Where has the season gone? Many two-wheeled enthusiasts are startled by that thought while watching the first snow fly. Riding season in the Midwest can seem painfully short at times, but that hasn’t stopped Hupy and Abraham, S.C. from packing the summer with GREAT events!
Check out some of our favorites below, and click here for LIVE footage from these events and more!
Nothing quite brings in spring like the whine of vintage bikes ripping around one of the fastest road racing tracks in the world! The Rockerbox vintage show and AHRMA races are events like no other -- where beautiful machines from ages past are not only displayed, but raced neck and neck at Elkhart Lake Wisconsin’s Road America.
Harley-Davidson Springfield Mile Flat Track Races
Maintaining the racing theme, this one-mile dirt oval located in Springfield, Illinois, is billed the “fastest dirt track in the world.” Races are open to the public and held twice a year, featuring trackside seating, vendors, VIP sections, and of course, the roar of flat track bikes!
BUILD at Iron Horse Bike Night
Not much is better than having a good time while also benefiting the community. Iron Horse’s BUILD Bike Night in Milwaukee is a great way not only to see a beautiful biker venue, but support a motorcycle-centered community program as well.
If you crave the old-time feel of greasers, pinups and good old-fashioned garage rock – Motoblot in Chicago, Illinois, is an event not to miss! The former “Mods vs. Rockers” event is held every summer, and features everything from vendors, bikes and music to a moustache-shaving station!
Tomahawk Ride and Rally
The Milwaukee Rally of Northern Wisconsin – Tomahawk is one annual party not to miss. Held in both Sara Park and downtown Tomahawk, this ride and rally includes food, vendors, a parade, and supports the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Aztalan Motocross Races
One of our favorite events of the season! What could beat high-flying jumps, trackside food and competitive racers ranging from 4 years old to over 40?
Vintage Torque Fest
Benefiting Helping Hannah’s Heart, Vintage Torque is definitely one of Iowa’s wildest and varietal events. Features include everything from show cars and pinups to minibikes and chain races at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds! Vintage Torque and its sister event, Iron Invasion, are definitely ones not to miss.
The Milwaukee Rally
The Milwaukee Rally is a name that almost any Midwest biker will recognize. The Midwest’s equivalent of Sturgis, the Rally encompasses not only the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, but also surrounding dealerships and businesses all over Wisconsin!
Mama Tried Motorcycle Show/Flat Out Friday Races
Mama Tried is quickly gaining national attention as one winter event not to miss. This grass-roots Milwaukee show not only features a plethora of custom bikes and vintage vibes, but also a multiclass indoor flat track race on Friday night.
Brewton Rumble is a ride-in motorcycle street show centered in the heart of Milwaukee at the Historic Pabst Brewery. The streets are lined with bikes, beer, vendors, live music and pinup models – all to benefit the BUILD Moto Mentor program!
