The Very Boring Rally 5 by Aerostich is here, and with it comes guest speakers, storytellers, a bike night, a Rider of the Month meet-up, and more. It all started July 7 and runs through the month of August.
Aero Design & Mfg. Co. Inc. started in 1983 with the goal of developing “a completely new type of textile-based gear for motorcyclists.” The efforts of that goal resulted in the Roadcrafter suit, which is still available as the Roadcrafter Classic. Aerostich’s popular R-3 suit is the third generation of the Roadcrafter, and the R-3 can now be custom-tailored for an exact fit.
Since those early days, Aerostich has increased its product offerings, now including jackets, pants, gloves, boots, and other gear in its catalog. The Aerostich factory and store are located in Duluth, Minnesota.
Thursday, July 13, is Bike Night starting at 5 p.m. Bike Night includes a ride over Bong Bridge and through Billings Park and ends at the Superior Porchfest for free live outdoor music and a food truck.
On Friday, July 28, guest speaker Dr. Gregory W. Frazier will discuss “Motorcycle Sex and Adventure – Secrets, Tips, and Tricks” at 2 p.m.
Plenty more guest speakers are scheduled to visit Aerostich during July and August, including Duane “Digger” Carey, Paul Pelland, Pat Hahn, Robert Higdon, and Voni and Paul Glaves. The Aerostich founder and owner will be featured as a guest speaker to end the two-month-long event on Saturday, Aug. 26. The full schedule can be found on the Very Boring Rally’s website.
Also included in the rally is the Rider of the Month Meet-Up on Aug. 11, during which visitors can chat with Aerostich Riders of the Month.
Visiting the Aerostich factory or store in Dutuh, Minnesota, during the rally gets you a free “Very Boring Rally 5” T-shirt and collectible event pin, and you’ll have the chance to take advantage of the VBR sale on the Roadcrafter Classic suit. Visitors can save 5-15% on a Roadcrafter Classic one-piece suit, two-piece suit, jacket, or pants.
Each Friday with a guest speaker will have a light lunch served at noon, and Saturday mornings with speakers will have a continental breakfast. The Very Boring Rally will also include contests and door prizes, tech sessions, factory tours, a souvenir booklet, and more.
