Dates announced for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days: July 10-12, 2015
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- December 17, 2014 -- The American Motorcyclist Association has announced that next year's premier celebration of vintage motorcycling, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, will be July 10-12, 2015, at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
"AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days has a long and rich history as one of motorcycling's most fun, feel-good events," said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. "From the vintage racing to the bike shows to the enormous swap meet, there is something for everyone at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. If you love motorcycles, there is no better place to be."
A fundraiser for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous.
Activities include the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which features road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt-track racing. Another top attraction is North America's largest motorcycle swap meet with parts, bikes and memorabilia from all eras. Bike shows bring out examples of some of history's most beloved motorcycles. Stunt shows, such as the American Motor Drome Wall of Death, and demo rides of current production bikes keep attendees entertained, while seminars on numerous topics by noted motorcycling experts keep them informed.
