•  Points of attention and agreement  • 

  • You can not participate in the Springer Rally with a motor other than the one you registered with. No exceptions.
  • Every participant is expected to take care of a well-maintained motorcycle. Do the necessary preparations and nourishment.
  • Make sure that you arrive on time and fully refueled at the starting point. You can tank at the Shell station at Koningsweg 6 in Garderen.
  • With safety in mind, we ride in staggered formation (also named: ‘brick formation‘, see link) unless the road is too narrow. With narrow roads, participants drive safely at a distance. Within the group you will keep your own line.
  • Each participant is at all times at his / her own accountability and risk and should feel responsible for the other participants.
  • The driving style is such that calmness stays in the group.
  • Driving in a group requires continuous concentration and attention to each other.
  • The HSON and WestCord Hotel can not be held liable for any damage, loss or theft. In addition, always lock your motorcycle to a chain.
