The 2022 event saw more than 2,500 motorcycles in attendance, and this year’s edition is expected to exceed that. From June 9 to 11, riders will be descending on Budweis to participate in the comradery that we all love to see at motorcycle events.

The Indian Riders Fest was created by Jean-Marie Guyon with the purpose of gathering riders from around the world to share their passion of Indian motorcycles, regardless of language or background. Indian Motorcycles will be a main partner of the event again this year.
