SBWS Grand Tour?

  • I was thinking about doing a Grand Tour type of ride similar to what Rose City Motorcycle Club does ( Only instead of having people pay a registration fee and get a passport book to have stamped at places, it’s a bit more organic …

    We have a number of people contribute to a list of “check points” around the area - say a 500-1000 mile radius of Portland. The places would be small and preferably remote locations that involve a fun ride to get to, and serve a good burger or have some unique draw to them. The directive would then be that people would need to ride to those check points and shoot a picture of themselves with their bike, in front of the place, followed by a post to an SBWS forum category that was setup specifically for this activity.

    It could be setup with a time-limit to complete all checkpoints and then when it was over, we could get together for a big barbecue/banquet where we could raffle off some stuff, drink beer and bullshit about the epic adventures we had while riding to all the obscure, out-of-the-way places that served as checkpoints. The number of checkpoints you hit would determine the number of raffle entries you get.

    Thoughts? Would anyone be interested in doing that?

    Would love to do this, unfortunately…

  • If I had a motorcycle and the time I would be all over it! If a family vehicle and the wife and kids can come along then I’m all for it lol!

  • @murphomatic I know this post is really old, but I think it would be fun to revisit! Let me know if this is something I could help with!

  • @carriebob we should totally do the GT this year. There are some really great rides on here -

    I’m going to send in my app on Monday. Who’s with me??

  • Okay - I just filled out my application for the 2017 Grand Tour. On the line that says “Club Association/Affiliation” I put “” … just for fun. :) Dropping in the mail now!
