Two-wheel enthusiasts are invited to the American Motorcyclist Association¹s (AMA) Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum this summer for the 4th annual Japanese Motorcycle Saturday on June 6, 2009, and the 4th annual British & European Motorcycle Saturday on August 22, 2009. Located on the AMA campus in Pickerington, Ohio, just a few miles east of Columbus, the Museum is the country¹s premier showcase of motorcycling heritage and history.
Both events are expected to attract hundreds of riders, and will feature
un-judged bike shows and seminars from collectors and experts. The 4th
annual Japanese Motorcycle Saturday on June 6 will showcase a wide variety
of motorcycles representing decades of metric design and engineering
ingenuity. From sportbikes to café racers to tourers, every bike style is
welcome. Enthusiasts can ride in on a classic Japanese bike or simply stop
by to admire the vintage machines. Last year a 1983 Honda CB1100R and an
early 1980s Yamaha RZ500 two-stroke were highlights of the event.
Later in the summer, the Museum will host the 4th annual British & European
Motorcycle Saturday on August 22. Plenty of Ducatis, Triumphs, Nortons,
BMWs, Aprilias, Moto Guzzis and other marques that are sure to impress will
be on display for the event. The spotlight at British & European Motorcycle
Saturday was stolen last year by the Ducati Riders of Ohio Club, with over
20 members riding in for the event one on Ducati¹s finest, the
Desmosedici. This year¹s showcase promises to feature equally compelling
Admission for each Classic Motorcycle Saturday event is only $10 and
includes access to all museum exhibits, including ³MotoStars: Celebrities +
Motorcycles,² an installation spotlighting a number of the world¹s most
well-known enthusiasts, and ³Awesome-Ness,² chronicling the career of the
legendary Arlen Ness.
