Motorcycle Show

The 13th Annual Riding Into History Motorcycle Concours
Riding Into History, one of America’s premier vintage motorcycle events, will return to the beautiful World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Florida on May 18-19, 2012. Mitch Boehm, Editor and Publisher of Moto Retro Illustrated, and former Motorcyclist Magazine Editor, will serve as Grand Marshal. Larry Meeker will once again serve as Chairman the event.
The weekend will feature the Concours d’Elegance on Saturday, with a charity ride to the event leaving from BMW Motorcycles of Jacksonville. The Grand Marshal’s Historic Lunch Ride to St. Augustine, led by Boehm, and the Grand Marshal’s Dinner at the Legends Grill in the WGV, featuring a talk by Boehm, will be held on Friday.
All of the proceeds from Riding Into History will benefit the Jacksonville-based
Wounded Warrior Project. To date, Riding Into History has raised over $250,000 for charity.

Thousands of spectators are once again expected to enjoy the event, which also ncludes exhibitors, entertainment, clubs and a variety of food. Admission is still only $10 at the gate for the Concours.
