Tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from across the country gathered to enjoy three days of vintage motorcycle racing product displays and demo rides, bike shows, seminars, a bustling marketplace, entertainment, and camaraderie at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, OH, during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days July 7-9.

The annual event, organized and promoted by the American Motorcyclist Association, raises funds for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame to support its mission to promote the heritage of motorcycling in America. Thanks to the support of AMA affinity group Riders of Kawasaki (ROK), this year’s event honored co-grand marshals Tony Nicosia, Steve Johnson, Gary Semics, and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Jeff Fredette.

“AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days provides an opportunity, each year, for motorcyclists to come together and immerse themselves in the history of our shared passion, as well as look forward to the future of motorcycling and what lies ahead for us a community,” AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman said. “We would like to thank everyone who helped promote and preserve motorcycling’s heritage through the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.”

Many AMA promoters and clubs assisted in the operation of racing activities throughout the weekend. KTM North America, Janus Motorcycles, Cleveland Cyclewerks, Zero Motorcycles, and GasGas provided demo rides.
