Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally

Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally Riders

In 1987, more than two thousand motorcycle enthusiasts from the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club, joined the founder, Corporal Ray Manzo at the Capitol Building in Washington DC to host an exciting motorcycle event dedicated to acknowledge war heroes. The event was named Rolling Thunder I.

Member Bob Schmitt imagined that the motorcycle rally would be like a sound of rolling thunder, giving birth to the rally's name. Not the most original, but it works, and this isn't a motorcycle rally to be taken lightly.

The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally

Mad Bastard Scooter Rally

The Mad Bastard Scooter Rally is like your crazy ex: You'll call it foul names, find yourself caught up with it in situations you'll regret in the morning, and no matter what you do to protect yourself this rally will be a pain in the butt.

For some of us, leather and cruisers just aren’t hardcore enough, and crotch rockets just don’t capture the true essence of riding. We are the few, the strong, the proud. We are the Mad Bastards, and this is our story.

This year the rally has riders travelling across Canada with their sights set on raising over $100,000, all while exploring the great white north on their iron steeds.
