Last call for the 2011 Road America Vintage Motorcycle Classic! Join Motorcycle Classics this weekend, June 10-12, 2011, at Road America race track in Elkhart Lake, Wis., for two days of AHRMA racing, a vintage swap meet and the Motorcycle Classics Road America Ride & Show.

Registration for the Motorcycle Classics Ride & Show starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 11, so make sure to get there early. The ride leaves at noon, and while we’re encouraging everyone to ride, you don’t have to ride to show. Judging starts at 4 p.m., with our awards ceremony starting at 5 p.m. Two trophies – Best Rider and Best of Show – will be given in each of five classes including European, British, Japanese, American and Custom, plus we’ll award a trophy for People’s Choice. The entry fee is $25 and includes a 1-year subscription to Motorcycle Classics and a Motorcycle Classics T-shirt. Additional bikes are $5.

Last year’s Ride & Show attracted a fantastic selection of classic machinery, ranging from Burt Richmond’s incredible Aermacchi Chimera to Joe Block’s stunning 1953 Ariel Square Four, painted Wedgewood Blue in celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation that year.

Burt Richmond's 1957 Aermacchi Chimera nabbed the People's Choice award at Road America in 2010. Nice.

So join us for our second Ride & Show on Saturday, June 11, and get ready for great vintage racing as AHRMA racers compete in rounds seven and eight of the CPL Systems National Historic Cup Roadrace Series, the National Vintage MX Series, the Race Tech National Post-Vintage Motocross Series, the Speed & Sport National Vintage Trials Series and the Penton Owners Group National Cross Country Series. See you there! – Richard Backus
