Demo Rides

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that Yamaha Motor Corp. USA will have both Yamaha sportbikes and Star cruisers on hand for attendees to test ride at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this July 9-11 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Included in the demo lineup will be numerous 2010 models from both the Yamaha and Star Motorcycles lineups: the Yamaha R1, Yamaha FZ6R, Yamaha FJR, Star Stratoliner Deluxe, Star Warrior and Star Vmax.

“AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days has been one of the successful stops for Yamaha on the extensive schedule of demo events that we participate in,” said Kim Knupp, the Assistant Division Manager, National Events, for Yamaha USA’s Motorsports Division. “We are offering a large range of cruisers and sport bikes for the customers to demo ride during the weekend.”

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.

Proceeds from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days benefit the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The goal of the Hall of Fame, located on the campus of the AMA in Pickerington, Ohio, is to honor the distinguished men and women whose competitive spirit, passion, vision and entrepreneurship have played a vital role in shaping the sport, lifestyle and business of motorcycling.
