A MUST READ!



"THE TBR 8 2017 MANIFESTO"

FINAL DETAILS...SO READ!!

BIG THANKS TO ALL OUR SPONSORS!

Will this run be easy? In 3 words: Up to you. This blog explains everything we’re doing in great detail (Almost), but we are also very adamant in stating that you be self-reliant on this run. How you might ask? Plan ahead. Please DO NOT expect others to do the thinking for you. Now, we won’t be totally without assistance if something does goes wrong, we will have a chase truck with a trailer (IF ANYONE ELSE WANTS TO JOIN IN AS A CHASE TRUCK THAT WOULD BE WELCOMED) along with many cool cats who will chip in and help a brother/sister out.  But again, we don’t want to hear you can’t change out your spark plug because you didn’t bring your socket wrench.....Plan ahead, be self reliant.
What kinds of bikes are allowed? The Tar Ball Run is open to anyone on any bike. Our personal tastes run toward the kind of bikes and people who frequent Chopcult.com. This means custom motorcycles influenced by the style of the 40’s to the 70’s. That being said, guys on Ducks, Jap bikes, or full dressers are absolutely cool. If you have a 50-grand (probably $10k nowadays) chrome abomination, you may feel out of place. If you ride a shitty old Shovel that blows up between Yehaw Junction and Daytona, you will fit right in. But again, make sure you or your buddies have the tools. Plan ahead and be self reliant.

What about idiots?
Nobody more than me, and those who have helped to organize this ride, wants to have a great time. With that said, THIS IS A RIDING EVENT and WE NEED to leave early to enjoy it Depending on the size of the group we may split up the chase trucks cover two groups if we don’t all stay together (But not hanging out at the camp waiting for others to get up).

How much is it going to cost? That depends on you. We aren’t charging for shit. AGAIN, Camping is free at J and S and the Desert Inn. Cabbage patch maybe $10. Food/booze is on you.
How many people are going? Don’t know 10? 20? Last year we had over 100.  From what I've heard its seems no one will show up to this shitty run. 

I’ve never done this type of ride before?—what should I expect? Nothing really, its a boring ride and you shouldn't come.

Our advice:
Be Prepared. Physical preparedness means having everything you need to sustain yourself for the entire trip. Though there will be several gas stops/mini marts along the way (Our Gas Stops), I would carry some type water at least, just in case you get stranded somewhere and TOOLS.

  • Here’s a minimum list of things you should pack for the ride:
       - Google it

 Finally…. 

This is a “loose” schedule, we're not tour guides, we just want to get a bunch of like minded people together for a kick ass ride and drink, eat and make some new friends along the way. Just remind yourself that you’re on a different time schedule.
