Vintage Events in the Mid-Atlantic region

OK folks HELP ME OUT HERE, OK? I need airheads (and thier riders!) and any other vintage machines, for both these uncoming events, I know you're out there soo....

Here is some info on two vintage events of note that I am either hosting or involved with promoting and working on. Both take place this summer in West Virginia and I'd like to get as many as possible participating in one or both! Also please pass this info on to anyone who you think might be interested.

The first event, which I have been hosting for the past 2 years, is the Festival of Fives celebrating the venerable BMW /5 series made between late 69 thru 73 that takes place in Seneca Rocks WV June 13-15 at the Princesses Snowbird campground run by Yokumís Vacationland. This is will be the12th year of the event and due to declining numbers over the past three years Iíve decided to open it up to all vintage BMWís as well as any any make vintage bikes and/or those that have an interest in them.

No Fees (other than camping, motel or cabin rentals) and no planed events as yet but if I get enough interest Iíll have some door prizes and perhaps lead a nice vintage ride thru the surrounding hills. For more information contact me at [email protected] and I would also like to get a head count.

For camping, motel or cabins rentals plus links to area attractions contact Yokumís at

The second event is again a vintage event that is part of the WV MountainFest Motorcycle Rally that takes place in Morgantown WV, on July 24-27. I landed a gig doing photography for them this year as well as working with the Vintage events coordinator. This is becoming one of the premier motorcycle rallies on the east coast, last year there were over 110 vintage bikes spanning the years from the early 1920ís thru the 60ís and 70ís. The main event hotel is the Waterfront Hotel in downtown Morgantown which also hosts the vintage display: Besides the display there are two planned vintage rides, a Saturday parade thru Morgantown and on Sunday a vintage Grand Prix thru the wharf district of the town. If you have any interest in vintage bikes this is one event you should not miss!

As part of the planning committee for the vintage portion of the event I am looking for folks interested in having their machine in the vintage display in the event hotelís grand ballroom and anyone interested in participating in the Vintage Grand Prix, which is a very low key affair, more for fun than any real competition. I am especially interested in BMWís and other European Machines; if we can get enough then Iím going to suggest we have a European specific area set aside in the show. I am also looking for volunteers to help with the vintage event in any capacity. More information on MountainFest available at the link below

Again if interested in either event email me at [email protected] and let me know which event youíre interested in and if you plan on attending along with particulars on your vintage machine.


I ride because I look funny walking!
