2010 Indian Motorcycle Rally

The 2010 Indian Motorcycle Rally takes place July 17, 2010 10 AM – 4 PM at Hilltop Farm, 1608 Mapleton Ave., Rte 159, Suffield CT (1/2 mile south of MA line and Six Flags New England.)

See dozens of vintage Indians, plus the NEW Indians from Kings Mountain, NC, along with lots of food, vendors and entertainment.

Event Donation: Bikes $20 and Cars $25.

Hilltop Farm was built by George Hendee, co-creator of the Indian motorcycle and founder of Hendee Manufacturing Co., later renamed Indian Motorcycle Co., in nearby Springfield, Mass.

Between 1913 and 1925, George bought up 500 acres of farmland in Suffield, Conn., where he established a gentleman’s country estate including a 20,000 sq. ft. Colonial Revival dairy barn. In 1915, George retired to the farm and raised white leghorn chickens and prize-winning Guernsey cows.

A volunteer nonprofit organization formed in 2002, that is dedicated to preserving the barn, rehabilitating the property and creating a learning center where people can reconnect to the land.

The Indian Motorcycle Rally is one of the fundraisers held each year to raise money for this effort.

Classic Motorcycle Event May 15 & 16 Florida

Who says you can’t blend high quality art, commercial graphics, stunning classic motorcycles and barely clothed fantasy women?

If you feel this is impossible in these PC days we live in today please don’t tell artist and all around motorcycle guy Don Bradley.

Cyclone motorcycle art & sexy lady rider

In addition to all the many years he spent doing commercial design and illustration, Don is also the creative genius behind the stunning designs every year for the popular Riding Into History charity motorcycle event held every year in northern Florida. This year the event will be May 15 & 16, 2010.

According to Don Bradley’s web site:

The “Cyclone” was a very advanced 45 degree V-twin motorcycle created by the Joerns Motor Manufacturing company of St. Paul, Minnesota from 1913 to 1916.

The Cyclone was capable of out-running Harley, Indian, Excelsior and all of the other race bikes of the day. In 1914 one was officially timed at 111 mph. But like its deadly namesake, the Cyclone was not very predictable (reliable) and consequently did not finish many of its races.

As the Joerns Manufacturing Company was plagued with under-funding along with low volume they were not able to give proper development to this machine so the Cyclone faded into history.
