International Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet and Bike Show in Eustis, FL - March 8-9, 2013

Vintage Motorcycle Show & Swap Meet in Hanford, CA - May 18, 2013.

AHRMA Vintage Motorcycle Classic in Elkhart Lake, WI - June 6-9, 2013

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days in Lexington, OH - It happened July 20-22, 2012. 2013 dates not set yet.

Harvest Classic in Luckenbach, TX - October 25-26, 2013

If you find yourself in Southern California, the little Danish town of Solvang has a motorcycle museum worth seeing.

I wish. The only one I've been to is the museum in Solvang. I go to the MotoGP in Monterey every year, but vintage stuff isn't the focus of the event.

Every time I hear of an event, I have something else I can't get out of. I wanted to go to the Hanford swap meet, but had to work. Just two weeks ago, they had an all British bike event at Castaic Lake in So Cal. But I was commited to work on a pit crew for a Nitro Funny Car (not that I'm complainin'). I would have added that to the list, but couldn't find a single mention of it on the web. I read it somewhere on advrider, but can't find it now.

MotoGP at Laguna Seca is an awesome event. in 2012, there were just over 52,000 people there on Saturday, with 137,000 total for the 3-day event. Anyone selling stuff seemed to be busy. You could barely even get into the Cycle Gear tent, and Arai had a line waiting to buy $600 helmets.

I think there are still drive-in camp spots available, which is probably cheaper than trying to find a hotel. They also have motorcyle camping on unimproved grass fields. We have a group of about 10 guys, and go in on a large spot to fit all of us.
