I'm looking for cafe racer events/rallies in the midwest for next Summer?

I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any good cafe racer events/rallies going on in the midwest during the Summer of 2013.

There is a Mods vs Rockers event in Cleveland every summer. Last year in July.

Thanks! These look cool. I've been to Delilah's bar in Chicago. It's my kind of place.

Rockerbox (Milwaukee) is fantastic and a must see also Motorcycle Monday's at Five Star Bar (Chicago) if the timing is right http://fivestarbar.com/ also.... http://thejeezloueez.com/blog/?p=1637

If your route can manage it stop by Morrie's Place (Ringwood, IL) http://morriesplacecycle.com/ it is classic bike heaven.

Mods vs Rockers - Cleveland

Have any of you attended this and able to give us us report? I wanted to go, but seems like the weather was too iffy this year for the trek - I'm a fair weather rider.

11 + hour ride for me to go to Cleveland. I need a trailer so I can get close and then tell everyone how cool I am for riding all the way.
Actually, if I ever do the trip to any of these, I will take my sweet time. I think it would be a fun journey. My fair weathered friend, I am with you. I hate riding in rain. I guess we'll see how crazy I feel.

By the way, I live in Des Moines, Iowa and I am recruiting new people to my "Ton Up Des Moines" club. If you live in Iowa and are into the cafe racer/rockers/mod scene, check out our facebook page. Hell, maybe I won't have to ride so far to get to a rally. Here is our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/374267125991589/
