Time is NOT your Friend
At BUGTEETH we know there are people like you who do things to the extreme. You are a different kind of athlete and you know that many others won't be able to do the things you do.
It takes a lot of planning and dedication to complete most distance challenges.
Here we provide you with many options, some with a time limit, some without.
You will find rides for Motorcycles, Tripods (Anything with 3 wheels) and Cages (which are any Car, Truck, Semi or anything with 4 wheels or more).
We also offer Group fun we call the BugTeeth Run where a group of you travel across the country taking any routes you may think will allow you to complete it in a shorter time than anyone else in your group.
You will get a certification and a patch once documentation is verified
We have shirts, hoodies and hats as well.
Plan accordingly and be safe at all times.
Keep in mind while planning to complete a certification challenge that there are quite a few things that can go wrong such as :
Your cell phone can die trying to connect to out of range towers. Keep your phone off until you need it and/or make sure you can charge it off your motorcycle.
Flat tire. AMA includes towing in their $50 annual membership fee. Have enough tools and a pump or CO2 on hand to at least plug a nail hole and fill the tire.
Running out of fuel. Find out how far to the next fuel especially when crossing a desert.
Hitting a deer or other animal. Slow down at dawn and dusk. Learn how to threshold brake. Duck rather than swerve if you can’t avoid an impact.
Offroad. You’re much more likely to go down offroad. Make sure someone knows your route and ETA.
If you want to write something to share about your challenge and have us post it, just send it in with the documents and we will share it with the world at no extra charge.
So what are you waiting for? You can do this!
The gauge cluster shown here is an 2014 Ultra Classic. A touch over 227,000 miles and a new motor was just installed. Not because it stopped running, but because it was burning a little oil.
If you maintain your bike and don't abuse it, it will last. Most people never ride this much in their life.
How to understand a Biker
SUBMITTED BY A BIKER
When you see us moving past you quickly:
Don’t take offense or think we’re trying to
“show off”. Ninety five percent of the time,
we’re trying to get out of your blind spot or
taking ourselves out of a potential
dangerous situation that has evolved around
us. Distancing ourselves from you does not
mean we want to race, but that we’re giving
ourselves the edge we need at the moment.
When you hear our horn:
Don’t take offense or think we’re trying to
aggravate you. All we’re doing is letting you
know where we are in relation to you on
the road, and we’re more than likely aware
of your inattentiveness to us while you’re
talking on a cell phone, eating, reading or
involved in some other distracting aspect to
your driving. It’s important to us, and you,
that you know we’re there.
When you hear our loud pipes:
Don’t become angry and hostile toward us.
Yes, some are quite loud, but for some,
there’s a purpose behind being loud. It’s
about letting you know we’re close by and
we’re constantly hoping that our investment
in this accessory will help save our lives.
Our pipes are really not about our ego…it’s
a pride and personalization to our form of
When you see us in our clothes:
Don’t become fearful of us or think us
weird. Our leather jackets, chaps, gloves and
boots are the barriers between losing
massive amounts of flesh should something
cause us to go down…nothing more, nothing
less. Safety gear is paramount to our riding.
We wear patches on our jackets, and pins
on our vests. These are symbols of pride
and honor within our group(s), individuals
giving back to those who gave. These things
bind us together as a brotherhood and
sisterhood among bikers. Not that we’re
better than anyone else, but that we have
the same kind of nobility and pride in our
accomplishments as you may have in the
various aspects of your life. I guess one
could say; our patches and pins are the
decals and the bumper stickers of our
involvement with society and the general
public, of which we are very pleased to be a
part of in our own little way.
When you see us in a restaurant:
You don’t have to shield your child or feel
intimidated. We have family, wives,
husbands, children and loved ones too, just
like you. We smile; we laugh and enjoy the
moments we have. We are approachable,
and would befriend you, if given the
When you see us in a parking lot:
Don’t convince yourself that we’re there to
“get you”. More than likely, we just finished
a long ride and are taking a break. Or, we
may be meeting up with other riders for a
charity run for young children, or another
very worthy cause. We may just be admiring
one another’s bikes, sharing our pride with
other brothers and sisters, just like you do
with your personal vehicle.
It’s what we do…it’s a part of our lives, and
we’d be more than welcome to share with
you what riding a bike is all about…if you’d
When you see aggressive riding bikers:
Don’t put us all in the same stereotypical
category as those whose behavior and
actions would cause you to react in disgust
and intolerance. Many of us do not agree
with this style of riding either, and we know
and understand that human nature tends to
blend us all together as the “same group”.
Most of us don’t want that title…and don’t
When you see a group of bikers on the
Give us the courtesy of sharing the road with
you. Please don’t “move in” between several
bikers in formation. This gets us very excited
and nervous, especially when it’s done with
no due regard for our safety.
Provide us with your awareness of the fact
that we are much more vulnerable than you.
We don’t want to challenge you, for all of us
are wise enough to know…we’d lose that
When you are turning left or entering a
Look, then look again…and then one more
time. For we can be easily hidden, and
appear to be invisible by such things as a
telephone pole, another vehicle, bright lights
or the glare of the sun…or possibly, the
beads hanging from your rearview mirror,
among numerous other items that are
displayed there. If you see us flashing our
lights at you or blowing our horn, we’re
only trying to ensure that you will see us
before tragedy changes both our lives.
When you are behind us:
Please give us the room we need and don’t
tailgate us. If you hit us, we’re going down…
HARD! We don’t want to play games with
you, we just want to enjoy the ride and the
fresh air, and experience that which many
of you have never lived for. If we accelerate
away from you, don’t interpret this action as
though we want to drag race you. We’re
only trying to take ourselves out of a bad
situation if you insist on being too close.
When, and if, you experience road rage:
Don’t take it out on us just because we’re
smaller than you and more vulnerable.
Think about what you’re doing and the end
result that may become a reality. The
consequences of your actions and choices
could be very detrimental to our well-being,
our families, our children and our loved
Yes, there are those that can tend to piss you
off, however, rage towards them will not
solve the issues, but accentuate them. Nine
out of ten bikers will do everything they can
to take themselves out of that situation
without causing you or them harm.
When you have an opportunity to talk to us:
You’ll discover, outside any influenced or
stereotypical mindset you may have, that we
are just as human as you are, just with
different interests and toys. Many of us
would give you the shirt off our back if it
would tend to brighten your day or console
you in some way.
We’re really no
different…and we drive cages (cars, trucks and
vans) too. So, meet us and greet us…I think
you’ll be pleasantly surprised that you’ll be
met with open arms.
Thank You for attempting to understand.
