This is a 175 mile all day ride so in order for you to participate in the ride there are a few but important rules we must enforce.

1: RKA and Sonoma Raceway want you to leave a great impression on the public that sees us out on this ride. So we want safe and sane riding. No exhibition of speed, wheelies or stoppies. This is NOT A RACE but a leisurely ride through the ride country. Hold that thought.

2: You must have a road ready motorcycle which means among other things good or new tires, oil checked and full of fuel at the start.

3: Proper riding gear

4: There will be “escorts” riding along on this ride they will be introduced at the start of the ride. If you have any issue at all please contact one of these riders for help or to let them know you will be leaving the the ride and or stopping. We do not want to lose someone.

5: Lastly if you have FRS radio communication RKA will be using .... 7.7 .... channel 7, subchannel 7 for it's communications
