Next May’s 19th annual Riding Into History Concours d’Elegance will feature competition motorcycles. Of all the varied forms of motorcycle racing, flat track is uniquely American. Over a century ago, the first races were held at horse tracks, they still are today. The races remain remarkably similar, as do the motorcycles, stripped down, no nonsense, bare minimalistic and brutal in appearance and performance. Absolute purity of purpose.
In keeping with our focus on flat track, Riding Into History will have two of the greatest legends of the sport serving as joint Grand Marshals. Who are they? Think about the most iconic flat track machine of all time. Now consider the men most associated with it. Got it? No? Worry not, all will be revealed in the new year.
Happy Holidays from the RIH gang!
