AMA Communications | Posted November 11, 2010 Pickerington, OH


At the 2010 Vintage Motorcycle Days.
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce the 2011 dates for the country's premier annual celebration of motorcycling heritage. AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will take place next year on July 22-24, 2011, at the world-class Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

The 20th Annual AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days features classic motorcycles of all makes and styles, and honors the riders who made them famous. Activities include the AMA Racing Vintage Grand Championships, which feature road racing, motocross, hare scrambles, trials and dirt track; North America's largest motorcycle swap meet; bike shows and awards; a Marque of the Year display that showcases the history of a unique brand; a Grand Marshal; a new-product vendor midway; stunt shows; demo rides of current production bikes; and seminars on a number of topics by noted motorcycling experts.

"For many motorcyclists, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is the premier event of their riding seasons," said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. "As we've seen over the years, the appeal of this event goes beyond classic motorcycle collectors and strict vintage competitors. Motorcyclists of all eras are drawn to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, brought together by their common love of all things motorcycling."

Tickets will go on sale Monday Nov. 22 at 8:30 a.m., and begin at $20 per day or $35 for the weekend. Please visit www.midohio.com or call 800-MID-OHIO (643-6446) for more information or to order tickets.

"We are proud to be the host site of this excellent event for the 17th year," said Michelle Trueman Gajoch, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and The Mid-Ohio School. "It will be a phenomenal time for the motorcycle crowd as racing, the swap meet, seminars and more will capture their attention throughout the weekend. This year will be a special one as Mid-Ohio celebrates its 50th Season of Racing, giving fans another historic reason to attend AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days."
I can hardly wait

Re: dates released for AMA Vintage Cycle days
 
So, how many folks on here have vintage cycles?

Or, do you just like looking at them?

Vintage is generally considered pre-1980, but that is always subject to interpretation....

Hard to believe it was only a 4 year old event the first time I went. VMD has an ageless feel to it...

AMA Vintage Cycle days
 
Guys,
Is it too late to get a place for this event? Do we ride up or trailer up? I was checking out the AMA site f or info and gleaned this
VMD11 Weekend General Admission-Advance Price good for Friday July22, 2011
through Sunday July24,2011 is like $35. For this you get open parking grand stand seating. The number for further info is 800-643-6466
The Flat tracks are to be held at the Ashland County Fairgrounds....as I recall a little rain forced them to cancel disappointing competitors and fans alike...The event is slated for Friday July 22,2011 some time after 1900 or 7:00 p.m. and they can be contacted at 1-419-289-0466.
I for one hope its not too late to make this event....last year was my first event there and was a mighty fine time. We have done other Spring related race venues over the years,like Daytona but like so many some became "unhappy" enough with the host track, accommodations, promoters and the local authority having jurisdiction......it just wasn't the time had in Ohio.....add to the fact there were actual curves to go round on the trip up....kept my attention....
Rick if you have an idea you want to do this one lets gtg and figure it out....I am ready for this one......maybe Terry and Mike would like to do it too...We might could luck up and kook up with "Dr C" again...
Rod
p.s.
I'll gladly offer use of the truck.....it will be ready to roll
