The Indian vs Harley (pre 1965) rivalry is going to be the focus of a race this week near Yosemite Park, California

This group consists of a pair of Indian Twins, three Excelsior Ace Fours, and at least one Harley Davidson, all ready for some real road racing on a public road.

For eighteen years Harley & Indian enthusiasts in Australia have been recreating the rivalry that was so much a part of motorcycling in the Twenties, Thirties, and Forties of the last century. In 2011 we are bringing that Rivalry home to America where the bikes were built! The Great Indian V Harley Race of 2011 will be based in Oakhurst California, right on the doorstep to Yosemite.

During the ride we will have checkpoints, timed mileage sections and other challenges. At each checkpoint the rider will be earning points for his brand of motorcycle. At the end of our event we will gather for a banquet feast and crown the race victor and who will receive bragging rights for the next year, as the winner of the great race.

Event Registration fee: $185.00

All bikes must be 1965 & older, and older bikes will now receive an incentive!
