A IMG 1416The Busted Knuckles Stunt tour
The Busted Knuckles Stunt Tour is returning to Americade 2018. We've hosted world champion stunt riders before, but these guys have a unique and fun approach to their wild stunts....they don't ride motocross or trials bikes. Instead, these guys do all their stunts on Harley-Davidsons!

These American Daredevils perform stunts that include wheelies, acrobatics, burnouts, jumps, pyrotechnic stunts, and whatever else they have up their sleeve. Every show is unique and different. Exciting, crazy and fun are just a few words to describe the Busted Knuckles Stunt Tour, and an energetic Americade crowd is just fuel to the rider's fire.
