LEXINGTON, Ohio — Tyler, Dempson and Jerry Haney were enjoying music by Keith Jones and the Makeshifts in the sunshine Sunday in the infield of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki.
It was their first trip to the nation's grandest vintage motorcycle event.

The father and his two sons from Terre Haute, Ind., enjoy riding their Harleys together in their spare time.
“I talked them into coming with me to experience all this,” Tyler said. “I’m really into vintage bikes, and we all enjoy motorcycles so we decided to come and check it out.”
The three were taking a break and indulging in the entertainment, vendors, bike builders and clubs that filled the Old Bike Barn Crossroads this year.
Those attending AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days could enjoy five different live bands throughout the weekend.
“I love that everyone is just riding around on their motorcycles and having a good time,” Dempson said. “It’s unique, and we’re definitely coming back next year, but with our bikes.”
Brandon Sams and Matt Quiseneery, from Detroit, were exploring the vendor booths as they waited to watch a show at the Wall of Death.
“These Ural bikes are so cool,” Quinseneery said. “There’s just so much awesome stuff going on here.”
Brandon Sams and Matt Quiseneery browsed through vendors.
While Sams has attended Vintage Motorcycle Days five times, this was Quiseneery’s first year.
“I always used to come with my dad,” Sams said. “But I brought my buddy this year, and we’ve just had a good time hanging out and exploring everything like the infield.”
