Join Us On May 2013 Kickstart Classic Motorcycle Ride & Riding Into History

First off, we’d like to thank Spectro Oils and GEICO for sponsoring the Kickstart Classic May 2013 event, which is now in its third year. This ride is from Charleston, SC to St. Augustine, FL. Secondly, we’d like to remind everyone that this event is open to all make, models and years of motorcycle. Stock or custom, classic or chopper. Motorcycles with kickers ride up front and electric start only motorcycles ride in the back to pick up any parts that fall off the old ones up front.

All riders and passengers need to register for the is ride ($100 per rider or passenger gets an event t-shirt, event stickers, free meals, special hotel discounts and event support), and we are limited attendance to the first 100 to register. Registration is free to all Motorcycle Cannonball riders (but they still need to register) who ride his or her actual Cannonball bike (2010 or 2012).

    My husband has been talking about this ride for a couple of years now. He and 3 of his buddies will be joining you this year on their kickstarts. They are leaving Oakley, Calfornia this Saturday, May 4th and are RIDING their Kickstarts all the way out Charleston, SC. They are very experienced bikers and with well wishes, luck and a lot of prayers they will see you in Charleston on May 14th and join you on this ride!
