2018 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Fall Bike Night in Pickerington, Ohio

The Saturday AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Spring Bike Night, sponsored by Nationwide, features an open house at the Hall of Fame museum, which houses the bikes and highlights the achievements of hundreds of Hall of Famers.

Music, vendors, activities and more are part of the evening's offerings.

On Friday, May 17, KTM will offer street and touring model demo rides departing from the AMA campus from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

On May 18, the demo rides will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with rides wrapping up prior to the start of the bike night.

The KTM truck and motorcycle models will be on display during the Bike Night festivities, with KTM staff members on hand. Information about the demo rides and requirements for going on a test ride can be found at www.ktm.com/us/events/us/ride-orange-street-demo-Columbus.

"At Spring Bike Night, you can hang out with fellow motorcyclists while getting acquainted with the AMA and checking out the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame," AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson said. "This event also will give you a chance to view some of KTM's street and touring motorcycles. And come hungry, because food trucks will be onsite selling some delicious meals."

On the main floor of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, visitors will find a display of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Class of 2018: AMA National Enduro Champion Terry Cunningham, stunt rider Gary Davis, flat track and road racing tuner Skip Eaken, MotoGP World Champion Nicky Hayden, flat track racer Clifford "Corky" Keener, and pioneering motorcyclist Mary McGee.

On the museum's lower level is an exhibit honoring the 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.

Also on the lower level is a collection of more than 1,000 motorcycle-inspired toys.

Food vendors include The Cheesy Truck (www.thecheesytruck.com/menu) and Schmidt's Sausage Truck (www.schmidthaus.com/sausage-truck-menu).

All proceeds from Bike Night benefit the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The nonprofit AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame was established in 1998 by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation to honor the legends and heroes of American motorcycling and highlight their achievements and contributions to motorcycling.
