GET YOUR MOTOR RUNNIN’!
It is unbelievable how fast this year is going by. But man, there’s some cool stuff on the way down the pipe. We are getting closer and closer to July 24. What’s going on July 24 you may ask? Well, it’s going to be the Great American Motofest in Plant City. This event has been groomed to be one hell of a premiere event that you are not gonna wanna miss.
This is one of those motorcycle events that doesn’t come around often. There’s a little bit of everything for everybody. But I think the thing that’s going to be the most unique about it is Motorfest will be bringing back the motorcycle rodeo. That’s right, people doing rodeo events on two wheels. The best part about this entire deal is that anyone can participate. This isn’t like one of those “pro” events where you go in and just watch. At Motofest, you get to actually get on your sled and ride in the biker rodeo games.
If you know one of those guys or gals that sit around and say how great they can ride and how they can out-ride anybody that they know, this is the time to put it all on the table. Tell them to put their money where their mouth is. And if the excuse is, “I can’t go because I have nobody to watch the kids.” Well, surprise. There’s going to be things for the kids to do as well as couples’ events. This isn’t an adult only event, this is a “bring the whole family” event. I guess you could say it’s almost like going to a carnival but you get to be the main attraction.
There’s gonna be barrel racing, sled pulls, slow races and way more on the list. Every brand, make and model of motorcycle is encouraged to participate This is not a single manufacturer event. How cool is that? I’m sure everybody who has ridden for a long time is familiar with the old magazine rodeos from the past. Well, some of those events are going to be at The Great American Motofest as well. Not only do you get to participate, but who knows, being a part of Motofest might even make your famous. It’s my understanding that Born To Ride will be doing live videotaping as well as various news agency coverage during this event. I’m really hoping that there’s going to be a good attendance at this event because they don’t come around very often and it would be nice to do this annually. And as we know, the only way things become an annual thing is my having people showing up and showing that they want these type of events around. This is a great time to socialize as well as stylize. If you want to be seen, this is the place to do it.
So for those who haven’t realized the obvious, ladies, there will be plenty of men there. And gentlemen, there will be plenty of ladies there. That’s not to mention all of the motorcycles, rat rods, vans and live entertainment that’s going to be wrapped up in one place all at once. I know that usually my articles are a little more edgy, but I’m really excited about this event and I think you should be as well. I’m hoping to see a lot of you out there and hope to see a lot of you participate in these games of skill.
So with that being said, y’all be safe, get those bikes ready, charge those camera phones and get ready to wear some of the rubber off of those tires. This thing’s going to be a friggin’ blast. Start practicing and Let the Games Begin!! Until we see each other again.
