The free Swap Meet on Saturday & Sunday gets bigger and better every year. Clean out your spares, find what you need to fix your bike or buy another one!
Sunday is the official Antique Bikes on Main event, when main street literally fills with vintage bikes of all makes and models. Not everyone rides a Harley. Come look for the Norton 750 Commando, Honda 400 Four, Ducati 250 Mach 1, Benelli Riverside, Hodaka Combat Wombat or whatever YOU used to ride. Maybe you still have that old Panhead or 750-4 Chopper. Bring it out. It doesn't matter if it is a perfect restoration or a flogged, worn out "great old bike" that needs everything. Gasoline Alley hosts all varieties of race bikes on Sunday, with legendary tuners and racers mixing in the crowd at past years. Any race bike is welcome- dusty, dirty, running or not, from a dirt bike to a two stroke drag bike to an AHRMA or AMA roadracing bike. Somebody will love to see it and share stories that usually start with, "I remember the time when I...." As always, it's all free for attendees and participants- NO admission, registration or fees to participate with your bike or bikes. Just bring it out, park it and have a great time.
It's motorcycle parking only on Main Street, especially on Sunday with designated areas welcoming motorcycles of specific vintages. If you come on four wheels, with or without a trailer, there's plenty of parking on the side streets around back.

The Carolinas BMW Motorcycle Owners Association invites you to join us again for the Annual Boone Rally. Did you know this rally is unlike many other motorcycle rallies?
Held at the KOA Camground in Boone, NC motorcycle riders from as far away as California and Canada have enjoyed the best riding anywhere. Rain or shine ride NC’s Blue Ridge Parkway and High Country, Southwestern Virginia and Northeastern Tennessee. Dust off that classic/vintage motorcycle and ride in. We have plenty of room for everyone and all brands!
This rally is unique in that three states are your riding playground – Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia. West Virginia and Kentucky are a stretch but possible.
August 9th arrival – $60 per person (includes extra night camping, hot dog dinner on Thursday and all other rally activities). August 10/11th arrival – $50 per person (includes all rally activities).

Billed as Europe's largest vintage vehicle market and technical show, the first one was in 1975. Due to the popularity of the event, there are two Veterama events - now March and October. These events have saved countless vintage and antique vehicles from being lost; the availability of parts and knowledge breathes new life into many historical vehicles.
Hours are 8:30a-6:00p on Saturday and 8:30a-4:00p on Sunday. Tickets start at 12 euros per day with reduced rates for multiple days. Parking is available.
