The following is from Road America…
Make sure to mark your calendars as Road America’s Vintage MotoFest has moved to the MotoAmerica Series Superbike Weekend May 29-31.
The true spirit of Vintage MotoFest is the bike show on Saturday, May 30, which includes a ride-in bike show and competition showcasing the greatest in classic style and fresh customization, plus all that is unusual and incredible. If a century’s worth of two-wheel machinery isn’t enough, the day will also showcase an arm-wrestling tournament, craft beer tasting, live bands and stunt shows.
“It’s everything you would see in a museum,” said Road America president and general manager, Mike Kertscher. “Only here you see them amongst all of the exciting on-track action that the MotoAmerica Series brings. This event is a true destination for enthusiasts everywhere because now there is something for everyone and we encourage folks to ride-in, stay in our campgrounds and enjoy the full experience of the weekend.”
Enthusiasts and spectators will find several bikes competing for space alongside dealers, and vendors of all things motorcycling. This year’s Vintage MotoFest includes a craft beer tasting from several local breweries, live bands, and an arm-wrestling tournament – where over 100 of the best ‘puller’s from the region will be in competition. The Twin Stunts motorcycle stunt show will also be performing throughout the weekend in the paddock.
Winners of the ride-in bike show are chosen by an experienced team of judges who will be overseeing all kinds of categories, including Best Race Bike, Best Chopper and Best Rat Bike. Your unique motorcycle could win a custom trophy.
The on track action all gets rolling on Friday, May 29 and continues through Sunday, May 31, as MotoAmerica riders will blast by on Road America’s high-speed straights, multiple turns and undulating terrain as part of the MotoAmerica Series Superbike Weekend.
So fill up the tank and dust off those leathers for a winding ride to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, for the motorcycle celebration of the year. Visitors traveling northbound can experience American roadways at their finest, with a scenic view of the Northern Kettle Moraine region. Once you arrive at Road America, riders and aficionados alike can expect a mix from café racers and vintage cycles, to fresh off the dealership lot.
