Post 2016 Eastern V-Strom Rally Slow Speed Race

It's time to start thinking about the 2016 Eastern V-Strom Rally (May 12 - 15) and the Slow Speed Race. I will be running the race again this year with assistance from Mark444 and Fire Fox. I think it's a safety issue; I entered in 2014 and they saw how bad I did and were concerned for the safety of the spectators.

It's a great event and an opportunity to show your riding prowess. Anyone can ride fast but only the experts can ride slow.

The event started back in 2012. The winner that year was "NC Hillbilly". In 2013 a Women's Division was added. The winners that year were "Turtle" in the Men's Division and "Trooperette" in the Women's Division.

The 2014 winners:




The 2015 winners:




The winners get a gorgeous trophy. Think Stanley Cup, eh! Ok, maybe not that big or that shiny but nice.

Post 2016 Eastern V-Strom Rally Slow Speed Race

How about a show of hands for those interested in participating in the Slow Speed Race at the 2016 Eastern V-Strom Rally, May 12 - 15. It will be held at the Iron Horse MC Lodge on Saturday, starting around 4:30 - 5:00 PM, in the Lodges parking lot. We will have both a Men's Division and a Women's Division. Open to all attendees and motorcycles (excluding trikes and hacks).

The event & course will be similar to previous years; about 60 feet long, with a wooden bridge (bump), and some curves. Multiple runs, usually three, and we'll record your best (slowest) time. Foot touch and the run is over with no time recorded.

Awards will be made Saturday night in the Lodge following dinner.

It's a fun event with serious bragging rights as the "Slowest V-Strom Rider in the East". Plus the winners receive a gorgeous trophy.

In addition, the first twelve (12) participants to sign-up will receive a special bonus gift.

If you would like to participate, please post your forum name (or real name) and state/province (optional) below .......... by copying and pasting (not "Quote") the list below:

Hey Prowler, did you notice on the eastern gathering web page mark444 made that you'll be putting on a stunt show haha!! I seen that last night for the first time and it took me a second to realize what was going on there. Let's hope you stay stunt free this year.

Come on folks, the event is getting closer, lets sign up now and avoid the rush. We need some ladies to sign-up too; Trooperette, Lynn, Marylu, foxy, others ........ ?

The winners (both Men's & Women's Divisions) get serious bragging rights as the "Slowest V-Strom Rider in the East", a gorgeous trophy, and now a big CASH award too. Yep, a CASH award for both Men's and Women's winner from an anonymous benefactor.

In addition, the first twelve (12) participants to sign-up will receive a special bonus gift.

If you would like to participate, please post your forum name (or real name) and state/province (optional) below .......... by copying and pasting (not "Quote") the list below:

Haha good try Ken. I could use one too as we both sucked at it last year! This year I'll be trying to do it on my V2 so maybe I'll have better luck. See you in a few weeks!
