Everyone Is invited To After Party!
Everyone is invited to the 2019 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Fall Bike Night, offering free admission to the Hall of Fame museum, a bike show, exhibitions, live music, vendors and more from 5-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27. The event, which starts when AIMExpo closes for the day, will be on the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association, 13515 Yarmouth Drive, Pickerington, Ohio. This is just a short ride from the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
“During Bike Night, the campus is open to the community, giving everyone a chance to learn more about the AMA and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, while hanging out with fellow motorcyclists, enjoying food, entertainment and vendors,” says AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson.
The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Bike Show, presented by Old Bike Barn, includes classes for custom, classic and current bikes. Entry is a $5 donation to the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation. Bands will perform throughout the evening on the Old Bike Barn stage. National pro trials rider Sam Fastle will be demonstrating his motorcycle mastery at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Beer from North High Brewing will be available for purchase, as well as food from various food trucks.
In addition to dozens of motorcycles on the upper floor commemorating Hall of Fame inductees, the museum currently features the exhibit “Six Days – U.S. International Six Days Enduro Teams and the Chase for the World Trophy,” celebrating the history of U.S. competition at the FIM ISDE, capped by the 2016 title in the FIM World Trophy division. The display includes the four bikes ridden by the 2016 ISDE champions, along with Kurt Caselli’s 2013 ISDE bike, Dick Burleson’s Husqvarna and Jeff Fredette’s Kawasaki.
All proceeds from Bike Night benefit the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The AMA established the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998 to honor the legends and heroes of American motorcycling and highlight their achievements and contributions to motorcycling.
