Rock Island Riders Benchrace Poem
They were getting old and paunchy
And there heads were balding fast,
As they sat around the pits BBQing,
Telling big crash stories of the past.
Of a race that they once raced in
And the trails that they had done,
In their exploits with other riders;
They were off road heroes, every one.
And 'tho to the street riders
Their off road tales became a joke,
But their new off road riders listened quietly
For they knew where of the trail cutters spoke.
But we'll hear their tales get longer,
For all the trails they cut that day,
And their machete swings a little faster
To make the Mauna Kea 200 riders day.
This year the Rock Island Riders will also have a "Tourist Class" ride around the Mauna Kea volcano mountain.
$50.00 entry fee...no trophies awarded...this is just a ride after all contestants have left the starting line for the the second half of the two day Mauna Kea 200 and "KING OF THE MOUNTAIN" Hare & Hound race.
I stopped by Hawaii Adventure Tours in Kona and talked to Jason and he said can rent some motorcycles to ride this Tourist Class...don't miss this cool tourist ride in Hawaii, give Jason a call for details.
Within the next few days the RIR's will have downloadable MK200 entry forms and full information about this world class endurance race at> mk200.com
