The Commonwealth of Virginia wants you to ride your motorcycle there, and they’re offering incentives that go beyond great scenery and interesting food.
From now through October, riders and passengers travelling in Virginia can collect prize points by having a special passport stamped at participating "Motorcycle Grand Tour" locations.
Anyone who finishes their tour of the state with 164 points will get a special jacket and will be entered in a draw for prizes that include season passes for the VIR race track, a California Sidecar Factory gift certificate, $500 from Dr Pepper, and more. Riders who collect more than 100 points will be entered in other draws.
To take part, you have to ride your motorcycle in Virginia, but you also have to log on at motorcycleva.com and download a registration form. Registration is $25 U.S., but for that you’ll get a t-shirt, a ride pin, and the special passport.
