Smoke Out Rally 2011

The Smoke Out is about choppers. It is about builders, from professional builders to those bloody-knuckled guys (and ladies) burning the midnight oil in an unheated shed to build a chopper they can call their own. Chops of all makes are featured, American, British, Japanese, everything.

Located at the Horse Back Street Choppers on June 24-25, 2011 in Rockingham, North Carolina, the event is a full weekend to look at fine chops, listen to good music, relax, catch up with old friends or make new friends, eat good food, take a couple nice putts in a pretty countryside, drink some beer, shop the vendors wares,… and more.

On Saturday, June 25, 2011 the Smoke Out is host to the greatest ride-in owner-garage-built bike show in the world. This bike show has only one class: CHOPPER. Choppers of all varieties are represented, bobbers, Swedish Chops, Rock-a-Billy Chops, etc. as well as various engine configurations such as Sportsters, metric engines, Shovelheads, Evos and everything else. 

The HORSE, BC staff picks Ten winners. There is no First, Second, Third etc. just Ten winners. All winners are featured in the pages of The HORSE Backstreet Choppers Magazine.

The ten bikes usually represent a variety of styles and engine configurations, so every well-built chopper has a chance.

This is a ride-in show. The quickest way to discredit your chopper is to tow it in. Registration for the show will be during the Smoke Out at the Smoke House. The location and times for registration will be shown on the event schedules that are handed out at the event.

There is a small entrance fee for registration ($20 per bike). Some contact information and pictures of your bike will be taken as part of the registration process. Your bike will need to stay in place Saturday afternoon so you might want to plan on having lunch on the grounds if your bike is your only source of transportation.

Good luck to all the Chopper Jockeys. The Smoke Out information is located at
