The Southern California Motorcycling Association has been serving the long distance riding community since 1968. That's what it says on their website, and when you look at the rides they host, its very obvious that this association is made up of hard core riders!
This year, their 44th annual Three Flags Classic brings them to beautiful Vernon BC. For those who have never ridden in the Okanagan region of BC, you really don't know what you are missing! The lakes, the orchards, wineries and curvy roads make it truly lovely.

The Southern California Motorcycling Association is also the proud host of the USA Four Corners Tour which covers 7,000 miles in 21 days and the USA Four Corners TRUE X Tour.

 The True X  sounds like an interesting tour. The geographical center of the USA is Lebanon Kansas. So the idea is to ride in from one corner of the US to Lebanon, then to another corner and back to Lebanon and so on until you have ridden in an X shape across the US. You are given 26 days to do that tour!

All of the tours the the SCMA have created are designed to get you on your motorcycle and seeing things you might not otherwise see and challenging yourself to get out of your comfort zone. 
Not unlike the Iron Butt challenges, if you register to do these rides you get swag bags at the beginning and a finishers kit that must be filled out and sent in. After you have verified doing the trip in the prescribed amount of time you get recognition for having ridden that tour.

If long distance riding is your thing, then check out the Southern California Motorcycle Association! And if you have never been to the beautiful Okanagan of British Columbia, I encourage you to put it on your bucket list!  If you do decide to head up this way, check out the gang at the Okanagan Motorcycle Riders Association, they are great hosts and love showing of their region!

If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
