  • A launch party for the IMRG is taking place in Austria at Faak Am See on Saturday 12th September
  • Join hundreds of other IMRG members on a communal ride in to the party
  • Food, drink, live music and a special Wall of Death show is planned

The Indian Motorcycle Riders Group (IMRG) is getting ready for a launch party, taking place in Area1 at Faak Am See in Austria this September.

The Indian Motorcycle Riders Group (IMRG) was launched in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in June but in this short time over 500 owners have joined up.

The launch party takes place in Area1 next to Lake Faaker where hundreds of bikers camp and gather around for a week of motorcycling fun and entertainment.

Dario Baraggia, EMEA brand manager for Indian Motorcycle says: “This launch party will give our new IMRG members an unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the birth of the Indian Motorcycle community outside of the USA. We can’t wait to see all our members ride in to Faak Am See for a party they’ll always remember.”

Here’s the program:

Saturday 12th September

  • 1pm – IMRG members meet between 1pm and 3pm (at a location near Faak Am See to be announced)
  • 3pm – the group rides in together to Faak Am See
  • 6pm – welcome drink at the IMRG tent
  • 8pm – a private Wall of Death show for IMRG members
  • 9pm – Live music performance from Gil Edwards ­then a lounge bar opens

After welcome drinks and a thrilling Wall of Death show, IMRG members will then be treated to live music from Gil Edwards and The Knuckleheads. Gil is a singer originally from Oregon in the USA whose emotive voice blends well with his gritty guitar playing.

Gil says he is really looking forward to meeting all the great folks at Faak Am See: “I have been playing music to bikers as long as I can remember. They are the absolute best audience,” he says. “Someone once asked me why I like Indian Motorcycle and it goes back a long way. My father was riding an old Indian inline four when he met my mom. That bike and the Indian logo are the first I ever saw. I have wanted an Indian ever since. I had my eye on an old Chief, but it was sold out from under me. 

Gil has also given a few hints about what kind of music IMRG members will hear at the party: “I was thinking about the set list and have decided to go old school,” he says. “My versions of some great rock and blues songs and a little Johnny Winter. Maybe even a little Gil Edwards. See ya all at Faak Am See.”

The launch party is limited to IMRG members, but to attend they must pre-register on

Attendees will receive an exclusive member welcome pack on arrival containing an IMRG collectable T-shirt, IMRG patch, helmet bag, temporary tattoo, lanyard and a VIP pass.
