"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.
