Post Re: 2014 Scooter Cannonball
So it looks like time permitting, and $$ permitting. I will be doing the 2014 cannon ball run. I have spoken with my buddy about being a support driver and he is all for it. So lets start a ZF group, we can share my support vehicle and cut the costs of that drastically.

Edit: Side note, 1k posts! :toot:

i'm still hoping to just be able to get to the starting line.

getting home is easy. i can just grab a uhaul and then drop the truck off not far from the house.

edit: checked uhaul prices and don't think that will happen. lot more expensive than the last time i used one.

If any of you guys are actually serious about doing the cannonball run, I may be persuaded to sponsor such an event. You gotta represent ZF.

Offer only open to Zuma riders. :cheers:

A couple hundred bucks, dont get your hopes up.

i'd be happy with a ride up rather than money.

wife had previously stated she'd be the support vehicle then recanted after talking to the mother in wreck.

Post Re: 2014 Scooter Cannonball
day 1 map released. not that were any directions to figure out for the start since there's only 1 way to really go.

but the elevation getting started will mean some lighter rollers and maybe some gear changes. maybe start with the 12/44 and change back to the 12/39 later.

This year is especially important because another huge scooter event is also combining with us. We are very excited to announce that the Scooter Cannonball Run, a coast to coast endurance event for scooters will be making it’s bi-annual race this year from Alaska to Louisiana ending at Amerivespa! It is a test of both rider and machine that covers 3500 miles and takes in some of the best motorcycle roads on the North American continent.

Post Re: 2014 Scooter Cannonball
How many people from here will seriously join this ride? i know many are interested, but in the end who really is planning to go? I was looking at the scooter cannonball website and they didnt say what the entry fee is, but i would imagine its not too crazy... the only real fees are getting you and your scoot out to alaska, then the room and board, gas, food, any maintenance issues along the way.. plus the mods you need to actually survive the trip.. i saw the mighty morphin gas tank and thats pretty killer.. i can drive for 3 weeks to and from work with that beast of a tank.. oil cooler should be on the must have list as well.. the scooter will be crazy hot after putting that many hours on the road, even with the forced air cooling.. but i guess my main question about the ride is, highway usage... riding a 50cc even with a 70-90cc kit is still gonna be a task for that long of a trip... if i were in the states i would definitely try to partner up with someone and go.. this is a trip for the books... hopefully when i move back from taiwan this will still be a yearly event... Good luck to anyone who takes on this challenge!!!!!!
