Bull City Rumble 9 Retrospective...

Aerial view of the Rumble in the late afternoon byJohn Huber.
The Bull City Rumble #9: NC's Largest Vintage Motorcycle, Scooter and Cafe Racer show is now a piece of history. Thank You for attending or supporting our event in its 9th year. Many of you know the story of what started as a small get together of close friends in a parking lot in Raleigh, NC to what it is a now: thousands of motorcyclists from all over the country/world coming together in historic downtown Durham, NC for a weekend of rare motorcycles/scooters, great rock and roll/burlesque and camaraderie. This year's event broke all attendance records with nearly 400 motorcycles in the bike show and nearly 5,000 people in and out of the event over the weekend making it one of the largest mods vs. rockers themed events in the world. Now, onto planning for the 10th Anniversary of the Bull City Rumble scheduled for Labor Day Weekend 2014 and we hope you make plans to be there again to party with us. Its gonna be the best one yet. August 29-31, 2014.
