Throughout the tour, motorcycle owners will be able to pick up and take off from any city following fellow motorcyclists to the final destination. Participants can join the tour for one day or as many days as they can. Spectators are free. 

You can ride and party your way across the Midwest, hitting all five stops, or ride with us for a day and an evening or two filled with good times. 

Kicking off on Saturday, August 16, in Joplin, Missouri, join us for a great afternoon of bike shows, music, food, vendors and more as part of a good old fashion kickoff party!

August 17 the GEICO Hot Bike Tour hits the road, getting our kicks on parts of Route 66 and enjoying the back roads of Missouri as we head to the state capital of Jefferson City for an evening party downtown!

August 18 we shake off the dust of Jefferson City and set our sites on Springfield, Illinois, our second Springfield, for a great ride through the center of America’s Heartland!

August 19 brings the tour charging ahead to Bettendorf, Iowa for an evening show and party at the Isle Casino!

August 20 delivers the last day of the ride, but the fun is far from over. We’ll stop in Viola, Wisconsin to check out the S&S museum and facility. From there, the S&S team has put together a great route into Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin for a closing party that is not to be missed!

The morning of August 21 is a special event for LongRiders (those who have traveled all five days with us) where we will say our goodbyes and start dreaming of 2015!

    Anyone thinking about Going to Joplin for this?

    I just made reservations for Joplin hotel for Friday and Saturday night. Figure ride in Friday (8/15), hangout and enjoy the event Friday night and Saturday. Then on Sunday ride with the group into Jefferson City. I have also made a room reservation in Springfield, Illinois as I'm thinking then to ride on with the group to Springfield on Monday, 8/18, and then ride back to JC Tuesday. Hell who knows I made opt to do the whole trip.

    I am now planning on riding down to Joplin Saturday morning. Thinking KSU about 9 am. Once there, I plan to check into the tour, since I have already registered, find my hotel, the back to the Hot Bike Tour for some party. On Sunday ride back to Jefferson City with the group and then continue on with the Long Ride. Looking forward to it! I will post pics and comments all along the way.

    I have been to to meet ups now, and still have not met anyone from the central Missouri riders. The one at Harley-Davidson in Columbia, and today the one in Fulton.I guess I'm picking the wrong meetups, are the wrong time.

    If we go to Joplin I for sure want to ride with other bikers from this part of the country
