    Does any one know of some one riding in this challange? I would love to get some actual feedback from a rider.

    If you have not heard of this, it would take too long to discribe all of it. Check out the web site.

    1,000 riders left this Sunday.
    Harley air cooled VT only.
    7,000 miles.
    .5mill prize if you follow all the rules and get there first.

    There's a group on it out of Chesters HD in Mesa AZ. They are posting on Facebook and putting up a pdf daily update on the Chester's website. Chester's Harley-Davidson, Mesa, Arizona Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Dealership - About half way down the page is a banner link to it. Last update was Friday June 18.

    I read an article on this in Cycle Source a couple of months ago. Looks like quite the challenge with a pretty good payoff to the winner...

    There is no second place.

    A guy that works with my dad talked to a guy riding in it yesterday. His clutch went out on his bike. This guy had three people following him and they repaired his bike and had him back up and running in about 45 minutes. He was on a 2010 street glide that he bought new the end of Feb and it alread had over 23,000 miles on it. He said he has done 2 runs from FL to CA to try to get prepared for this.

    Interesting info, sounds like a serious run for the money. Do you know, if a rider gets one speeding ticket, is he disqualified from the money? Can you find out what place he might be in?

    many question about this-reports are fewer than 500 riders, rules say disqual if you get any moving violation, there are reports of other than air cooled Harleys allowed in at last minute....many question as to whether anyone will receive $500,000.....

    clutchandchrome.com says that 4 riders crashed (no major injuries) the first day of the run up near Tallahassee. Article goes on to say the winner will have to take polygraph and test for performance enhancing drugs (Viagra!? :D ) to prove they followed the rules.

    I think Stampede would be more fun.
