In addition to the traditional bike classes this year we are adding two new classes; vintage café racers and modern classics. The modern classics are those Japanese motorcycles who have not yet reached an age maturity to be classified as vintage. Since so many of new and prospective new members have these under aged classics. We want to extend an opportunity to them to participate in one of the most amazing VJMC bike shows of the year. Please be sure to welcome these newcomers and encourage their participation in all our activities.
