Yes, a rustic road section would count, as it's a state sponsored system of scenic roads.
I would not count multiple rustic road sections as a point each, because the signage, state, and the name stays the same for each section.



For anyone interested, there is an ongoing Wisconsin Rustic Road "hunt" that will get you a sticker and/or a patch for collecting multiple sections.

FYI the ADV link, I still have 70+ Rustic Road Centurion stickers to hand out.
I just wanted to say that even though I signed up, I will not be participating this year. I am not physically capable of riding 8-9 hours round trip in 1 day so I could only accumulate 6 points.

I sincerely hope next years tour has more obtainable targets. I really love doing these tours and I'm going to miss doing this years.

Good luck everyone! Have a great time and ride safe!
Delaware does not seem to sign their Scenic Byways. In looking at Nanticoke Heritage Byway which runs from Seaford to Trap Pond State Park via US 13. At the Delaware site they mention various places to visit such as Woodland Ferry. Would a picture of this location work ???

If there are no byway signs then as long there is an effort shown with pictures to document that you and your bike were on the qualifying road, then you should be good.
Also remember it's OK to use more than one picture to define the road being claimed for a point.
Wow... I like this byway idea... maybe I stand a chance this time... I'll be in Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Utah locally then a trip to Nova Scotia in June... see y'all on the road again

Yes, for your example each state counts as a point.
As long as the signs are differentiated in each state, then the road in each state can count as one point.
Mississippi River Road that you point out is a great example.
In Minnesota the signs say "Great River Road Minnesota, in Iowa: "Great River Road Iowa", etc.

Question on this - If there's no state name in it (such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, that runs through NC and VA) but you can prove an intersection in both states, is it two points or just one?

I have this crazy idea of running the entire BRP in a single day, from South to North. It's possible, but going to be a haul. A little under 500 miles with a 45 mph speed limit, and way too many tourists. It will have to be a weekday to avoid the traffic.

Would only count it as one point if the sign/name stays the same.

That sounds like a great ride!
When will the Rally Placard be emailed?

Planning on the 22nd.

Would like to get as many people signed up to send out a single email blast and should give everyone enough time to get their respective placard printed.
I just emailed out the link to this years placards.
This evening I tried to register for the GT. Norton flagged the site as dangerous. Suggestions?
On chrome I have the option to continue anyway, a clickable link below that warning

Not sure, you'd need to ask the Ridemaster website owner.
I would think there should be an option in any antivirus to white-flag a website or domain as trusted.
I just registered today Windows 10 no flags and it is a safe site. Anytime you click a link from an email it is a risk and some systems will warn you. If you are uncomfortable use the snail mail system. It is very challenging these days for protections systems to know what is safe and what is not.
Now you really have me confused. Am I to assume that Historical Markers will count as a "overlook" as long as it has a dedicated pulloff?

From the rules sheet:

Two scenic overlooks are allowed per state.
The signage must be the descriptive sign at the pull-off site, the brown/green “scenic overlook ahead”
signs that are along the road do not count. Any scenic, historic, or interpretive roadside pull-off is
acceptable, almost all of these have some sort of land-marker describing the location.



As long as it is a dedicated pull-off area with a descriptive landmarker, then it counts.
Glacial Lakes Motorcycle Club regrets to inform everyone, that amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Grand Tour will be postponed indefinitely.

The plan going forward will be to reissue new rider flags and resume the current 2020 Scenic Roads tour at a later date and then continue it through until next year, October of 2021.

Those who have already started the tour will be able to submit their claimed locations, but we ask that all riders put their GT riding on hold until further notice.
Winter gts? That actually sounds fun!
This has me a little confused:
"Those who have already started the tour will be able to submit their claimed locations, but we ask that all riders put their GT riding on hold until further notice."

When the GT restarts, will it be a new theme, rules, and season?

I've got a few on this one, are you saying I can submit them now or wait for the restart? I hope the scenic roads/outlooks will continue, this looked like a lot of fun this year, not to mention I have a cross country trip planned for later this spring that would have been rich with points.

The theme will stay the same.
We decided to continue the same tour through next year, not knowing when it will start up again.
The only thing that will change is the placards, to differentiate them from pre-postponement.

I'll edit the post.
Thanks,
