Rockerbox Motofest at Road America

In case you haven’t heard, Milwaukee’s Rockerbox Motofest is moving to Road America as part of Road America’s AHRMA Vintage Motorcycle Classic. The addition of Rockerbox should mean a big uptick in activity at the June 6-8, 2014 Road America event, as vintage customs and vintage stockers share in one of the great classic bike events of the summer, and Motorcycle Classics will be there – as we have every year since the first Vintage Motorcycle Classic in 2010.

Motorcycle Classics hosted the annual Motorcycle Classics Road America Ride & Show from 2010-2013, and this year it becomes the Rockerbox Bike Show, a ride-in show with trophies awarded in seven classes plus a special Motorcycle Classics Editors’ Choice award. The annual ride continues, with ride master Dennis Weinhold planning a Saturday Dinner Ride for vintage bike fans. We’re waiting for final details on the ride, so come hungry and check in at the Motorcycle Classics tent at the Rockerbox Motofest for more details.

New this year will be the Smage Bros Stunt Show Saturday and Sunday, a Burnout Pit on Saturday, live music from Caught in the Act, and a micro brew tasting on Saturday. Laps of the Road America circuit on your own bike will be available on Saturday, and swap meet vendors will return to the Midway Saturday and Sunday. Vintage road racing remains the core attraction, with rounds 9 and 10 of the AHRMA/CPL Systems National Historic Cup Roadrace Series.

We can’t stress enough what a great event this is. The Road America track is easily one of the most beautiful in America, and with the addition of Rockerbox Motofest we expect to see record turnout for the three-day event at the historic Road America race track. – Richard Backus

Its a bummer we wont have rocker box in the old school neighborhood center street of Milwaukee any longer. Doubtful it will draw as many from the milvin and chivin as the original down to earth event. Road america is too remote to draw last min participants and locals with bikes they don't want to trailer or ride long distances. Bummer.

This is disappointing. Milwaukee is a very underrated town and part of the appeal was a city based event. Also, the VMC always conflicts with the Gilmore Classis MC show outside Kalamazoo. With an August Rockerbox I was always able to hit 3 great upper midwest shows, Gilmore or VMC, Chicago Mods vs Rockers, and Rockerbox.
