Ohio Bike Week has come and gone. And it seems like a good part of Summer is flying by as well.
By the time you read this, the days will already be getting shorter. Weather has not cooperated much either. But still a lot to do in the coming months.
This year make it a point to head out to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the 2019 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Honda.
The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Bike Show and two daredevil riding exhibitions will entertain spectators over the three days that are Vintage Motorcycle Days July 5-7. Three time AMA Grand National Dirt-track champ, Bubba Short is the 2019 Grand Marshall.
Both vintage and modern competition and custom motorcycles will be displayed at the Old Bike Barn Crossroads on the Mid-Ohio infield. On-site registration to enter the show will be accepted 8-11 a.m. July 6. The $10 fee is a donation to the nonprofit AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
The Wall of Death features motorcycle riders performing tricks and aerobatic riding on vintage motorcycles along a vertical wall. The Xtreme Trials Exhibition will feature top performers in the NATC/AMA Moto Trials National Championship Series.
All the while vintage competition in road racing, motocross, hare scrambles (you may even catch a glimpse of Billy Morris of Sunset Strip going over the river and through the woods) and trials will be held at Mid-Ohio. The ever popular flat track racing is held at nearby Ashland County Fairgrounds. Exhibition pit bike racing and dirt drags are also a fan favorite.
Vendors of all types will be on-site and don’t forget the Federal Motorcycle Transport sponsored AMA Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet in the U.S., the largest in the U.S.
I don’t believe you will be disappointed. If you are out and about that weekend stop over and say hi. You can usually find me at the camper near the top of the keyhole.
As always ride safe,
