Motorcycle Enthusiasts to Thunder into Salem/Keizer for Good Vibrations® Rally at Riverfront Park.
Some of the finest bikes in the West ridden by their proud owners will roar into Salem/Keizer for the 3rd Annual Good Vibrations® Motorcycle Rally for three days of biker fun July 15-17, 2012. The event produced by Roadshows®, Inc., is FREE for the public. Registered motorcycle participants pay a modest fee.
“We get some of the most spectacular bikes at our events,” said Roadshows® president Randy Burke, producer of Good Vibrations®. “Our participants love their bikes. They’re proud of them and they like to put them on display. They know other riders can truly appreciate the aftermarket details they’ve added to their bike.”
Good Vibrations® featuring Music, Motorcycles, Malt & Merlot provides an excellent opportunity to check out bikes and talk with their owners.
You’ll have a chance to see the classic rock group, Blue Oyster Cult in concert at the Marion County Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 14 (free to registered participants). Activities for Sunday include a motorcycle parade and a collectors classic car show. For registered participants, there will be two VIP breakfasts, poker runs through the wine country and two VIP parties with food, beverages and live entertainment.
The “headquarters” for Good Vibrations® called “Vendor Village” will be on beautiful green grass at Riverfront Park right on the Willamette River in Salem. Ride-in Shows and Bike Competitions, vendor booths and non-stop entertainment will take place there. Vendor Village is where participants and other motorcycle enthusiasts can purchase all things motorcycle, from helmets, leathers and boots to all types of accessories. It’s also where everyone can listen to live bands and enjoy great food. It’s designed to keep everybody entertained while registered Good Vibrations® motorcycle participants come and go throughout the three day event. Vendor Village will be open Friday through Sunday.
The City of Keizer and Salem Harley-Davidson are presenting sponsors for the event.
A portion of the proceeds from Good Vibrations® 2011 will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Association and the Christian Motorcycle Association.
