AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days welcomes precision riding team

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that the Ride Like a Pro precision riding team will perform at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this July 24-26 as part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.

"AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is known for one of the broadest schedules of motorcycling-related activities anywhere, from our massive swap meet to seminars to bike shows to vintage racing," said Tigra Tsujikawa, AMA special events manager. "The entertainment also extends to displays of extraordinary riding skill, such as what visitors will witness this year when the Ride Like a Pro team takes to the stunt area."

Ride Like a Pro showcases "the fusion of entertainment and rider skills enlightenment." Ride Like a Pro is led by Jerry "Motorman" Palladino, who has produced instructional motorcycle videos and appears weekly on SPEED with motorcycling safety tips. The team includes two petite female riders who handle their 850-pound motorcycles as easily as a kid plays with a toy car.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days attracts thousands of the most enthusiastic motorcyclists on the planet every year, from racers to vintage collectors to restorers to fans," Palladino said. "The one thing they all have in common is they’re serious about their riding. We’re looking forward to showing this group some great riding techniques, and I can guarantee the crowd will be laughing and learning at the same time."

Palladino and his team will perform daily and will have the Ride Like a Pro book and DVDs available for sale before and after the rider skills demonstrations. More information about Ride Like a Pro can be found at
