Boardtracker Harley-Davidson in Janesville, Wisconsin, has hosted the MDA Tub Run for 23 years. MDA Tub Rur route map

This year, thousands of motorcyclists riding almost every brand of motorcycle gathered at the Janesville dealership, completely filling the parking lot and two adjacent lots.  Hupy and Abraham, S.C. is proud to support this ride year after year, which benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Southern Wisconsin.

At noon, escorted by Rock County Sheriffs, the long line of bikes made its way onto the road for the start of another scenic tour along emerald shaded county roads, curve filled stretches through farmland and reduced speed visits into small towns. Not having to stop or even put your feet down during this ride is pure rider’s heaven.

There was one half-way stop in the town of Clinton to cool down, get some refreshments and stroll through endless lines of motorcycles packing the entire main street of Clinton.

Each year it seems this event gets bigger and what’s nice is the proceeds stay right in Wisconsin to benefit research and to help with the various services MDA provides like summer camp. Thank you Boardtracker Harley-Davidson for this great event. Thanks to the dozens and dozens of volunteers who were at every turn along the route. Thanks to the escort provided by the Rock County Sheriff’s Department. And thank you for asking EMS Roaddocs to provide medical support again this year. It was an honor and privilege to be a part of this all.
