Fans of classic bikes have probably had June 8 and 9 circled on their calendars for some time. That's the weekend when Vintage Rally 2013, the annual celebration of the tradition of motorcycles and motorsports, returns to the U.S. for the third time.
The National Motorcycle Museum is hosting the event in Anamosa, Iowa, this summer, and fans of the classic machines can enjoy all of the perks that come along with this festival. This is the first year the rally will be held in its new location, as the National Motorcycle Museum recently changed venues to accommodate more than 400 classic bikes and numerous other displays.
A bike show will take up most of the first day of the rally, and about 40 awards are set to be given out for the best restored bikes and original machines. Everything from street bikes to scooters will be recognized, so motorists who ride any kind of machine can find something to enjoy and support during the festivities.
Also on the schedule for the weekend are a swap meet, a vintage ride and some motorcycle gear giveaways.
