Reviews and Notices of Upcoming Classic Motorcycle Shows and Events
Riders in the Motorcycle Classics Ride & Show line up for a group photo below the 40-foot observation tower at Broughton Sheboygan Marsh Park during the 2013 Road America Motorcycle Classic.
Join Motorcycle Classics at the 4th Annual Road America Vintage Motorcycle Classic, June 7-9, 2013, at Road America race track in Elkhart Lake, Wis. Nicknamed “America’s National Park of Speed,” Road America has legendary status in the American racing scene, the four-mile road circuit drawing world-class racing since it was built in 1955.
Vintage motorcycle racing returns for 2013, with rounds 9 and 10 of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA)/CPL Systems National Historic Cup Roadrace series, plus the classic bike swap meet and club corrals. We’ll be there as we have from the beginning, hosting the Motorcycle Classics Ride & Show, which typically draws around 50-60 great vintage bikes. We kick off with a leisurely 40-mile ride through the surrounding Wisconsin countryside, and end with our show. If you haven’t been there before, Road America is smack in the middle of Wisconsin’s famed Kettle Moraine, a glacially formed geological oddity defined by sudden depressions and hidden valleys. It’s great riding, with breathtaking scenery and spectacular roads.
Registration for the Motorcycle Classics Ride & Show starts at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, so make sure to get there early. The ride leaves at noon, and while we always encourage everyone to ride, you don’t have to ride to show your bike. Judging starts at 2 p.m., with our awards ceremony starting at 4 p.m. Trophies for Best Rider and Best Restored will be given in each of five classes including European, British, Japanese, American and Custom, plus we’ll award our annual Editor’s Choice trophy. The entry fee is $30 and includes a 1-year subscription to Motorcycle Classics and a Motorcycle Classics T-shirt. Additional bikes are $5 each.
