What are Kick-Off Routes?
HOT BIKE Tour riders we will be riding in from all routes north, south, east, and west! For example, the guys at First Mfg Co. in Oceanside, NY, are throwing a HOT BIKE Tour Kick-Off Party tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 5. The next morning they will be hitting the road and headed south. Each route will be joined by one of our editors and invited Pro-Builders with various stops along the way. This will make it easy for you to join whichever of the many rides works best for YOU! Regardless if you join up with us or chart your own course we encourage you to share your journey with millions of people online by using the #HotBikeTour and #Longrider hashtags while riding to Johnson City.
Official (and unofficial) rides are invited to join Builders, Staff and Special Guests at our friends, Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson for the official GEICO Motorcycle HOT BIKE Tour FREE Kick-Off Party on Thursday, September 7 from 1pm-10pm. The afternoon will kick-off our Bike Build-Off competitions, feature live music, great food and drink, Smoky Mountain’s 100 foot drag races and more.
