This year's event will focus on five locations, all conjoined events with benefits for the local communities. Our beneficiary will be Operation Homefront, a veterans support organization that focuses on helping veterans in your communities. The event will center on an IBA Saddlesore 1000 with travel in four states: Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. The entry fee is $150 per rider and $125 per passenger. Each will receive a Rider's Edition event shirt (requires registration by deadline), IBA certificate & associated bling, and 100 free raffle tickets for the Celebration Event at their location.

Rides will begin at each location on August 21, 2020 at 4:00 AM. The rides will complete at approximately midnight. On August 2nd, 2020 each location will have a celebration party to recognize riders that completed the Saddlesore 1000. This is open to the public and will include raffles, silent auctions and a 50/50. There will be food and fun for everyone, so bring your friends and family.

This year, IMRGs and Indian dealerships will be the central host location for registration and information. All riders are invited, regardless of what you ride. This is about the charity, not your bike. Lead personnel in your location will be listed for additional information. In a nutshell, the event is broken into a few steps.

  • Start ride with launch event at your local location designation
  • Complete the Saddlesore 1000
  • End ride at your local location designation
  • Celebration event with food, beverages, raffles, silent auctions, recognition of riders, 50/50 and a lot of fun for everyone (public invited to this)

Among our goals is 20 or more riders per location.

Registration will be availble in February, 2020. GPX files will be available for registered riders. Your packet will be emailed to you for printing and signatures. It must be brought on the ride. Much information will be filled out from your registration to reduce you time filling out the form.



This does not indicate planned fuel stops and required stops for receipts needed for IBA qualifications. The final ride will be very similar to this and will be just over 1,000 miles, as recommended by the IBA for verification purposes.

The ride will take each rider between 18 and 22 hours. Most will be about 21 hours with fuel stops and food at press events. The ride MUST be completed in 24 hours or less and documented per IBA requirements.
