All invited to downtown cycle rally

The second annual FXR and Bike Show is on July 20.

Motorcycle enthusiasts will be rolling into downtown Enumclaw this weekend for the second annual FXR Rally and Bike Show.

Sponsored by Northwest Motorcycles and Service, the event could draw as many as 1,000 people. Everything takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 20, in the city-owned parking lot fronting Cole Street, between Initial and Stevenson avenues.

Brian Caddy, who owns Northwest Motorcycles along with his wife Kate, notes how the event has grown quickly. Things started unofficially in 2017 and attendance grew into the hundreds for last year’s event; now, he envisions a much bigger turnout this time around with participants coming from Canada, Eastern Washington and, possibly, Southern California.

While many on hand are motorcycle owners who display their rides, everyone is welcome to drop by and check out the two-wheeled machines. Caddy expects everything from antique bikes to imports. The featured cycles are the FXR models (as the name of the event implies). The FXR line was produced by Harley-Davidson from the early 1980s into the mid-‘90s, then brought back for a limited run in 1999. They have a dedicated following, including Caddy.

The event has a distinctly local flavor. Northwest Motorcycles and Service is found at 1450 Cole Street in downtown Enumclaw, the beer garden will operated by The Yella Beak Saloon, spirits are from Pursuit Distillery and tacos will be served up by Pita’s Taqueria.

In conjunction with the rally and show will be the 10th annual “65 Roses” fundraising ride. Participants will depart Northwest Motorcycles at 10 a.m. and head up SR 410 before turning around and making a return trip to the rally on Cole Street. Registration is $20 per rider and $5 for a passenger and all proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
