PILOTWe actively recruit licensed, insured, and experienced motorcycle operators to serve as PILOTs (motorcycle drivers) for our event. Two-up experience is required. Your motorcycle must be a minimum of 750cc, it must be properly equipped to carry a passenger, and we require that your motorcycle undergoes and passes a pre-ride safety inspection. Your bike may be a two-wheeler, a trike, a sidecar rig, or CanAm/Spyder style. Our PILOTs are patriotic, enthusiastic, and caring individuals; veterans and non-veterans alike. On event day, volunteer PILOTs serve as the drivers and escorts for our blind, visually impaired and disabled veteran passengers and their guest (TAILGUNNERs). For the safety, comfort, and enjoyment of our TAILGUNNERs strict adherence to THE VIPER RIDE™ rules must be followed.

If you are interested in being a PILOT, please submit a PILOT Application.
