The first Motorcycle Kickstart Classic in 2011 was a huge success. So much so that, in response to the strong demand, we are announcing the next Motorcycle Kickstart Classic in May 2012. Organized by American Iron Magazine, RoadBike magazine and Wheels Through Time, it is a 2-day ride through some of the most stunning roads and mountains in North Carolina.
While the Motorcycle Kickstart Classic celebrates vintage motorcycles, it is open to all makes, models and years of motorcycles. Electric start bikes must ride at the back of the group (to catch and pick up any parts that fell off the older bikes)
The event officially starts with a Welcome Dinner for all registered riders and passengers May 16 at Wheels Through Time museum in Maggie Valley, NC. The next morning we roll out of the museum and ride about 200 miles to finish the first day at Crossroads Harley-Davidson in Wilkesboro, NC for a welcome party and bike show. The registered riders and passengers are invited to a special dinner and discounted hotel rooms near the dealership.
Next morning (May 18) we leave from Crossroads Harley at 9 AM and ride about 85 miles to the AMCA Southern National Rally in Denton, NC for a world class antique swapmeet, bike show and more. The registered Motorcycle Kickstart Classic riders and passengers will have special dedicated parking and are invited to participate in the antique motorcycle parade on Saturday May 19.
This event is limited to the first 100 motorcycles and riders to register.
Registration costs $100 per person (rider or passenger) which includes dinner Wednesday and Thursday nights, an event T-shirt, event stickers, and on the road support vehicles. The Motorcycle Kickstart Classic is a rain or shine event!
The registration form will be available shortly. But if you can’t wait, please send your name, address, email, shirt size and $100 check (to TAM Communications) to American Iron Magazine, ATTN Kickstart Classic, 1010 Summer St., Stamford, CT 06905.
