The AMA’s Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is inviting vintage motorcycle fans to a pair of upcoming events.

The Pickerington, Ohio museum will host the International CBX Owner’s Association on Jan. 24 with special guest Geoff Smale.

The British racer won the 2000 British Earlystocks 1300 production class title on a Honda CBX and is one of 12 racers to have lapped over 100 mph in the Isle of Man TT riding a sidecar, both as the driver and as the passenger.

All motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to the event which will include a visit to the museum’s exhibits. The ICOA event will be held in conjunction with the club’s winter tech rally in Columbus Ohio, Jan. 24-25.

Two weeks after the ICOA event, the Museum will welcome the Penton Owner’s Group for its eighth annual Penton Day, Feb. 7. The event will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hall of Famer John Penton’s record-setting transcontinental run on a BMW. Penton’s son, another member of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame and a member of its board, Jack Penton will host the event.
