Date: July 10 – 12, 2020
Location: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, 7721 Steam Corners Road, Lexington, Ohio 44904
Description: For 72 hours in July, central Ohio is the center of the vintage motorcycling universe.
It was 1947. You just picked up a one of the last Knuckleheads to roll out of Milwaukee, an EL 74. With the hand-shift four-speed transmission, wraparound oil tank and chrome accents, you were the king of style — and king of the road.
Or, perhaps it was the summer of 1968, and you were riding one of the all-time utilitarian motorcycles, a Norton Commando. With the punchy 750cc power plant and next generation frame geometry, you ruled the twisty back roads.
Then again, maybe it was a 1974. You were 15 years old and came home from school one afternoon to find a Honda CR125 Elsinore sitting in the driveway, next to your dad, grinning ear to ear.
Memories like these make it obvious why we call them “vintage” motorcycles. And there’s one place where you’ll find these memories come alive — a bike, a part or even a racer, pitching it sideways in turn one or dueling through the esses.
That’s AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, held at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Morrow County, Ohio.
Every year, tens of thousands enthusiasts join the AMA and the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, and nearly 1,000 independent vendors at vintage motorcycling’s biggest bash. The event includes racing, the country’s largest motorcycle swap meet, seminars, stars from the sports past and present, bike shows and more, all designed to recapture a simpler time and remind us what’s fundamentally cool about riding motorcycles.

Description: With me being from New England and all, Laconia is absolutely my favorite of the Best Motorcycle Events 2020.
Today, ask any rider, “why New Hampshire?” and the answers are remarkably similar. Scenery, fresh air and accessibility. Where else can you ride up and down mountains, through quaint, New England towns, around magnificent lakes and along miles of oceanfront? All within 100 miles, too. On top of that, New Hampshire has the 5th highest motorcycle registrations, per capita and residents and businesses alike embrace the 2-wheeled visitors that embark here every June.
Once here, riders enjoy the sights and sounds of this national motorcycle rally and can experience all of the thrills you would expect at AMA sanctioned events such as Hill Climbs, vintage and super motor races, and stunt shows. Laconia Motorcycle Week also has demo rides from some of the biggest major motorcycle manufacturers including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Yamaha and more! The area bustles with live music of all kinds, bike shows, and vendors featuring the latest and greatest in the motorcycle industry. For 2020, we are proud to welcome the American Flat Track Laconia Short Track event to the brand-new .25-mile track at NH Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 13th. Race fans can enjoy camping at Motorcycle Nirvana and be right in the center of the racing action for the vintage races, flat track, and 97th Annual Loudon Classic.
So, there’s a lot to like about the deep and storied relationship between New Hampshire and riding – No wonder many have dubbed the state’s motto “Live Free and Ride®!” For more information on visiting New Hampshire for Laconia Motorcycle Week, check us out at LaconiaMCWeek.com.
