Erik Buell will be joining the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame at the 23rd annual fundraiser breakfast at the Daytona International Speedway. Buell will be speaking about his experience in the motorcycle industry, and will also be signing autographs with other hall of famers.
Buell, who founded Buell Motorcycles nearly two decades ago, is still a driving force in the motorcycle industry. Buell Motorcycles stopped producing motorcycles in 2009, but Buell still continues to innovate with his Buell Racing Team. Buell will be talking about his 20 plus years in the motorcycle industry, as well as his thoughts on the future.
“For me, motorcycling has always been about the journey, about the people, about the ideas behind the machines, and it will be great to connect with enthusiasts at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Breakfast at Daytona fundraiser,” Buell said. “And who knows? I may have a surprise or two to announce by then.”
The fundraising breakfast at Daytona will be on Friday, March 11, at a new location inside the Daytona 500 Club. There will be a silent auction on items related to the Hall of Fame, as well as an autograph signing session with Buell and other Motorcycle Hall of Famers.
“Erik Buell is a Hall of Famer not only for his innovative and dogged pursuit of motorcycling excellence, but also because the bikes he build were evocative and impressive enough to earn one of the most passionate fan bases in all of motorcycling,” said Jeff Heininger, chairman of the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation. “Few people have Erik’s perspective on the parts of America’s motorcycle history that are still being written today, and I, for one, can’t wait to hear what he has to say.”
