Make sure to keep an eye out for our VJMC club tent when you arrive,and don’t forget to stop on in and say hello !! We should be easy to spot…..just look for the 15 foot tall swooper flags of Kawasaki, Honda ,Yamaha, and Suzuki !!

Yvon & Miguel Duhamel

Riding Into History is proud to announce father and son legendary motorcycle racers Yvon and Miguel Duhamel as the Grand Marshals for our 18th Annual Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance, May 20, 2017 at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida.
This father and son have succeeded in more racing events than most any other motorsports racers.  Yvon has been inducted in the International Snowmobile Racing Hall of Fame, Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame, Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame, and the AMA Hall of Fame.  He has raced in every style of motorcycle racing, from motocross to dirt track, road racing and drag racing.  Yvon even was a world champion snowmobile racer.  Yvon went to work for Kawasaki as one of their factory riders when they were racing the three cylinder two stroke motorcycles and they needed an expert rider to tame these powerful machines.  Yvon did just that with Kawasaki’s first AMA national victory at Talladega in 1971.

Miguel just joined his father in both the AMA Hall of Fame and the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame.  Miguel was the first Canadian to win an AMA Superbike title and won 23 AMA Superbike races during his career.  He is tied for the most wins (5) of the Daytona 200.  Miguel also won 5 Supersport championships and still holds the wins record with 40. While best known for his Honda rides, Miguel also raced the ill-fated Harley Davidson VR1000, as well as MotoGP on the Italian Cagtiva.

Riding Into History is honored to have this historical father and son team as our Grand Marshals for 2017.  It is sure to be a fun event this year with them both!

Bull City Rumble 13
Sep 1 – Sep 2 all-day
Bull City Rumble 13

September 1-2, 2017

The Bull City Rumble is a world-renowned vintage motorcycle and scooter rally hosted by Ton Up NC annually on Labor Day Weekend in Durham, NC. Thematically, the event has its roots in the traditional rivalry of Mods vs. Rockers, the sensationalized clash of two youth cultures- scooter riding mods and motorcycle riding rockers, in 1960’s England. The event has evolved from its humble beginnings in a parking lot in 2005 to a multi-venue, multi-day rally drawing thousands of enthusiasts from all over the world.

The hosts, Ton Up NC, are a small not for profit group of enthusiasts with a singular goal: to promote the riding, restoration and racing of vintage motorcycles. 2017 marks Ton Up NC’s 14th anniversary as an organization and marks the 13th edition of the Bull City Rumble. When not organizing events, the members of Ton Up NC compete nationally in vintage dirt and road motorcycle racing.

On Labor Day weekend, 2017 (Sept. 1-2), downtown Durham will again be filled with the sights and sounds of vintage scooters, motorcycles and enthusiasts from all four corners of the globe. The historic Lucky Strike Tobacco Warehouses in Durham’s Brightleaf District serves as the backdrop for the annual bike show on Saturday, September 3 where judges are not necessarily looking for the prettiest and cleanest machines but who are looking for well ridden bikes with personality and craftsmanship.

Make plans to come join us for one of the best two-wheeled events in the South: The Bull City Rumble September 1-2, 2017.
