Lawless Harley-Davidson, located in Scott City, Missouri; had their First Annual Freedom Rally and it was a huge success with riders coming in from surrounding states. The Lawless Freedom Rally was a 3-day weekend full of bikes, rides, stunt shows, the Lawless Saloon with live bands and of course the Miss Lawless Harley-Davidson contest all while paying tribute to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces.
“This year was a huge success. We set it up so we could grow and wanted people to have a good time right here at the Lawless Harley-Davidson dealership. We had no idea that people would ride in from out of state, but our entertainment lineup proved worth traveling for. For the next event we hope to have camping nearby as well.” shared Aaron Joyner, General Manager.
The Lawless Freedom Rally was more than just a motorcycle rally, it was fun the whole family could enjoy with race cars on display from Benton Race Park, hot rods from the River City Rodders and a highlight of the weekend was the Isle Casino Lawless Freedom Ride, which was a Police-escorted ride lead by author and TV personality retired SFC Toby Nunn. The parade of bikes rode from the Isle Casino to Lawless Harley-Davidson where riders got to see the debut and even demo the 2015 Harley-Davidson models. The weekend also featured the first Miss Lawless Harley-Davidson contest, which was won by Sommer Millard from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She will be the reigning champion for the next 6 months and will wear the coveted Miss Lawless Harley-Davidson bullet sash.
Wall of Death rider Rhett Rotten was hot on the scene in his best form ever putting on several thrill shows every day enthralling crowds and taking time to interact with all the kids. ECXFMX freestyle team starring legendary “Mad” Mike Jones and Brent Schwalm performed amazing high-flying stunts throughout the day highlighted by “Mad” Mike surprising the audience with his no handed landing of which he was the first freestyle rider to do in 1995. Stunt shows were complimented by music for all tastes including rock, country, rock-a-billy, funk and more from Mike Renick Band, Smoke N’ Guns, The Intention, Super Jam and The Trip Daddy’s all weekend.
