The Unsprung Motorcycle Road Rally, a friendly competition, where regularity, endurance, and riding skill, not speed are rewarded. Unsprung is based on the historic Motogiro d’Italia or “Motorcycle Tour of Italy” and features vintage motorcycles and riders from around the region.
More specifically Unsprung is a Regularity Rally with the objective to ride each course segment in a specified time. The day will consist of a morning course, a lunch stop, and an afternoon course. There will also be 4 timed agility courses, one before and after each road course. Riders will be assigned a Start Time and an End Time. They must leave the course start at their assigned Start Time and end at their assigned End Time or they are penalized. Similar rules apply to the Agility Course, which consists of a short tight-turn cones course. Riders must complete the course as close to the marked time as possible. Lateness and earliness are equally penalized. The day will culminate in an Open House at Nova Motorcycles, celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our move to Turners Falls, with an awards presentation, music, and food. The Open House is free and open to the public from 3 pm until 7 pm. Come and view a collection of vintage bikes, eat some great local food and be part of the Western MA motorcycle community.
There will be 6 classes; Pre-1965, 1965-1976, 1977-1990, Moped-50cc Scooter, Sidecars, and Open. The last being open to any make, model, and year. A $45 entry fee includes registration and lunch. Space is limited so register early. Riders must have a motorcycle license and a registered and insured bike. Registration will open sometime in March. Check-in will begin at 8:00 am the morning of the event and the Morning Course will begin around 9:30-10:00 am.
