BikeBandit.com AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days to feature Hall of Famer Dick Burleson as grand marshal
"Dick Burleson's dominant run in the AMA Grand National Enduro Championships is legendary," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "His dedication to competition and his focus on excellence produced a winning streak that included some of Husqvarna's greatest titles in the country's leading off-road championship. BikeBandit.com AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is the perfect venue to honor Dick Burleson's accomplishments, and we are very pleased that he will be our grand marshal."
In addition to his incredible domestic record, Burleson also won eight consecutive gold medals in the world's top off-road competitive event, the International Six Days Trials (now called the International Six Days Enduro).
Burleson was born in Johnson City, Tenn., in 1948. His family moved to St. Joseph, Mich., when he was 2 years old. Burleson first began riding at 18, and in the late 1960s he excelled at motocross.
