In a very comfortable and casual setting at the 27th Annual Indiana Motorcycle Expo, the men and women who were “pioneers” in Indiana’s motorcycle world will share their stories and remembrances of the early days of motorcycling. These moderated sessions will be tailored to various topics and themes, but will be free flowing as these amazing people re-tell their stories from “back in the day”. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, you won’t want to miss your opportunity to connect with the men and women who “pioneered” the sport and industry we currently enjoy.
Questions from the audience will be welcomed, and in fact, are encouraged.
Following the sessions, you’ll have an opportunity to talk one-on-one with these very Pioneers and view a display of their private collections of memorabilia which will include one of a kind bikes, personal photo collections, trophies, riding apparel and more.
