THE MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAME MUSEUM ACCELERATES INTO NEW YEAR

2007-02-12 19:48
The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, America's premiere
showcase of motorcycling heritage and history, has announced a full schedule
of events for 2007, beginning with the Annual Fundraising Breakfast.
Featuring Harley-Davidson design expert and Motorcycle Hall of Fame member
Willie G. Davidson as the honored speaker, the breakfast will launch a year
of dynamic Museum activities.

From the October 5 - 6 Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction and Concours
d'Elegance Weekend to celebrations of favorite motorcycle marques, every
Museum visit is an opportunity to experience award-winning exhibits and
learn memorable stories. Located adjacent to Interstate 70, just minutes
from Columbus, Ohio, the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum's exhibits and
events take place in over 15,000 square feet of gallery space, surround by
23 scenic acres.

The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum engages visitors by bringing the stories
behind the famous machines and faces to life. Priceless motorcycles,
memorabilia, historic images and unusual artifacts are presented in each of
the Museum's three galleries. Many of the exhibits feature interactive
elements that invite kids of all ages to touch - such as the current
"Motocross America" exhibit where tomorrow's racing stars can try on the
latest motocross gear and prepare for a "photo op" on the victory podium.

All 2007 events at the non-profit Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum are open to
the public and many are free of charge:

of America's original action sport through this expansive exhibit. Featured
