The AMA's Vintage Motorcycle Days at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is scheduled for 26-28 July 2024.

If you're going to be traveling to the area, you'll want to book your hotel as soon as humanly possible: a lot of locations close to the track are already sold out for that weekend.

Last year I booked around this time and had no trouble getting my preferred hotel. This year I'm about 16 miles away - not terrible but a little less convenient.

Right now there are four rooms left at the Best Western Executive Inn in Mount Gilead, OH, due south of Mid-Ohio. The rate is $135/night, breakfast is included, you can reserve with no charge, and they have an 8.0/10 rating. (I'm not on their payroll, I swear.) A lot of available places are $200 and up.

Who else is planning to go? :)

I have been going to Mid Ohio every year for the past 10 years, (except foe the year cancled due to covid). Always road my V65 Magna, about 500 miles each way. Do to my situation, I only get 1 big ride/vacation a year. For 2024 it will be Barber. Never been there. Just feel its time for something different.

Going to Barber is like going to Motorcycle Mecca...everyone should make the pilgrimage at least once in their life.

I’m planning to go to both VMD and Barber again this year. VMD is better if you are looking for KZ items, but Barber is usually overall a more pleasant experience. The road racing at Barber is more interesting as well but the off road racing is better at VMD. YMMV.

We're planning to be at VMD.  We're beginning to lighten our inventory of duplicate Z1 & air-cooled inline four KZ. stuff.  We're unlikely to do another resto unless the right bike drops into our laps for a song.  We only need to maintain what we have for another few years, until age forces an end to our Z1 collect / resto / Ridin' hobby.  We also have a little of the bike shop buyout inventory left from last year to sell.

We camp at VMD in our swap meet spot(s).

Undecided about Barber.

Good Ridin'

I've never been to Barber either but definitely want to go.
