The Scooter Cannonball Run is an exciting event that happens every two years. It’s something for those who want to push themselves that little further, and the next one runs in 2018.
Wait, What’s the Scooter Cannonball Run?
This is a coast-to-coast endurance event. Riders take the best motorcycle roads in American, covering 3,500 miles. There are rally points to collect throughout, based on your time, regularity, and distance along the way.
Why Would Anyone Do That?
Why you take part is completely up to you. For many, it’s a way to raise money for charity. Others are in it for themselves, proving that they’re capable of doing such a thing.
It can be a race for some, but it’s not designed that way. It’s more of one of those accomplishments that scooter fans love to say they can do.
What About the Age of Your Scooter?
The good news is you don’t need a new scooter to take part. There was a “handicap” in place in both 2014 and 2016. Chances are it will remain during the next race. Any Vespa from 1946 onwards will be considered for power. After all, some have a bigger engine size, so will do more and go further. There is a formula used to make sure everyone has an even shot.
Where Will It Be?
The run changes route every year. You can check over previous routes and try them out to see if you’re up for the challenge. The 2018 route will be available through the official forum and site later in 2017, once it has been finalized. You can use the forum to discuss your wishes and see what other runners want to do.
Will you take part in the Scooter Cannonball Run in 2018? Could this be your exciting adventure in two years?
