The last several months have been a lil’ crazy for most. Lock downs. Event Cancellations. Conspiracy Theories. Layoffs. Unemployment. It’s time to get back on Two Wheels! But where to go? Well, from where we sit, you only have two options. Unfortunately, neither are in Texas but both are literally just a few hours away from the NE Border of Texas. So, make your plans and join up with your fellow Indian Motorcycle Brothers and Sisters this summer!
Iron Indian Riders Reunion. This is an annual event that draws in approximately 100 bikes a year, at revolving locations each year. Last year was in the Texas Hill Country. Three previous years, Durango, CO. This year; Arkansas! Bikes that show up are mostly the new Spirit Lake models (’14 to present day) but usually a few Gilroys and Kings Mountains roll in. This year’s will be held in Russellville, Arkansas in the center of some of the best riding in the country. Though most participants belong to the IIRA and own Indian Motorcycles, all Indian Riders are welcomed. In fact, all bikes are though rarely are there more than a few other brands than Indian. The IIRA’s motto has always been “For the Riders by the Riders.” More info can be found on the FB Event here : https://www.facebook.com/events/466662800772669/
Indian Rally on Indian Point (IRIP). This is an annual event that originally was based around the Iron Indian Riders for their annual get together, but over the last several years become more of an Indian Owners Association (IOA) focused event. Still, all Indian Riders and others are welcome. Located around Branson, Missouri the riding is also awesome in this area. It was supposed to happen this month of May but has been rescheduled a few months later, in the third week of August.
