Isn't there usually a theme to the rally. I seem to remember one year it was locations that had something to do with transportation and another year I believe it was the legal system. Does anyone know what this year is about?


2018 R1200RT 3,200 miles, 2004 R1150RT 188,100 m, 1991 K100LT 128,700 m, 1982 R100RT 106,900 m

Something about "North American Safari" was mentioned in one of the reports.

I went out west from Maryland after one of the ironbutt rallies. I had a list of the checkpoints and if I could and it looked interesting I diverted a little to see them. One of the places that I remember was "Carhenge". http://carhenge.com/
