Post 2017 Eastern V-Strom Rally Slow Speed Race

It's time to start thinking about the 2017 Eastern V-Strom Rally (May 18 - 21) and the Slow Speed Race. I will be running the race again this year with assistance from ????. 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.

I understand 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 2016 winners:




The 2017 winner could be you.


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

Post 2017 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 2017 Eastern V-Strom Rally, May 18 - 21. 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 ten (10) participants to sign-up on-line will receive a special bonus gift.
