The Rally bike show is hosted by Indianapolis, Indiana member Greg Pitt. He never fails to add a unique flavor to Rally bike shows. This year he has assembled a combined team of local members and a couple of… well I won’t spoil his surprise. You will just have to come to the Rally to see what Greg has in store this year. In addition to the traditional bike classes this year we are adding two new classes; vintage café racers and modern classics. The modern classics are those Japanese motorcycles who have not yet reached an age maturity to be classified as vintage. Since so many of new and prospective new members have these under aged classics. We want to extend an opportunity to them to participate in one of the most amazing VJMC bike shows of the year. Please be sure to welcome these newcomers and encourage their participation in all our activities.

No VJMC event would be complete without its social activities. On Thursday evening we will have our traditional welcoming Meet & Greet. This year we will deviate from our Club legacy of a “cook out” and treat our members to an Italian affair.

Nothing brings people together better than a good ol’ fashion BBQ. Friday evening will not disappoint you. So..., Just Image, you are sitting on the veranda of a rustic Inn with an ice cold drink in one hand the other a plate full of BBQ. The evening will continue as we move to the back deck of the hotel to enjoy the stars, libations and the camaraderie of the evening. I sure everyone knows Jim Townsend “Father VJMC”. Well no VJMC Rally is complete without a story telling session led by “Father VJMC” himself. This year will be no exception!
