The 2016 edition of the Motorcycle Cannonball finished after 3300 miles in Carlsbad, California on Sunday September 25, 2016 after 120 riders started in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 10th.
I first became aware of the inaugural Motorcycle Cannonball before their 2010 edition, which finished at Santa Monica pier. The Motorcycle Cannonball is a brutal test of your own personal endurance and your machine's. After witnessing these vintage machines cover 3300 miles- it gives you a new appreciation for what the Cannonball is about. Taking your 2016 Road Glide for a spin across the country isn't quite the same.
Seeing early American and British motorcycle history is a feast for the eyes; leather belt drives, exposed pushrods and rockers, total loss oil systems, single cylinder all the way to Henderson four cylinder bikes. Scroll though and enjoy the images- each one opens larger in a lightbox.
