AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast – Erik Buell
What a well kept secret the AMA Hall of Fame breakfast is. Where else can you meet and have breakfast with a couple of dozen AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famers during the madness of Daytona Bike Week.
Every year the AMA holds this breakfast in Daytona during Bike Week and I am surprised at how few people are even aware of this fund raising event open to the public. This year it was held on Friday at the swanky 500 Club facility in the infield of the Daytona International Speedway track. The guest speaker was Erik Buell who gave a wonderful recounting of his history with motorcycles, racing and Harley-Davidson. He also unveiled his stunning and technologically leading new street motorcycle. It is limited to a 100 bike production worldwide.
In addition to Erik there were many other famous people in attendance, some of which include Jack Penton, Mike Corbin, Cris Somer-Simmons, Don Emde, Mike and Margret Wilson, and many, many more. I am honored to be a member of the AMA motorcycle Hall of Fame as the publisher of American Iron Harley Magazine, Motorcycle Bagger Harley magazine and RoadBike motorcycle cruiser magazine.
