Vintage Motorcycle Kickstart Classic Ride May 15 & 16 2013

The details have been finalized for American Iron Magazine’s next Motorcycle Kickstart Classic ride and we hope you can join us this year. This 2-day ride is open to all makes, models and years of motorcycles. The kicker-only motorcycles ride up front, and the electric-start ones in the back, to pick up the parts that fall off the old ones.

This year’s ride starts with a sponsored welcome dinner at Low Country Harley-Davidson in Charleston, SC late afternoon and evening of May 14, 2013. We leave the morning of May 15, from Low Country Harley-Davidson. We plan to stop for lunch at Savannah Harley-Davidson, and then push on to Golden Isles Harley-Davidson for a welcome Bike Night dinner in Brunswick, GA.

On May 16th we depart from Golden Isles H-D and ride to Jacksonville, FL for a sponsored lunch at Adamec Harley-Davidson (at Regency).  After lunch we ride to St. Augustine, FL for the end of our ride the day before the Riding Into History events start.

All Motorcycle Kickstart Classic riders are invited to be part of the world class Riding Into History motorcycle events and show. Among the highlights for this year’s Riding Into History will be a special display of Motorcycle Cannonball motorcycles, and the Grand Marshalls are Dale Walksler of Wheels Through Time and Buzz Kanter of American Iron Magazine. Dale and Buzz will be leading the Motorcycle Kickstart Classic ride.
