Like riding your KLR (or any bike) and trying something new? The Bonzia run is a road rally that's similar to a Iron Butt competition, except that it's only 13 hours long. Basically, it's like a Midwestern Scavenger Hunt..
I've ridden in this rally several years and it's a lot of fun and the folks are great!!
Here's some answers to your current head scratching..
650 -- # of miles (approx.) winning ride will cover in 13 hours
113 -- # of days left until Bonzai 2008
79 -- # degrees Farenheit average high in Richland Center May 25
71 -- # of counties in Wisconsin
65 -- # of entries available originally
52 -- # degrees Farenheit average low in Richland Center May 25
37 -- # of entries available as of 2/1/08
13 -- # of hours available for rally fun
6 -- # of classes available (Luddite, Vintage, 2up, Rookie, Experienced, Expert)
6 -- # of states with bonus potential (WI, IL, IA, MI, MN, MO)
4 -- # of motels in Richland Center awaiting your reservation
2 -- it's two, two, two events in one
Did you know that:
Orson Welles, Les Paul, Allen Ludden, Frank Lloyd Wright, Spencer Tracy, Tyne Daly, Chris Farley, Tom Snyder, Heather Graham, Jackie Mason, Deke Slayton and Frank Caliendo were born in Wisconsin?
Wisconsin also likes to claim being the home to Houdini, and Fred MacMurray, although neither was really born here.
These are all important things for the well prepared rally rider to consider.
Currently loading the Yukon with enough Diet Coke to float a battle ship, digital cam, stack of legal pads, my favorite daughter, Henry the narcoleptic English Pointer, and setting off for a weekend of bonus hunting. It has been far too long since coffee and pie on the road. That will be remedied today. The work never ends ...
