It’s understandable that Big Dog Motorcycles has decided not to hold its Tornado Rally this June — the event got too big for the company to handle, and the crowds were too much for its block of East Douglas, blocking access to nearby businesses.
But Wichita tourism officials should find a different venue and a willing event sponsor that could continue the success of this popular motorcycle rally, which drew 30,000 people last year.
This is precisely the kind of authentic, homegrown event that could attract thousands of visitors to Wichita and pump a lot of money into the local economy.
