I have never been and don't know what to expect, but will be attending with at least one other buddy of mine.

July 20-22, 2012, Lexington, Ohio.

* Vintage Motorcycle Days homepage
* Schedule and Directions
* Swap Meet Layout PDF

See you there?

mid ohio

I've been going about five years now.Mid Ohio Vintage weekend has changed a lot as far as the participation of motorcycle companies and attendance.The quality of exhibits has declined.Back in '08 there were more than a dozen different brands you could ride,with each manufacturer providing several models providing no less than 100 possibilities.This year only Kawasaki, Can Am{which I don't consider a motorcycle} an Kyco ?? a scooter of some sort was there.I know the economy has tanked,but seriously what a lost opportunity for potential sales of new bikes-lost.It's not like people have no money, when you drive on the freeway if you don't move @ 75 you bout get ran over by a woman in an SUV on her cell phone;gas is no setback;fast food restaurants are packed.I don't get it
Mid Ohio still has the best swap meet for parts imaginable and this year was no let down,I will be back.I saw more complete old bikes than ever before,traded for the R100RT that I just got and had great fun with my buds.Just hope the event returns to it's former glory.Can't help but wonder if the new management had something to do with it as well.

Yeah, I ditto your sentiments

Yeah, I ditto your sentiments and your observations.
I enjoy the Cafe Racer tent, the swap meet and the time spent with friends. I just hope they can turn it around and make it a "don't miss it" event again.

Here are some photos from my visit this year - 2012
