Hot Bike and Baggers magazines are happy to release event details for the GEICO Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour 2015, Powered by Victory. This year we roll from Spirit Lake, Iowa, kicking the Tour off at the Victory Motorcycle factory on Wednesday, September 9, 2015. From Victory we head west for five days of great riding, parties, shows, music, and more!
Victory Motorcycles is the Tour’s “Powered By” sponsor, hosting the first of our Bike Build-Off people’s choice contests, as well as a general bike show, main stage with live music, plenty of vendors, and more. Additionally, Victory will be offering factory tours so you can see new Victory bikes being built!
“We are excited to be a key part of the Hot Bike Tour and feel it is a perfect match,” General Manager, Victory Motorcycles, Rod Krois says. “At Victory, we are all about the ride, and this event is exactly that—a chance to ride our American V-twin motorcycles across America with a great group of like-minded individuals. We are really looking forward to this!”
On September 10, the Tour rolls into Mitchell, South Dakota. Mitchell is the home of Corn Palace as well as home of Bike Build-Off builder Brian Klock. Klock and crew have surprises aplenty in store for the Mitchell stop! September 11 takes us to Rapid City, South Dakota, followed by Sheridan, Wyoming, and finally Billings, Montana, on Sunday, September 13.
