Vintage dirt bike fans won’t want to miss the 6th Annual All Brands Motorcycle Event at McKee’s Sky Ranch, July 27-30, 2017. Held at vintage bike enthusiast and former motocross racer Tom McKee’s 200-acre dirt bike refuge in the mountains outside Terra Alta, West Virginia, the four-day event features three days of AHRMA vintage offroad racing including Vintage Cross Country, Enduro, Vintage MX, Post Vintage Cross Country and Post Vintage MX. Former ISDT gold medallist Fred Hoess is this year’s Grand Marshall, and he’ll be racing as well, defending his title win from last year!

The weekend kicks off Thursday morning, July 27, 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. Later that day riders can also participate in the Adventure Ride, tailor-made for bigger adventure bikes and riding mostly the dirt and gravel back roads that wind across the area. On Friday there’s 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 rides are open to everyone, with a $10 fee.

Sponsored by the Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau, the West Virginia Motorcycle Safety Program and AHRMA, 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: or
