The 2016 Harvest Classic was a blast and with over 3000 enthusiasts attending I think it’s safe to say the weather was slightly better than last years …in fact, it was glorious. The extreme wide variety of bikes and eclectic riders make this my favorite event of the year …and if you thought it couldn’t get better, the heart and spirit of the rally is dedicated to raise money for childhood cancer through Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation (click the link, learn more and donate if you feel the love).
The event has so many fun and exciting events wrapped into the weekend that I can’t do it all justice but hope you enjoy the pics we have. Thank you Russel and all volunteers.
Without further delay, lets get to some pictures of the event and the bikes:
- Me and my good friend Tim rode out at 6:30am on Friday morning to make it to Luckenbach by 815am. Tim rode a 1975 Honda Goldwing, and I was on my 2012 Multistrada. We wanted to get a good camp spot and we had a chilly ride in but loved every minute of it.
- Welcome to the Harvest Classic, “Abandon All Despair, Ye Who Enter Here.”
2. Tom Dooley is a great guy and amazing friend, he brought these two Suzuki 100cc bikes for us to ride in the 100cc Fun Run. Green bike is a ’74 and the yellow is a ’75. We did a fist bump at about 35mph during the Fun Run and just had the best time being us.
6. I entered my first Observed Trials competition and it was on an Electric Motion bike from Voltage Powersports. Crazy fun and lots of power. Check them out.
9. Revvs donated this framed picture to be auctioned off. Eric Spille took the picture of a rained on vintage BMW from a previous years Harvest Classic. The picture was printed on aluminum and Eric custom made the steal frame. So cool. Great job Big E.
14. This 1912 Indian tribute bike was for sale during the swap meet. Thought this was a beautiful tribute even with its brand new 50cc engine.
16. Our friend Craig never disappoints. His bike builds are as radically unique as he is. This bike has the biggest rear tire I’ve ever seen, a suicide shifter, and the longest stretched riding position possible. You have to smile seeing him ride this down the road, check the Revvs t-shirt too.
20. Possibly my favorite bike of the weekend. This BMW was brought back to life with a lot of work but for sure a rebuilt engine, hand painted body work, and some custom niceties like the turn signal indicators in the handlebars and black and red front fork springs. I want this bike.
