Honda CB160s work their way through “The Attitudes” at Miller Motorsports Park. 

Two major events coming down the pike are Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, and the 7th Annual Bonneville Vintage GP at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

First up is Vintage Motorcycle Days (VMD) July 20-22. 2012. The granddaddy of American vintage motorcycle happenings, this is the event that proved the vintage and classic motorcycle scene really had legs. Past years have seen crowds of 50,000-plus, the event drawing vintage bike fans from across the country and around the world.

Happenings at VMD include the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Bike Show, factory demo rides, club corrals, and of course the largest motorcycle swap meet in North America, covering an astounding 35 acres!

Featured marque this year is actually more of a category, celebrating two of motorcycling’s most famous groups, the Rockers and the Mods. Both groups will be showcased at VMD, with a special tent, machines, memorabilia and history displays celebrating the Rockers and Mods and the machines they made famous, café racers and scooters. There will also be vintage racing with the AMA Vintage Grand Championships, this year presented by Moto Armory. Importantly, all proceeds from VMD go to support the AMA’s Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. More info at the American Motorcyclist Association website.
