Pioneers of Hoosier Motorcycling
In a very comfortable and casual setting at the ALL NEW 29th Annual Indiana Motorcycle & Powersports 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.
Abate Motorcycle Classes
ABATE of Indiana Motorcycle Rider Courses
ABATE of Indiana has trained more than 130,000 Hoosier motorcyclists to ride over the past 40 years. Beginning in 1979, before there was a state-legislated program in Indiana, ABATE saw the benefits of riders having the skills and strategies to make their travels safer and more enjoyable. If you know someone that rides a motorcycle, it is likely they have taken a course with ABATE, and now it’s your turn. Registration for ABATE classes for beginning or experienced riders opens at the Indiana Motorcycle & Powersports Exposition at the Indiana State Fairgrounds February 14th through the 16th.
