Ride to Rockerbox -- June 6th
from John Zolot--
I will be leading a ride to the Rockerbox vintage bike event at Road America on Saturday, June 6th. This is a motorcycle show with all types and makes. There are awards given in multiple categories.
Here is a description from the event webpage (www.rockerbox.us): “Rockerbox is the premier Wisconsin motorcycle show featuring an eclectic mix of Euro, Japanese and American vintage café racers, choppers, sport bikes, racing machines, super motos, scooters, and sidecars. All makes and models of bikes are welcome; you’ll find a mash of bikes competing for space alongside dealers and vendors of all things motorcycling. The weekend-long festival centers around a ride-in bike show and competition; entering riders from all over the country in over several competitive award classes to showcase the greatest in classic style, fresh customization and all that which is unusual and incredible. Meanwhile, the Road America paddock will be packed with local and national vendors, live music, food, and beer.”
Simultaneously, Road America hosts the AHRMA vintage motorcycle races. This event truly offers something for everyone interested in motorcycling. I will leave from the Full Moon Restaurant at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 6th. In the interest of time, I’ll follow a direct route. I usually take a more scenic route going home, passing through the Kettle Moraine woods. Full Moon is at 1300 Skokie Hwy, Lake Bluff, IL 60044. Many of us are familiar with the location due to their Sunday morning gatherings. Please note that there is an admission fee; website indicates $30 for the day or $40 with the bike show. Hope to see you there!
