In Little Rock, Registration will be open Friday August 23rd from 9am to 6pm, and again on Saturday August 24th from 9am to 6pm. At all other venues, Registration opens at noon, and stays open until 6pm at each venue. If you miss getting to Registration before it closes on any Cruise Night, you will have to get your credentials at the next venue. We do not conduct registration at the morning drivers' meetings. If you plan to go to more than one city, you fall under the multi-city registration price and will only have to pick up your credentials once. If you would like to register for one day only then decide to go to another stop, you will need to stop at the Registration trailer in the next city to register again. The credential you get as a one day registrant will not be accepted at any other venue.

What are the advantages of registering for multi-city?

Full price registration has its rewards! As a multi-day participant, you will receive a goodie bag stuffed full of cool giveaway items and freebies from Hot Bike and also from Hot Bike Power Tour(tm) sponsors! Once you pick up your credentials, you are set for the entire tour and do not have to stop at registration again. You also get way cool giveaways that are given away at the main stage nightly and at the Sponsors booths at each stop. One day registrants are not eligible for many of the giveaways. Additionally, one day registrants have to stop and register each day at registration. For example, if you are doing three stops you would have to stop and register three times as a one-day participant. One day registrants do get a Hot Bike souvenir, but no goodie bag.
