An Invitation From the AMA
When the AMA (American Motorcycle Association) calls you answer, right?
The AMA is easily the largest motorsports organization in the world, overseeing 80 professional and more than 4,000 amateur events every year. The AMA also maintains and operates the Motorcycle Hall of Fame located near Columbus, Ohio.
So, when they contacted us 4 months ago and invited us as VIP guest speakers at their largest annual event, we stood up and took notice.
Lisa and I have just spent three incredible days at the Vintage Motorcycle Day's event surrounded by motorcycle mania. Even if you've never been, you should seriously consider adding it to your next years schedule.
The VMD (Vintage Motorcycle Days) is an impressive event held each year in Lexington, Ohio. Spreading itself across more than 300 acres, the event has a long and rich history as one of motorcycling’s most fun and feel-good-events.
It doesn't matter what type of rider you are, what brand you ride or what turns you on, there is something for everyone. Activities include the AMA Vintage Grand Championship, which features road racing, motocross, hare scramble, and dirt track racing. If that's not enough, then there's a motorcycle swap meet with memorabilia and bikes from all eras.
Annual bike exhibits include, the American Motor Drome Wall of Death, product demos and motorcycle experts from, and for, every brand imaginable. All the proceeds benefit the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
It was a real honor and a pleasure to spend time with two of the most influential professionals in the motorcycle industry, AMA CEO and President ,Rob Dingman and their Chief Operations Officer, Jeff Massey.
Aware that we needed our 'A game on', we ran two presentations and shared our story with 200 plus guests and had a great time doing it.
We owe a big thank you to all the AMA's staff that made us feel like part of the family, but special thanks to Serena Van Dyke for all her efforts in getting us to the event and making sure things ran smoothly.
Of course, a big thank you goes out to all those whom attended our seminars. Ride far, ride safe. See you down the road.
