Scooter Cannonball Run


Jump to: navigation, search

The Scooter Cannonball Run is a bi-annual coast-to-coast "endurance challenge" taking ten days and covering a different route each time. Typical days involve 300-400 miles of non-highway riding with the occasional dirt road thrown in for spice. Participants are broken up into classes based on engine displacement and automatic or standard transmission. Unlike the Iron Butt motorcycle rallies, participants typically all take the same route, although that isn't required, and don't race non-stop. Everyone sets out at approximately the same time each morning, from the same location, and ends at the same location in the evening with riders frequently hanging out afterwards and staying at the same motel.

The event organizers provide no support along the way but riders are encouraged to pool their money to pay for support vehicles if they want to. Pitching in to help each other when the need arises seems to be a common train of SCR participants.
