Bike Show Entry Fees:  First Bike $10 – Each additional Bike is $5

The Rally bike show will be hosted by Tallahassee member Steve Gauding and will take place inside the Silver Springs State Park. This will add a unique flavor to our Rally bike show. This year a team combined of local members and a couple of… well I won’t spoil the surprise. You will just have to come to the Rally to see what we have in store this year. In addition to the traditional bike classes this year we are adding two new classes; vintage café racers and modern classics. The modern classics are those Japanese motorcycles who have not yet reached an age of maturity to be classified as vintage. Since so many of new and prospective new members have these under aged classics.  We want to extend an opportunity to them to participate in one of the most amazing VJMC bike shows in Florida. Please be sure to welcome these newcomers and encourage their participation in all our activities.  

Earlier this year we lost a one of our newest and youngest members - Seth Zaiser. Those of you who knew Seth personally will agree that he had an unbelievable passion for vintage Japanese motorcycles. Recognizing Seth's passion for the core belief of VJMC the 2013 Bike Show will be dedicated to the memory of your friend and ours, Seth Zaiser. We will present a special trophy to a Rally Bike Show entry under 200cc. Hence forth, we will continue to honor Seth with an annual presentation to be known as the "Z-Man" award. Anticipated judges for this trophy will be Onell Lee, Steve Brown, Bill Granade, Mike Fitterling and myself, Peter Slatcoff.
