Motorcycle Cannonball 2016
Law Tigers, America’s Motorcycle Lawyers, is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Motorcycle Cannonball. The Motorcycle Cannonball is a truly unique motorcycling experience. In just a short time, it has become a highly anticipated annual event that attracts riders and collectors from all corners of the world.
The event made its debut in 2010 with a small group of riders demonstrating that vintage motorcycles could withstand the ultimate road riding test- traveling coast to coast. The grueling event is a true test of each rider’s ability to restore, maintain, and navigate a 100-year-old motorcycle, while teaching rider and machine the meaning of the word endurance.
This year, coordinators have planned an authentic Century Race. Only motorcycles that are at least 100-years old will be allowed to qualify for the event- those machines manufactured in 1916 or earlier. Adding to the century theme- and maintaining the exclusivity of the Motorcycle Cannonball- only 100 riders will be selected to take part is this groundbreaking venture.
Details of each individual stop are all laid out for the participants and coordinators have planned a scenic route that will be challenging, but at the same time, manageable for the smallest single speed machines.
The 100 lucky participants will leave Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 10. They will traverse 3,400 punishing yet beautiful miles cross country to reach their destination in San Diego, California on Monday, September 26. Participants will ride 16 of the 17 days, with only one day off. The rest day will be on a week day when businesses are open, allowing riders the opportunity to procure necessary supplies. Riders will cover approximately 300 demanding miles per day, primarily on two-lane back roads with only 100 miles total on interstate highways.
The ride will commence late morning in Atlantic City, where riders will cross the Delaware River before entering the southern portion of Pennsylvania through Gettysburg. Riders will cross the Appalachian Mountains in the northern region of West Virginia on their way to Ohio and Indiana. The journey continues across the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau, Missouri heading toward the Ozarks. Beyond the Ozark Mountains lie the sprawling Kansas plains, beckoning riders closer to the Front Range of the Rockies at Pagosa Springs, Colorado. At an elevation of 10,856 feet, Wolf Creek Pass marks the spot for crossing the Continental Divide. Riders will prepare for an overnight rest at the Grand Canyon’s southern rim after entering Arizona in the Four Corners region. After departing the southern rim, riders will trek through the desert by way of Joshua Tree National Park, and head for the event’s conclusion in San Diego.
Banquets will be served at the start and the finish, with several receptions and scheduled meals along the way.
