Featured Events

March 4

This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Daytona Bike Week, which runs March 4-13. The racing kicks off on Saturday, March 5, with the Daytona Supercross, followed by Flat Track racing on the 10th and 11th on the Daytona Flat Track outside turns 1 and 2 of the super speedway. And there’s more good news — for 2016, the Daytona 200 returns, featuring American SportBike Racing Association’s (ASRA) 600cc sport bikes racing on Daytona’s famed road course.

March 5

Back for its sixth year, the Modern Classics Motorcycle Show will feature the competition machines of “Motocross, Trials and Enduros.” About half of the 100 show bikes come from a featured category, and this year attendees will enjoy a variety of dirt machines from the 1960s through the 1990s. More highlights include a display of the very first production Britten (SN P0001), and also the return of artist Makoto Endo, who last year entertained the crowd with a rendition of a 1931 Indian Scout. Check out the Friday Night Modern Classics “Kick-Start” Party from 7-10 p.m. at the show’s home, Martin Motorsports in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.

March 18

Be sure to check out the growing NOLA Vintage Grand Prix, March 18-20, at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana. This three-day event features rounds 3 and 4 of the AHRMA vintage motorcycle road race series, along with a swap meet, vintage bike show, great local food, a vendor area and more.

April 2

Join the folks from the Clubman’s All-British Show and Swap Meet, back for the 29th year. Held at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds in San Jose, California, this year’s feature is a salute to the “Triples of BSA and Triumph” (BSA Rocket 3’s, Triumph T150’s and T160’s). This year’s raffle bike is a sharp 1971 BSA B50T. The show is Saturday, April 2, with the “Morning After Ride” on Sunday.
