AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days to Celebrate MV Agusta2006-01-04 06:41
PICKERINGTON, OHIO -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced that MV Agusta will be the "Featured Marque" at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2006, to be held July 28-30 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
Founded in 1945, Meccanica Verghera Agusta is known for its sophisticated, elegant Italian design and attention to performance, as well as for a long string of world championships. MV Agusta will be celebrated at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2006 with an exhibit of classic motorcycles and memorabilia, with the cooperation of Cagiva U.S.A.
As in previous years, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will kick off a ten-day celebration of motorcycling at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, concluding with the AMA Honda Super Cycle Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire the following weekend, August 4-6.
In 2006, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will be held two weeks later than its usual mid-July weekend. Other sporting events during the summer of 2006 prompted what is expected to be a one-year departure from the traditional dates.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, which attracts an estimated 40,000 enthusiasts each year, benefits the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, and in 2006 will include the all-brands AMA Swapmeet, bike shows, a full slate of American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) racing, and other features to be announced in the coming months.
The "Grand Marshal" of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2006 will be announced soon.
