Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Over 80 riders turned out with their classic bikes for the return of the Cycle World Rolling Concours at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP on Saturday, August 18.
We’re firm believers that motorcycles, even rare collector machines, were meant to be ridden. That’s why this concours rolls. The ride left from the Speedway and headed to a private lunch spot for socializing and tire-kicking, then returned to the track where the bikes were judged. Only those motorcycles that completed the ride were eligible for trophies (and prizes from event-sponsor Bike Bandit). Judges included Editor-at-Large Peter Egan and yours truly. The show was open to any motorcycle that runs, dirty or clean, stock or not, as long as it is 1986 or older.
Here are the riders and machines that took home trophies for 2012:
