Motorcycle Ohio 25th Anniversary This Saturday
The celebration begins this Saturday at 10 a.m. at the American Motorcyclist Association Motorcycle Hall of Fame campus.

In recognition of this significant milestone for one of motorcycling’s most important safety advocates, we’ll also provide free admission to the Hall of Fame for AMA members and $5 admission for non-members 18 and older.”
“I am proud and honored to be a part of such an important celebration,” says OCJS Executive Director, Karhlton F. Moore. “Motorcycle Ohio has accomplished so much since its inception, and we are committed to many more years of working with our traffic safety partners on education, enforcement and engineering efforts to reduce motorcycle deaths and injuries.”
