Rally on the River

Events

Be sure to mark your calendar for this year’s Rally on the River, coming up September 25-27 at Green’s Canoe Rental and Campground in Steelville, Missouri. Every year this fun, laid-back event is hosted by Interstate Motorcycles (an excellent Royal Enfield dealer in Rolla, MO) and draws a great group of people from both Royal Enfield and Moto Guzzi circles. Enjoy beautiful riding country in the shallow foothills edging the Ozarks, good food all weekend long and, of course, a great group of people. This rally is truly an event not to be missed!

There’s no rally fee for the event – just bring a little cash for food, drinks and camping at the rally (there are also hotel rooms available nearby).

To find out more, download a copy of the event flyer from Interstate Motorcycles or give them a call at 1-888-265-6294.

We hope to see you there!

Meet Dannie Mullins: owner of the first C5 sold in the USA

In the News, Random Notes

Bright and early this morning we got a call from Bill (Slam) Dunkis the owner of Interstate Motorcycles in Rolla MO.  Somehow the trucking company got  his C5  to him overnight  from our warehouse. His customer for the bike Dannie Mullins called last night and asked if he could sleep in Bills parking lot so he could pick up his bike bright and early this morning. Sure enough, by the time Bill got to work, there was Dannie waiting.

In the words of Bill – “I handed it to it’s new owner and asked him to take it out for a 20 mile ride on our Missouri Ozark mountain two lane roads and tell us what he thought. He was glad to oblige.

When he came back, and after he extracted the massive smile from his face, the first words out of his mouth was “This may be the best handling motorcycle I’ve ever ridden ! Crisp handling in the corners and rock solid on the straights.”This coming unsolicited from a rider with 30+ years experience”.

Congratulations Dannie – we hope you love your new bike. His was the first warranty registration we received so I guess that makes him the first owner of a C5 in the USA.
