    Default 2016 Cannonball coverage

    The 2016 coast-to-coast Cannonball Ride kicks off Saturday. This year, every bike making the 3,319-mile trip from Atlantic City, New Jersey, to Carlsbad, California, will be at least 100 years old. And nearly all of them will be ridden by AMCA members. I'll be driving the sweep truck again, and I hope to share daily updates in the Club News section of the website. You can find a preview story there now, with info on all the public stops where you can see Cannonball riders from coast to coast. Here's a link: http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=113&cntnt01origid=221&cntnt01returnid=97

    Thanks Bill, I enjoyed your 2014 reports...even though I was on that run.

    Bill,

    Am I the only one who will confess I'd rather read your reports while comfortably sipping my morning coffee than spend eight hours every day in the barely sprung saddle of a rigid-frame bike trying by sheer willpower to nurse it to the next stop? And then wake up the next morning and do it all over again. And again.

    They give out the night stops not the roads traveled.

    how do these pre 1915 bikes run on this ethanol gas? I started using Aviation gas in my panhead and what a difference. No more fouled plugs. After one ride she was smoking a lot, so much that I thought a valve guide went bad. In the morning I looked at the plugs and they were tan. It must have been the greasy build up in the pipes burning off.

    Just type in "Motorcycle Cannonball" and you will have all of the information that is made public. I'll be at the lunch stop in WV on Monday. Can't wait.

    I have that information, Thanks. I wanted to hook up with TR riding 101. the web site does not have a lunch stop posted for the 15th. I'm not sure when the riders get the route information, At the start of the race, or each day.
