  • 2015 Attendance: 69,264
  • Jon planned out the route (using: https://trips.furkot.com) that allowed us to touch five states along the way:

      <p>The route home was much less exciting...</p>

  • We had a quick interview with Richard Worsham (Founder/Designer) from Janus motorcycles and we'll plan to have them back on the show for a longer conversation in the future.  
  • We also had a conversation with a rider following a demo ride on a Motus MST.

A few pictures from the trip below and we have a ton of photos and videos that we are working on for future release.
