The goal of the Rally Master is to encourage participants to ride some of the best motorcycle roads in the upper Midwest by providing a set of of unique and interesting bonus locations (places) which they must find. At the end of the rally day, riders return to rally HQ with stories and memories. If you like motorcycle riding and would like to try a motorcycle road rally, the Bonzai would be an excellent rally to start with. Many of riders return year after year to this event.
