Motorcycle Events

On Sunday, Oct. 17, 2010, 500 motorcyclists arrived at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum to participate in the “Born to be Wild Event and VIP Party.”

Guests toured the Reagan Library’s “Born to be Wild: Vintage and Celebrity Motorcycles” exhibit, listened to the eight-piece All-Star Revue United Blues Band, and dined at an all-you-can-eat presidential barbecue buffet feast.

During the short program, Grand Marshal Karen Davidson remarked that she was proud to be a part of this event at The Reagan Library, noting that it was President Ronald Reagan who helped her grandparents turn the company around in the 1980s.

The “Born to be Wild: Vintage and Celebrity Motorcycles” Exhibit, which chronicles the history and rich tradition of motorcycle culture from around the world, is currently on display at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum through Nov. 9, 2010 within the Library Air Force One Pavilion.

The exhibit includes the display of dozens of iconic movie and celebrity motorcycles as well as rare and vintage motorcycles dating back to 1899.
