Cycle World Rolling Concours at Indianapolis Motor Speedway This Friday

If you love classic motorcycles, and in particular the kind that run down the road as in days of yore,  the Cycle World Rolling Concours this weekend at the 2011 Red Bull Indianapolis GP on Friday August 26th, 2011 is the place to be.

Billed as “your chance to prove that your vintage machine runs as well as it looks,” the Rolling Concours is open to pre-1986 motorcycles.

Entrant’s vintage motorcycles will be  judged  based on form and function, and the team at Cycle World will take care of that test by leading  a ride of approximately 50 miles in the area surrounding Indianapolis.

Expect a stop for lunch and to then head on to the judging at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Want to make the scene with your classic? First and foremost, your machine has to complete the entire ride.
