Each June among the cornfields in Eastern Iowa one of the largest two day motorcycle events in the Midwest takes place. The small town of Anamosa, Iowa with a population of approximately 5,500, home to the J&P Cycles headquarters, hosts the annual J&P Cycles Open House Rally. Last year more than 30,000 motorcyclists and spectators converged on J&P to attend this fun-filled family event.
For 2013, more than 110 motorcycle vendors will be onsite displaying the latest and greatest motorcycle merchandise, including 20 semis. See two of the stars from the hit television show Sons of Anarchy, Ryan Hurst who plays Harry “Opie” Winston and Tommy Flanagan who plays Filip “Chibs” Telford. 1 Wheel Revolution will again perform a variety of stunts for those in attendance. On Saturday meet 1998 AMA 250GP National Champion Road Racer Roland Sands who now runs Roland Sands Designs.
Visitors will save big throughout the weekend on J&P Cycles’ enormous inventory of parts, accessories and apparel. Most products in the showroom will be 10 percent off (15 percent for Gold Club members) and a tent will be devoted to drastically reduced clearance items (up to 50 percent off).
Attendees can sign up to win thousands of dollars in door prizes. Plus, donate for a chance to win the National Motorcycle Museum’s 2013 Arlen Ness Victory Cross Country. There will also be a silent auction to benefit the National Motorcycle Museum Grab a free burger or hotdog in the food tent – courtesy of Allstate Insurance Company. Volunteers from Camp Courageous of Iowa, a year-round respite care and recreation facility for individuals, will be manning beverage stations throughout the grounds for donations.
