TO ALL: Please arrive on a mechanically sound motorcycle, including reasonable tread remaining on your tires. Each leg of this route hosts its own set of challenges, and it's your responsibility to ride safe for sake of your fellow riders.

Check your egos at the door folks. We all want to make it home to our family safe & sound, while enjoying a gorgeous route with wonderful people.
