Rules & Registration

  • Ride Safe. Be Alert. Wear appropriate gear.  This is a self-guided tour.  Some of the destinations may be on little used roads with the possibility of wildlife, gravel, potholes, or whatever. Be Cautious. You are responsible for riding within your limits and the tour assumes no responsibility for your safety.
  • “It’s not the destination, it’s the RIDE”.  Locations were picked because many are on great roads.  Enjoy yourself!
  • Ride your motorcycle to the location provided and take a picture of the object described in the destination list with your motorcycle and provided rally flag in the picture. The locations will be picked to limit/eliminate confusion. Your picture does not have to be a perfect match to any provided sample image, but it should include enough of the object described in the location guide to show that you are at the correct location.
  • (Updated 3/9/22) E-mail your submission to the tour when convenient. The picture does not have to be sent from the location. Please include the location code in the subject line of the e-mail. For example, your e-mail subject line should be something like “GT01 Rider 001”.
    • Send the picture from the email account you registered with to .
    • The location code (e.g. “GT01”) must be the first four characters listed in the subject line.
    • Don’t send submissions for other riders from your email address to the “scoring” address.
    • You should receive a confirmation when your submission is scored.
    • You can also send other pictures from your ride along the way if you like. Just use the code “PP” (Personal Picture) in the subject line.
    • If you choose to opt out of the scoring system, you can send your submission the old way (email it to pnwgrandtour@gmail.com). It may take longer to get scored.
  • Final decisions about whether you made it to the correct location are made by the tour. We intend to be liberal in our approach to scoring to keep it enjoyable for everyone. Please do not take advantage of this approach by deciding to take a picture of something other then the object described in the guide. You will not receive credit for your visit unless the object described by the guide is in the picture.
  • Your rally flag must be in every submitted picture. If you lose your flag, let us know. We will send you a pdf document that you can print out and use for future submissions. If you forget your flag, go back and get it. A forgotten flag is not a lost flag!
  • Reach finisher status by successfully visiting all 8 locations in Washington, Oregon or Idaho, or by visiting at least 12 locations in any combination of states.
