Gear up for the ninth annual Texas M/C Revival on Saturday, Nov. 6, at Hill Country Motorheads museum, 2001 Texas 29 in Burnet. The event, which is 10 a.m.-4 p.m., celebrates vintage motorcycles and features special guest Gary Davis, an American Motorcycle Association Hall of Fame racer and stuntman.

Admission is $5 for ages 12 and older and free for children 11 and younger.

The revival also features a vintage bike show with a People's Choice award and tours of the museum, which has quite a collection of its own. The museum exhibits bikes from the 1960s to the 1980s as well as riding memorabilia.

Davis began racing professionally in 1969 but switched to exhibition riding in 1971. He was a regular on the exhibition circuit, even jumping 21 cars in 1972 and besting Evel Knievel’s record of 19 cars at the time. Within a few years, Davis completed more than 300 public jumps.

In 1973, Davis went into stunt work. Since then, he’s been in more than 280 films, over 250 TV episodes, and about 190 commercials. He was even Knievel’s stunt rider in the 1977 biopic “Viva Knievel.”

Davis was inducted into the hall of fame in 2018.
