When Spring rolls around in Indianapolis, the vintage bike scene comes alive at Rockers Reunion. The 7th annual event brought out the city’s coolest customs and oldies-but-goodies, but it’s the overall scene we dig the most: the people, the music, the vibe. If you couldn’t make it, here’s a taste of what you missed and why we’re a proud sponsor of this always-entertaining motorcycle gathering.

This year, the weather forecast was looking terrible for the event. Hail, high winds and torrential downpours were potentially headed to Indy, but when the event rolled around there was only a few minutes of sprinkles and perfect temps for the entire bike show and afterparty. That’s Spring in the Midwest. So, if you stayed home or couldn’t make it to Rockers Reunion this year, don’t miss next year and ride on in, man! Keep it tuned to the event’s website for dates and info about 2014.
