All makes of vintage twin shock, air-cooled drum brake bikes are welcome.
This is a chance to ride through some of the back country and some of the actual trails used during the famous Bad Rock ISDT qualifiers of the 1970s. This is where Hodaka motorcycles were designed, developed and put to the ultimate test.
The event takes off from the intersection of Broad and High Street in the historic town of Weston, approximately four miles east of Athena.
It’s about a 55-mile course, designed to be an easy ride for someone who has not been riding regularly or who wants to protect their investment in some of those hard-to-find Hodaka parts.
The club will provide a trailer at several points along the route to transport bikes with mechanical problems or bikes of riders who, for whatever reason,
just don’t wish to finish the course.
The course does include several sections where the route uses county roads.
Special arrangements have been made with the local authorities to allow trail bikes to use these sections during the event. Other than county roads, all the off road sections are on private property and will not require an ORV permit. However, all bikes must be equipped with a working silencer and spark arrester.
Kids may ride “modern” bikes providing they are 14 years or younger, riding bikes 100cc or smaller and accompanied by an adult on a qualifying vintage bike.
The ride coordinator may make additional exceptions to the “vintage” rule for ISDT/ISDE veterans and legends.
