It's coming: The Cannonball Bike Run!

All this and much, much more at the Cannonball Bike Run...

Fast bikes, high speeds, hot chicks and booze-fuelled partying. Sounds good? Then you should look at signing up for the next Cannonball Bike Run (CBR). The CBR was started in Europe in 2005 and with five of these events planned for this year, it sure is going places!

If you live in the US, the American CBR is going to take place between the 13th and the 17th of September. And the event is titled ‘Coming to America: 5 Days of Mayhem,’ so you can probably imagine all the wonderful debauchery that’s going to be a part of it.

Here's a promo video - see what it's like being on the CBR

While the exact route is still a secret (to stop the coppers from spoiling all the fun of course…), the American CBR will start in LA and wind up in Las Vegas. That’s more than 3,000km of riding motorcycles on some of the best roads in the US. Entry fee is US$2,195 per bike and rider, but the package includes a bit of VIP treatment – the launch party in LA, daily breakfasts and dinners, first class hotel accommodations and support vehicles for your luggage etc.

Three European CBRs are also scheduled to take place in 2007. The first is CBR Le Mans (April 20 – 22), which is billed as ‘The ultimate weekend of red-hot riding, partying, and motorsport action.’ Second is CBR MotoGP (June 29 – July 1), and the third is CBR Europe (August 21 – 27). And yeah, the winners of the European legs of the CBR will be flown to the US, where they’ll be pitched against the Americans.

Go to the CBR website for more details on how you can be a part of the action!
