Motorcycle Legends to be honoured for their contribution to motorcycling history
This fall, 10 legends and champions will be honoured at the 12th Annual Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Reunion.

“Every era of motorcycling in Canada has its legendary men and women whose passion, voluntarism, organizational skill, competitive drive, bravery and sacrifice has made a positive impact on the world of motorcycling,” explains Dave Munroe, Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Chair.
