2010 New Ulm Rally

Motorcycle Classics readers in and around south central Texas should point their bikes this weekend to New Ulm, Texas, for the 26th Annual British and European Motorcycle Rally, May 14-16. Hosted by the British Motorcycle Owners Assoc. of Houston, the three-day rally has grown into one of the biggest vintage events in the state, as thousands of classic bike fans converge on the small town of New Ulm, just west of Houston.

Always held the weekend after Mother’s Day, the three-day event is much more than a show, harkening back to the old days of motorcycle gatherings with field events including grass drags, balancing contests (ever try to ride your Bonneville the length of a 2 x 4? It ain’t easy!), barrel rolling and ring tossing, among others. There are plenty of vendors on hand and an active swap meet, and the rally ends on Sunday with the club’s annual show and awards presentation.

Expect lots of eye candy, with truckloads of Nortons andTriumphs on hand (the club is affiliated with the Triumph International Owners Club and the International Norton Owners Assoc.), plus BSAs, BMWs, Vincents, Ducatis and just about every other great European bike you can imagine likely to show up. Motorcycle Classics regular contributor and Texas resident Corey Levenson will be taking in the show, so look forward to a follow up report on the rally in a future issue of Motorcycle Classics. — Richard Backus
