PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame invites all motorcyclists to its Fall Bike Night from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 28 at the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association in Pickerington, just 14 miles east of downtown Columbus.
The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Fall Bike Night features an open house at the Hall of Fame museum, which enshrines the bikes and achievement of hundreds of Hall of Famers.
"Bike Night provides a great opportunity for the community to get acquainted with the AMA and with the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame while hanging out with fellow motorcyclists," AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson said. "Vintage bikes will be on display, and there will be music and some excellent food trucks on hand."

In addition to dozens of motorcycles on the upper floor commemorating Hall of Fame inductees, the museum currently features the exhibit "Six Days — U.S. International Six Days Enduro Teams and the Chase for the World Trophy," celebrating the history of U.S. competition at the FIM ISDE, capped by the 2016 title in the FIM World Trophy division. The display includes the four bikes ridden by the 2016 ISDE champions, along with Kurt Caselli's 2013 ISDE bike, Hall of Famer Dick Burleson's Husqvarna and Hall of Famer Jeff Fredette's Kawasaki.
The event also includes a display by the Columbus Area Vintage Motorcycle Group. Motorcyclists are encouraged to ride their vintage street bikes to the event, but all bikes are welcome.
Food vendors include Mega Bites and Russo's Wood Fired Pizza. And a selection of beer from North High Brewing will be available for purchase.
Music will be provided by Capitol City Sound.
