#35 Jon Dobbs

Boulder Junction, WI

1916 Harley-Davidson J

Jon’s adventure motorcycling started when he left town one day, drove to Alaska, and returned nearly three months and 13,000 miles later.  He says that he doesn’t know how his vintage motorcycle interest turned from an obsession to a disease, but he knows the Motorcycle Cannonball is to blame!  He first rode in 2016 and said that if there was an award for the most inexperienced and unprepared antique motorcycle rider, he certainly would have taken the trophy! After riding in both 2016 and 2018, he proclaimed “Wow, I don’t think I’ll be doing that again!” and in the next breath asked “What’s next?”

He’s planning the next Cannonball adventure on a trusty ol’ girl, a 1916 Harley-Davidson J.

Jon’s other girl, Jaci, continues to be his support before, during, and after each event and they cannot say enough about the camaraderie and generosity of fellow riders, their teams, and the organizers.
