Found out today about a rally hosted by COG or the Concours Owners Group.
It's called the Two Bits Rally and its a six hour ride introduction to the kind of events done at regular Ironbutt Association 1000 miles in 24 hour competitions. What's with the name? Well, it's Two Bits which is also what a quarter coin is known as, six hours is a quarter of the 24 hrs for an IBA SaddleSore Run, and there you go.
This year's Two Bits Rally happens on Friday, June 6, 2008, meeting/starting/ending at Frisco, Colorado. There's still time to sign up!
The above pin is one of the items every participant receives, you can also get a hat with the design on it but that's extra. As it is, you get to play for the small amount of $20! As with most rallies, there's prizes at the end and you get to see how you ranked against the other riders.
Randy, the guy who organizes this rally for the COG, sent me the picture above. Thanks Randy! He's got a great writeup about this rally and past rallies. Go on over to the COG site and read up on it, heck, sign up to attend it! LINK
You don't have to ride a Concours motorcycle to participate, Randy tells me there's almost as many Beemers as Kawasakis already signed up. He describes it as a scavenger hunt on two wheels, should be a lot of fun.
