AHRMA’s first-ever vintage and post-vintage enduro happens July 21-24, 2016, at the All Brands Motorcycle Event at McKee’s Sky Ranch in Terra Alta, West Virginia. Sponsored by the Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau, the West Virginia Motorcycle Safety Program and AHRMA, the event is held at vintage bike enthusiast and former motocross racer Tom McKee’s 200-acre dirt bike refuge deep in the mountains of West Virginia.
Four-time AMA National Enduro Champion and Husqvarna rider Terry Cunningham will be this year’s Grand Marshal, with classic offroad motorcycles competing in AHRMA National Cross Country and National Vintage and Post Vintage Motocross races.
Events begin on July 21 with the Dual Sport Ride, a three-hour, moderately challenging ride offering mountain trails and varied terrain from single track to unimproved dirt roads, with elevation changes and stream crossings. The Adventure Ride course, tailor-made for bigger adventure bikes, is mostly dirt and gravel back roads that wind across the area. There’s also an 80-mile road run for street and touring enthusiasts, plus an old-fashioned field meet, and the West Virginia Motorcycle Safety Program folks will have a riding simulator on hand, as well.
The weekend will include a swap meet, a vintage bike display, motorcycle art by John Panek, plus a photo exhibit by Karl Jarvis. Entry is only $10 a day, or $30 for the entire weekend. If you like vintage dirt racing, don’t miss this event. More info: mckeeskyranch.com or ahrma.org. MC
