Thumb Tour of Honor 2014

On April 1, the seven memorial sites will be released for the biggest state, as well as for the lower 48 and Hawaii. Butch Rudowski, of Anchorage, is the Alaska state sponsor and has written a wonderful page on traveling by motorcycle there. Or renting.

It's still being worked on (we're still searching for the perfect photo), but check it out HERE.

And if you can suggest or contribute a great motorcycle-themed photo, give me a holler.

Thumb Tour of Honor 2014

On April 1, 300 selected destinations will be released in 49 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, to visit up until October 31. This is a self-directed ride to honor American heroes, and a great way to see the country.

It’s a great way to see the country because the sites are spread out in each state, and many feature local motorcycle roads. TOH is a self-directed, AMA Grand Tour ride.

Any rider who visits all seven memorials in any state or “region” will receive a Finisher’s pin and certificate at the end of the year. The ride lends itself to IBA rides with special IBA/TOH certificates for riding to four of the sites on an Iron Butt pace. IBA also gives out “Saddlesore Extreme” certificates for riding to all seven sites in a state. All IBA rules apply.

Also, the 1st three riders to visit all seven sites in a state win a trophy (limit of 3 trophies per rider).

Registration is $75 which buys swag, rally flag, and a donation to the rider’s choice of charity: Fisher House Foundation, American Legion’s Operation Comfort Warriors, or Police and Fire: The Fallen Heroes.

Many riders comment that it’s the best reason they’ve had to ride in a long time, the ultimate “kitchen pass.”

Sites are released on the website at 0001 hours (EST), April 1. Find out more at Tour of Honor.

This looks fun. (And perfect for me, seeing as I'm a vet and I'm prepping to do an Iron Butt National Parks Tour this summer.) Thanks for the heads up!

Time period

Can you do this ride over several days/weeks, like visit one today then go for a second one in a couple of weeks and so on?

The seven that I visit have to be all in One state.

From what I could tell from the website, so long as you hit seven between April 1 and October 31, you qualify. Not all in one day and based on what they're saying over there, not all in one state. They only way it gets technical is if you want a trophy, in which case you have to be one of the first three to hit all seven in one state. (I'll leave that to others, I just want to finish.)

Cheers

Yes, any seven sites in any state will qualify for finisher status. Many riders get hooked and can't just stop at seven. :-)

Also, if you want to do an Iron Butt run while visiting any four memorials, you get a special certificate from Iron Butt Association. And a SS1K-Extreme certificate is awarded if you visit all seven in a state while on an Iron Butt run.

The rules are found here: http://tourofhonor.com/pages/rules.html

Just one more month until sites are released, and it's quite a lineup this
year in Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah and New Mexico. In total, 49 states and 305 memorials to visit, a great way to see the country!
