Moto Giro is a multi-day vintage bike riding skills challenge. Riders follow a beautiful scenic route that is designed to be enjoyable on vintage bikes, typically on quiet back roads. Along the way, riders stop and participate in timed ability tests (think low speed turns, cone slaloms, etc.). Food and fellowship are valued characteristics of Moto Giro, so you can count on an enjoyable weekend!
Bikes: All bikes must be pre-1968 and less than 300 cc. They can be any brand.
Passengers: Passengers in sidecars are welcome.
When/Where it Happens: There are typically 3-4 Moto Giro events held per year throughout the US. (See more info section for link to schedule.)
Governing Body: United States Classic Racing Association (USCRA) and most events are AMA sanctioned. A USCRA Race License is not required for Moto-Giro, but AMA membership is encouraged. You can usually sign up for AMA membership at the time of event registration.
Cost and Entry Fees: Entry fees vary by event and location. Figure on about $100 per day for registration and fuel. AMA membership is approximately $50.
Preparation: The first order of business is to make sure you have a qualifying motorcycle that is in good running order. Some mechanical familiarity with your vintage motorcycle is a plus, since it is not uncommon for vintage motorcycles being ridden for two straight days to have some minor mechanical issues. The good news is that there are so many experienced vintage riders that you’re likely to find someone to help you with a repair. Most people trailer their bikes or bring them in the back of their pick-up trucks or vans. Although some people dress to match the era of their machine, vintage riding apparel is not necessary - your regular riding gear will do just fine.
