Rolling Antique Motorcycle Show; Cannonball Run 2012 Stops at National Motorcycle
Museum in Anamosa, Iowa
A Once in a Lifetime Chance!
Here’s a fun once in a lifetime chance. Visit the National Motorcycle Museum on Monday evening September 10 and see over 75 pre-1930 antique motorcycles fresh from 1000 plus miles on the road!
The Cannonball Run 2012 starts in Newburgh, New York and finishes in San Francisco, California. Riders will log over 3500 miles on their way west, and you can stop by the National Motorcycle Museum and check their progress. Watch as riders make adjustments, lubricate and take care of any unexpected mechanical problems. No trailer queens; these bikes made in Europe, England and America are mechanically restored and ready for the long haul. They will be ridden in the ways of the great Erwin “Cannonball” Baker who set the record of 11 days+ in 1914 on his Indian, earning him the nickname.
At the same time you can take in the host site, the National Motorcycle Museum and the new Allstate Motorcycle Quarter MileStones drag racing exhibit and the Then Came Bronson tribute display. And enjoy over 420 great motorcycles from around the world, a vast collection of memorabilia, plus over a thousand pieces of graphic art like posters, paintings and photos, even a Board Track display and a restored 1920′s Gasoline Station. www.nationalmcmuseum.org
Grab some goodies in the gift shop like official Cannonball Run 2012 T-shirts and caps and support the riders including Matt Olsen who will be on the National Motorcycle Museum/John Parham sponsored 1928 Harley-Davidson JD.
