Indian Riders Fest 2024 promises "abundance of highlights"

Indian Motorcycle is going all out this year at the Indian Riders Fest 2024, which marks the 10th anniversary of the official Indian Riders Group and this year has the theme “Back In Time”. The Americans even speak of an “abundance of exciting program highlights.”

Taking you on an immersive, nostalgic journey through the 70s, 80s and 90s, the IRF24 aims to bring together riders and fans from all corners of the world to cement its position as one of the premier gatherings of Indian Motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide to be emphasized again.

Grant Bester, Vice President International Indian Motorcycle:

“We are excited to extend our partnership with Jean-Marie and the IRF team for Indian Riders Fest for 2024. Indian Motorcycle has always been committed to the riding community and the IRF is not only a celebration of our motorcycles but also highlights the dedication of our riders.

The rapid evolution of the IRF since 2019 is a testament to the team and as the premier event on the international calendar it allows us to connect with owners on a deeper level. After the super fun time I had at the 2023 event, I can’t wait to meet and ride everyone again at Budweis in 2024.”

Jean-Marie Guyon, the organizer of the IRF:

“I am very pleased with this renewed commitment from Indian Motorcycle. It marks another exciting chapter in our continued partnership. We look forward to taking IRF24 to new heights and creating unforgettable moments for the Indian Motorcycle community.

Indian Motorcycle and the IRF team are eagerly awaiting the event and invite motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the world to be a part of this extraordinary event. With our theme ‘Back In Time’ we take you on a nostalgic journey back to an era full of music and freedom, a time before social media dominated our lives. Let’s make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.”

Building on the success of 2023, when a record number of more than 3,000 riders from as many as 39 nationalities took the ride to České Budějovice (Budweis) in the Czech Republic, an extra day has been added to the 2024 edition of the IRF from 13-16 July.
