The enthusiasts who attend AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days are an amazing group of motorcyclists who value tradition, competition and individual style — three characteristics that have made Triumph a success for more than a hundred years. VMD has become a cornerstone of our annual event schedule, and Triumph will be on location with the entire 2010 range of models in full regalia.”
Held at the world-class Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features vintage and post-vintage competition in motocross, trials, hare scrambles, roadracing and dirt track.
In addition to demo rides of current production bikes, the event includes North America’s largest motorcycle swap meet, educational seminars, bike shows, the Federal Companies/Allied Used Bike Corral, motorcycling seminars, the new product Manufacturers’ Midway, and club corrals featuring marque and regional clubs.
Husqvarna is the 2010 Marque of the Year at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, with off-road racing legend Malcolm Smith serving as grand marshal.
