When the High Seas Rally sails the Caribbean in October, the World’s Only Motorcycle Rally on a Cruise Ship will be powered by the unrivaled action and expertise of Cycle Source Magazine.
The action starts before we board the Mariner of the Seas. The Pre-Cruise Party in Port Canaveral will feature Mini-Bike Races with trophies and cash prizes on the line. Once on board, we're throwing a Virtual Bike Show with more killer prizes up for grabs. We'll also host live Grease & Gears Garage tutorials every day at sea with HSR Host and Custom Bike Builder Xavier Muriel and Cycle Source Founder, Owner, and Editor-In-Chief Chris Callen.
Grease & Gears Garage
Cycle Source’s Grease & Gears Garage came to life in Sturgis by bringing together top industry artisans and builders, outfitting a stage as if it were a real-deal shop, fitting them with headsets and letting the crowd watch and interact as the crew gets to work. For over four years, the Grease & Gears crew has taken the action to major rallies across the country, exhibiting interactive motorcycle entertainment and education.
Who can forget watching Paul Yaffe customize a bagger then light the tire on fire right on stage when it was finished? Other industry titans like John Shope, Pat Patterson of Led Sled Customs and Bert Baker of Baker Drivetrain have had cameos on the G&G Garage Stage.
That all sets the stage for the High Seas Rally in October, when you’ll have a front row seat to watch Xavier Muriel and Chris Callen bring that level of information and entertainment to the high seas. In Grease & Gears Garage at Sea, they will cover maintenance, oil changes, winterization, brake adjustment, fabricating handlebars, a sissy bar, and much more. That's right, full-on demos in a full shop at sea.
It wouldn’t be the ultimate rally without a little racing, would it? We can’t ride on board, but we can fire up Mini-Bikes for races before we board! At the High Seas Rally's Pre-Cruise Party in Port Canaveral, you’re gonna be able to drag race Mini-Bikes!
The Cycle Source crew will be bringing a fleet of Mini-Bikes, along with their professional drag starting tree, for you to put your need for speed to the test! The champs will go home with cool custom trophies, some great loot and bragging rights for a year! There is no entry fee to ride, but the crew does ask that you make a minimum $10 donation, 100% of which goes directly to the High Seas Rally's Dialysis Fund. Head-to-head racing without the need for a full race suit. It makes for great fun and awesome memories.

Cycle Source will print cool posters to display on the High Seas Rally throughout the adventure and you’ll get to keep the poster after the cruise. Finally, Cycle Source Editor-In-Chief Chris Callen will judge and award trophies to 25 or more classes.
To top it off, we’re going to share your bikes with the world. A People’s Choice Award will be chosen by rally-goers and fans from around the world! The Best In Show will win a full feature in the pages of Cycle Source Magazine along with a bunch of other great prizes!
The High Seas Rally is packing more grease, more gears and more motorcycle eye candy into our weeklong rally at sea. To create the ultimate immersive experience for all levels of bikers, riders and gear heads, we’ll be cruising with several awesome custom bike builders who will host talks, show off their work around the ship and spark some exciting new entertainment on the cruise.
From joining Chris Callen’s Grease and Gears Garage demos to hosting their own gear head panels, HSR’s new crew of Custom Bike Builders will be an amazing addition to the World's Only Motorcycle Rally on a Cruise Ship. Meet the builders:
