A couple of weeks ago we talked about just a few of the highlights on our list of “Don’t Dare Miss” regional Vintage Bike Events. Last weekend we got to attend one of the the bigger ones on the list. New Jersey Motorsports Park, in Millville, NJ, was the site of NJMP’s Annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival. Held in conjunction with a full card of American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) races,
this event, in just its second year is still finding its legs, but nonetheless represents a great opportunity to celebrate the sights, sounds, and smells of vintage bikes.
The NJMP Vintage Bike Festival offers a complete menu of bike centric activities including a swap meet and a bike show presented by our friends at Motorcycle Classics magazine. Despite a substantial rainfall that dampened Friday’s activities, when we visited on Saturday bright sunny skies prevailed. In talking with attendees it was clear that this second event far surpassed the initial edition just one year ago and easy proximity to Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore should only allow the event to grow substantially in the future. Here’s hoping that’s exactly what happens and that we retain an important event on the vintage bike calendar right here in the Northeast corridor. We thought we’d share just a few photos from the weekend.
If you missed the NJMP Vintage Motorcycle Festival then you missed a good one. Hopefully we’ll see a “Third Annual” when 2015 calendars are issued in the fall!
Coming up next on our personal calendar: Vintage Motorcycle Daze in Blue Bell, Pa on August 9nd The Martin Moto Modern Classics Ride-In on August 30 in Boyertown. Keep ridng ’em, don’t hide ’em.
