Ladies and gentlemen, here’s our 24th Annual MMOC ride information, courtesy of the Three Musketeers. We be: Yours truly, fellow Past President Terry Blumenthal and esteemed vintner and Honorary Member Phil Ponzo. Terry did most of the leg work, I added a pinch of salt and Phil a splash of Chianti and dash of rosemary. We hope you enjoy the flavor of our off-the-beaten-path back country journey.
Terry has reserved 20 rooms at each hotel, 5 of which are King and the remaining 15, Double Queens. Each establishment has a 1 month cutoff for the guaranteed rates and room availability and a 72 hour cancellation clause. All bookings are under “MMOC Group Reservations”.

As is our custom, we will once again form into our successful two group format, Touring and Sport Touring. Again, we’re looking for two dedicated chase vehicles; all riders will be asked for a $30.00 toke to defray their gas guzzler propensity. Daily start times will vary dependent on weather, route and mileage, but you must be fueled up before departure. There should not be a drop of rain, perhaps one foggy morning and heat management may be necessary in 2 areas, dictating earlier departure times. Sound off if you’re joining us, and where.
