2016 Motorcycle Cannonball – The Inside Scoop by Spitfire
With less than 2 weeks before the 4th Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run, the anticipation is building. This unusual event takes place every two years and is unique as Antique Riders take their 100 year old and older motorcycles out of their collections and ride them across North America. Who would do such a thing to an old and valuable motorcycle? Well only 100 people!!! The ride was capped at 100 in order to make the group size manageable. With the competitors and their support crews this massive moving event is quite the spectacle.
Bikernet will be covering the Motorcycle Cannonball through the eyes of Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo, RN/EMT and the Cannonball Medic. This is her 2nd Cannonball Run as a support person. Because her support comes at the back of each day’s course, breakdowns, impressions of town folk as the ride moves through rural America and features of riders will give you an intimate view of the reason for the term “Endurance Run”.
