Announcing the 2012 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
Inscription on the base of the Statue of Liberty

As Americans we hold that Liberty is a moral and political right in which human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions.

The Romans held that Liberty is a goddess who guides the hearts of men and inspires them to courage and hope for the future; she secures their freedom and fights with them to protect her blessings. She celebrates the victory of men and women over the limitations of their own life and allows them to break the chains that hold them.

The primary tenants of the Declaration of Independence are "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..." As such, we recognize that there are no entitlements - the world doesn't owe us anything and we have to work, sweat and scrape to get what we want and need.

That we have gotten ourselves to this place in the world is no accident. We have had the freedom to choose how we live our lives. Now, will you choose the safety and security of your easy chair? Or will you join us this August 5th, 2012 when we embark on the 3rd annual Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge?

This year's event will begin in Las Vegas, NV and travel LESS THAN 6,000 miles to end in New York, NY. Hoka Hey 2012 will take riders along some of the most scenic roads in the lower 48 United States.

Keep an eye on our website ( for more information and applications.

The question now is...
What will you do with the choices that are before you?


  1. Wahooo start planning now.... get your gear and lets ride!!! Hoka Hey

  2. Too bad it is limited to Harleys. A Cross Country Tour straight out of the Victory factory in Iowa would spank this Challenge. Time to open up to other makes, maybe restrict to American made for a few years before allowing the hardcore BMW guys in.

  3. So beautiful description about statue of liberty, And I am so exciting to watch this long competition.

  4. is there a schedule for rules changes before, during, and after the event?

  5. what was the oldest age rider last year to finish?

  6. Our oldest rider to finish the entire route in 2011 was 67 years old. We had older riders make it to Nova Scotia but for one reason or another, they had to veer off route along the way.

    There is no schedule for rule changes. If they become necessary, they are implemented as quickly as feasible.

    Thanks for posting! Beth

  7. Viva Las Vegas. Hoka Hey!!!!

  8. How many riders started from Mesa,AZ and if possible by gender and age groups and the number of each who finished. Waiting on info for 2012 so I can get plans made.
