The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame will welcome its Class of 2013 Oct. 18 and 19 in Las Vegas. The Green Valley Ranch Resort is hosting the event, which will include the induction ceremony and a public showcase of some classic bikes and motorcycle gear.
This year's Hall of Fame class features racing champions Ricky Carmichael, Danny Hamel, Randy Renfrow and Norm McDonald, in addition to Mike and Dianne Traynor, the founders of the wildly successful Ride For Kids fundraisers. Many of the motorcycles on display will be the same models that these Hall of Fame inductees rode during their days in motorsports, including several from Husqvarna, which is sponsoring the weekend.
"In a year when Husqvarna celebrates an amazing milestone with 110 years of motorcycling history, we're pleased to help showcase that heritage alongside the impressive accomplishments of the Hall of Fame Induction Class of 2013," said Jeffrey V. Heininger, chairman of the AMA Heritage Foundation.
The general public can get a look at the bikes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 during the Memorial Legends Reception. Fans will have an opportunity to listen to interviews with inductees and attend autograph sessions during this time.
