The Bonzai Road Rally is a 12 hour event which is best described to those who have never tried a road rally as an oversized treasure hunt. The goal of the Rally Master it 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 a excellent rally to start with. Many of riders return year after year to this event.
