Bikes will be judged King of the Hill style. Two bikes battle, Best Sounding Bike stays until all have

played. Playing order will be randomly drawn. So you should have a playlist of a ton of songs because

you never know how many times you will have to battle. Make sure your battery is charged.

If you arrive after the bikes have been randomly drawn, but the contest has not started and you still want to compete,

you automatically go first.

Must arrive 1 hour prior to contest start time.
All bikes must be ridden in to the arena unless location does not allow riding inside of indoor arena.

There will be up to 6 classes judged depending on how many bikes of each class sign up. There will be a winner from each class.

Competitors that choose to can move up a class but can not disconnect speakers to move down a class. If the speaker is on the bike it counts, whether it’s hooked up or not.

Please make sure you have your phone on airplane mode so we dont get really loud phone ringing in the middle of your turn

Only adjustments that can be made during your time is volume and bass knob

Be ready to go. Have your song selection ready. Have your phone ready.

Contestants will each have one 90 second round to show what you got. Judges, at their discretion, may decide that they want to hear some bikes again to determine winner of each round.

Tour Pack speakers are allowed and will count towards speaker count.

Compression Drivers, Midrange, Mid Bass and Subwoofers are all counted as speakers

Small Tweeters or horns like ST25, ST35,  etc... do not count as speakers

Coaxial speakers with horns or tweeters will count as one speaker.

Two Wheel Motorcycles only.

Helpful hints

Song Selection is huge. If you are being graded on Highs, Mids and Lows, but the song you play doesn't have any of one of those frequencies? then you will get a low score. Not all songs are created equal. Choose wisely
It doesn't matter if you play one song for 90 seconds or 9 songs for 10 seconds each. That is totally up to you. However, some songs highlight highs while others highlight your lows.
A couple of different songs showing the best of your system would be my suggestion. Please understand that while you can play what you want, playing a techno or instrumental song
with no vocals will not score you as high as a song that has vocals. Judges know which songs are harder to get perfect and will reward the bikes that take
a chance on the harder songs.
It is not about playing your favorite song, it is about playing what song or songs make your system sound great. This takes time and practice to figure it out.

The vehicle must start and pull out of the competition area or be disqualified.

Any problems, questions, or concerns should be directed to Cory Ellerbee (707) 690-8321
