  2. Register onsite when you show up in Luckenbach.

How do I register my bike in the show?
Pre-register online or register at the event for a Weekend Pass (also includes camping, dinner and movie). Show Entrants must have a Weekend Pass wristband. (Day Passes are not eligible to compete). Entry and registration for motorcycles into the Harvest Classic Bike Show takes place in the morning from 10 til 12. At High Noon the show is closed to any further admissions, so don’t be late! Also check out the Bike Show page.

Why should I pre-register?
We like it when people pre-register, because it helps us to better plan for the event, and gives us a little up-front money to help cover insurance, t-shirt printing, and other rally-related expenses. Additionally, all pre-registrants receive a complimentary rally shirt.
^ top
I pre-registered online. What’s next?
You will receive a confirmation e-mail. Your rally packet and shirt will be waiting for you at the registration table at the rally. In order to save money, we don’t send out a snail mail confirmation. If you miss the rally…

How do I register my club or a group? What if some of the people don’t have computers?
You can register up to 3 guests when you register online. Tell us what size t-shirts your guests will require via the registration form, and your guest’s shirts will be included in your packet at the main counter. Or if that’s too much hassle, you can always register onsite in Luckenbach.
^ top
I didn’t pre-register, but I want to attend the rally.
That’s no problemo, amigo! Just come on down and you can register when you show up.
^ top
I can only come out for one day. Which day should I attend?
Friday is pretty low-key and is just setting up camp, visiting with other rally-goers, and riding tiddlers in the 100cc Fun Run. Saturday is THE DAY. All events (except the Fun Run & circus) happen on Saturday, so don’t miss it. On Sunday, everybody packs up, goes home, and collapses.
^ top
I pre-registered, but didn’t attend the rally. Can you mail me my shirt and rally packet?
Sure. Just send us a letter, with $5 enclosed to cover the postage, and we’ll send you your rally packet and shirt.
^ top
Can I send in my pre-registration by snail mail?
We do not accept mail-in registrations. There’s too much risk of the mail-in registration getting lost, not getting a shirt, unhappy campers, etc.
^ top
Is anyone making profit off the Harvest Classic?
No. The Harvest Classic is put together by a group of friends. We call ourselves the Central Texas Motorcycle Charities. None of us get paid. We do this because we want to make a difference in the lives of families who are living with childhood cancer. All money raised after expenses is donated to the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer program of Any Baby Can.

Can I build a roaring fire and embrace my inner cave man at the firepit?
YES! 
^ top
Can I bring my own alcohol to the Harvest Classic?
No. Luckenbach does not allow any alcoholic beverages to be brought in.
^ top
Can I bring my guitar and golden throat to the Harvest Classic?
Music is the backbone of Luckenbach. Just ask yourself one question. What would Willie do?
^ top
Is food available for purchase throughout the day?
There is a family-run concession stand right next to the dancehall, which is open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday. We also arrange for some other food options, as the lines for the concession stand do get a little out of hand. But please save room for our Saturday night barbecue dinner. Our caffeine-fueled pit crew works all night to smoke the most tender, tastiest brisket you have ever sunk your teef into. People love the food at the Harvest Classic rally!

Is there room for me to bring my huge RV?
No. We have a parking meadow for cars and trucks, but ginormous RVs have a hard time making the sharp turn required to get into the meadow. Also, if the meadow is wet, you will get stuck. The parking meadow is just a big unimproved field, so big RVs can have a tough time. KOA and Armadillo Campgrounds are both within 5 miles, and are both good choices for those who wish to bring huge RVs. If you have a smallish RV or pop-up trailer, you can park it in the parking meadow along the back fence. The Harvest Classic is not optimized for RVs, and the RV parking area is a nice hike from the rest of the events. Bring a pitbike, you’ll need it!
^ top
Are hookups or electricity available for my RV?
No
^ top
Can I bring my dog or pet?
Yes, but all animals must be on leashes and be well-behaved. Please remember that this is a loud event with children present and we would prefer to not have any incidents. The animal’s behavior reflects directly upon its owner, so any problems will result in the removal of both from the grounds.
^ top
What’s it like camping in the “Motorcycles Only” camping area?
It’s an amazing experience. We don’t allow any cars, trucks, trailers or RVs (or generators!) into this area, so when you wake up, it’s just bikes and tents. Plus, the campfire scene offers world class fun and fellowship.
^ top
What are you doing to ensure a safe camping experience?
As Organizers, we owe it to everyone who participates in the Harvest Classic to provide a safe environment to rally around these old bikes. The Harvest Classic isn’t a Mad Max re-enactment and is not a place to sow one’s wild oats. The campground isn’t the burnout stage at the Cabbbage Patch. We want everyone to have a great time, meet new friends, see old bikes, and come away from the rally knowing that they have made a difference in a sick child’s life. We have given lots of thought over the years as to how we can best help that happen in a manner which is in keeping with the spirit of the rally.

  • We work closely with the Gilllespie County Sheriffs Office
  • We have hired additional night-time security
  • We have a top notch Security Team and will address aggressive behavior with a quickness
If you have any security concerns during the rally, please seek out someone wearing a red staff shirt, and we will resolve the situation immediately.

Are there showers and bathrooms?
Sadly, Luckenbach doesn’t have any showers, but we have several port-potties. For a fee, there are showers available at the Armadillo Farm Campground, which is less than a mile up the road. It’s money well spent!
^ top
Can I park my car, truck, van, or trailer in the “Motorcycle Only” camping area?
Any car, truck, van, or trailer parked in the “Motorcycle Only” camping area will be used as a trials obstacle. This is a motorcycle rally—leave your cages at home…or at least leave them the car parking lot…
^ top
Can I roar around the campground at night, then back my bike up to a row of fine classic bikes, and do a burnout on them, rudely showering them all with dust and grit?
No. You will be detained while the sheriff is called, and you will be banned from attending the Harvest Classic in the future.
^ top
Are vendor spaces available?
The Harvest Classic is not a commercial rally, but we do offer our Gold level and higher sponsors an opportunity to display and sell their goods. We are really picky about the vibe of the rally, and don’t allow the sale of BlueBlocker sunglasses, do-rags, neon light kits, and other garish crap. Luckily, our sponsors totally get it, and usually show up with some choice moto-goods that are hard to find anywhere else.
^ top
How much are raffle tickets? Can I buy some in advance? Do I need to be present to win?
Raffle tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. They can be purchased at the rally. You must be present for the raffle drawing in order to collect your prize.

Can I bring out a truckload full of parts, spread it out on the ground, and sell it at the Harvest Classic?
No, but we have a small swap meet where used parts and bikes are horse-traded. Click here for more details. 
^ top
I ride a (insert brand here). Can I come to the Harvest Classic?
All brands and riders are welcome at this event. If you want to show your bike, you’ll need a full pass, not a day pass. You should also read the Bike Show page, as there are some restrictions. 
^ top
I know the event starts Friday, but 2 days aren’t enough Rally for me. Can I camp starting Thursday?
Not in the Town of Luckenbach, they’ve asked us to limit the camping to Friday & Saturday nights. There’s a couple of campgrounds nearby, though, such as the Armadillo & KOA.
^ top
I ride a moped with expansion chambers, rearsets, and clip-ons. Will I be pelted with rocks and garbage if I come to the Harvest Classic?
Absolutely not! We love vintage scooters and mopeds, and welcome all riders to attend the rally. Scooters and mopeds are cool, especially if they are sufficiently pimped and mongrelized. Throw a kit on it!
