As many as 1,000 motorcycles could be rolling into Springfield in August… one day after the State Fair ends.
Springfield will be one of five stops on the Hot Bike Tour… sponsored by Hot Bike Magazine and GEICO. Hot Bike… a magazine for fans of customized and home-built motorcycles… says Springfield has a great tradition of support for motorcycles, tied to events like the Springfield Mile and its spot along Route 66.
The stop on Monday, August 18th, will be the third of five stops on a tour that starts in Joplin, Missouri and ends in the Wisconsin Dells. The Springfield event will include live music and a demonstration of custom-built cycles. City officials say it will bring lots of visitors and money to Springfield.
