AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has welcomed a number of marque and regional clubs to this summer’s premier celebration of motorcycling heritage, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, July 22-24 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Jack Penton (AMA Director of Operations and Motorcycle Hall of Famer) says: “The Club Corral is a vital part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, and expands the event’s appeal to a number of enthusiasts and fans.

“Enhancing the presence of Kawasaki, which will be honored as Marque of the Year at 2011 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, and our Classic Club, the Aermacchi/Harley-Davidson Club, will be a number of groups that each represent its own slice of the motorcycling culture.”

Displays in the Club Corral will include original and restored motorcycles, club information, historical information, memorabilia and, most importantly, will be staffed by some of the most die-hard brand enthusiasts you’ll find.

Currently scheduled to appear in the Club Corral at this year’s AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days are:

  • The Bridgestone Motorcycle Club
  • The International CBX Owners Association
  • The Cincinnati Classic British Motorcycle Owners
  • The Kawasaki ZL Owners Association
  • Ohio Norton Clubs
  • The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC)
  • The North American Kawasaki Triples Club

 

Other clubs that desire to be part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days are encouraged to contact AMA Events Manager Connie Fleming at (614) 856-1900, ext. 1258, or at cfleming@ama-cycle.org.

There is no additional cost to participate in the Club Corral beyond the event ticket price. Clubs are simply asked to commit to contributing to the educational and fun atmosphere of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. Display costs, such as tent rentals, catering and other enhancements to the provided display area are the responsibility of the club.

The Club Corral is just one part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, which this year will shine the spotlight on Kawasaki as Marque of the Year. Kawasaki activities will include displays, demo rides, seminars, autograph signings and more. Attendees will also have an opportunity to win a new Kawasaki Z1000 and a classic Z1, given away in a single raffle that will benefit the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

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 the Club Corral, the event features North America’s largest vintage motorcycle swap meet, demo rides of current production bikes, educational seminars, bike shows, motorcycling seminars and the new product Manufacturers’ Midway.

Proceeds from AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days benefit the Motorcycle Hall of Fame, which is located on the campus of the AMA in Pickerington, Ohio. The mission of the Hall of Fame is to “celebrate, elucidate and preserve the rich tradition of motorcycling in America.” Its exhibits 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. For more information, call (614) 856-2222, or visit the Hall of Fame’s website at MotorcycleMuseum.org.
