J&P Cycles Iowa Rally Rides Onto the Motorcycle Calendar

The announcements of motorcycle events for the summer of 2017 should have bikers thinking about road trips and rallies. The latest news certainly puts Iowa on the list.

Officially called the J&P Cycles Iowa Rally, the event celebrates its 38th anniversary by becoming the site of Hot Bike Magazine's National Garage Build-Off for custom motorcycles. Add to this the rally will transform J&P Cycles' Anamosa, Iowa location to the largest motorcycle aftermarket store in the world during the event, the weekend of June 24-25, 2017.

Located at J&P Cycles' original store, the free rally includes motocross stunt shows from Cowboy Kenny's Steel Rodeo Tour, live music throughout the weekend, food, beer and opportunities to support Camp Courageous, a camp for kids and adults with disabilities.

In conjunction with the rally, the National Motorcycle Museum is opening a new exhibit, Dirt Riding in America. Located near the rally in Anamosa, visitors will be among the first to experience the exhibit and will see more than 450 vintage bikes on display in the museum's permanent collection.

The Iowa Rally gives attendees the opportunity to get up-close and personal with representatives from more than 50 companies offering motorcycling products. It's a chance to see the newest motorcycle accessories, and ask questions to experts from companies like Vance & Hines, Kuryakyn, Dunlop, Klock Werks, Metzler, Mustang Seats, Rinehart Racing and many more.  Riders can even have selected parts installed on their bikes on site.

Then there is the custom bike build-off. The competition is expected to draw the nation's top garage-built custom bikes competing for $3000 and an invitation to the annual Hot Bike Tour, where their motorcycle will go up against famous builders in the Invitational Build-Off.

Located ten minutes from historic Grant Wood Scenic Byway and 45 minutes from the beautiful Great River Road along the Mississippi River, organizers of the J&P Cycles Iowa Rally are highlighting beautiful riding, a national bike show, more than 50 terrific vendors, a premier motorcycle museum, and the largest bike shop in the world.

Additional information about rally activities, travel, and lodging, along with a growing list of vendors, can be found on the rally page online.
