your first ride safety check, I hope you can soon. At the very least, check the […]
