I was wondering who in here will be participating. I currently am looking into registering for this. It should be real fun, and some serious riding will occured as I am told. So far it will be held next year on late May, it should run for 7 days.

I have a buddy who told me that they have them out in europe he was going to be in it but got called up to go to Iraq.

Im from nj but if everthing goes smooth I will definetly do that. And the fee is up there but you also get alot for what you pay. That would definetly be experiance of a lifetime and if you get like 2 riding buddies it will be a blast. And they say that they have choosen best routes with best scenaries & twisties. Start saving up. [8D]

holy shit why does it have to be the week after my spring break and start in LA. I've always wanted to do a connonball run since i was a little kid. If it was a week earlier and started in new york or something i would be all over that. I'd take out extra student loans to pay for it.

#3,750 per bike if you catch the early reservation, $3,950 per bike after. That includes food and lodging, but not gas. Figure another $250 in gas for the 2,500 mile run, and I'm sure drinks, party favors, etc. aren't covered, and it's all first class VIP shit...so figure at least $500/night just for the parties, and a shit load of money for the 48-hour finale party in Las Vegas after the run. Most of the people that do Cannonball runs (bike or car) are filthy rich enthusiasts. Cannonball car runs see an insane percentage of exotic over-$200k cars...it's crazy.

Well actually it's not the same as the car run. i know some of those beasts are worth more than my home. LOl But i will save my beans. No as for partying i figure i will not be doing to much drinking during the run, but will get trashed in vegas.....

Eh, same general premise as the car run, just about 1% of the money invested. heheh...I saw a video on the net a few years back of a guy in a Ferrari F40 with a camera mount fabricated into his roll cage (yeah...roll cage...) aimed at the speedo as he did over 220mph on an interstate somewhere during a Cannonball run.

Which reminds me, somewhat off topic...there was a drug running operation going between Miami and I think Sarasota or somewhere just south of there...they had a fleet of black Lamborghini Murcielago's that were modified for even higher performance, and that were completely blacked out and equipped with IR night vision on some rediculous HUD setup, and they'd actually load up these Lambo's and drive like 240 all the way at 2am across the 'Alligator Alley' stretch of I75 that cuts across the state. Heard about it on the news when the FBI set up some crazy task force to stop them complete with exotic cars and military jets, or something. Fucking nuts...it's even more out there than some of the Miami Vice-type movie plots.

I love watching the cannonball DVDs, can't wait for this DVD to release in a couple years [:p]

If any of you havent ever seen them, they can be downloaded from many P2P programs and I think they're on Google Video as well.
