The main floor of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame celebrates Hall of Fame inductees — the heroes of the track, road, trails and halls of government who have elevated the sport to new heights. The incredible machines that help represent their accomplishments include a Wayne Rainey Superbike; Gary Nixon’s Formula 750 racebike; one-of-a-kind Craig Vetter bikes, Doug Henry’s YZM400, which is the bike that started the four-stroke motocross revolution; Denis Manning’s 23-foot-long Tenacious II streamliner, and many, many more. Each has a unique story to tell about a member of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Includes tons of exhibits, artwork, and history.
