Early bird ticket sales extended for 2015 Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame event

Toronto ON – September 09, 2015 – The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is extending the sales of early bird tickets to September 30th, 2015 and has made a change to the event proceedings for the evening of November 7th, 2015.

At last year’s Edmonton event the ceremony and dinner were two separate functions. While the Edmonton event had incredible success, the Toronto Banquet Committee acknowledged the motorcycle community in Ontario saying that they were comfortable with the original format, with a combined Banquet, Reunion and Induction Ceremony. As such, the event has reverted to its original format and look forward to welcoming the motorcycling community once again. A complete schedule of the activities taking place on November 7th is available at

11 legends and champions will be honoured at the Tenth Annual Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Reunion, which takes place on November 7th, 2015 at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel & Conference Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

“This accomplished group of riders have worked at a feverish pace over the years and achieved excellence in a wide range of competitive disciplines or have changed the world of motorcycling for the better in Canada,” noted Chair Michael Harwood. “My fellow Hall of Fame Directors and volunteers join me in welcoming the Class of 2015 to the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame and honouring them with the consideration and respect that they so rightly deserve.”                           

Early Bird Tickets for the Eighth Annual Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Reunion are available at until September 30th, 2015, when regular pricing will come into effect. Sponsors of the event are eligible for reduced pricing and complimentary tickets in some cases.

Founded by Bar and Hedy Hodgson in 1999, the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame preserves and promotes Canadian motorcycle history for the benefit of the motorcycling community and public. Sponsored in part by the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC), the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is a non-profit association with charitable status. It is governed by an independent board of volunteer directors representing every region of the country. Since the first induction banquet in Toronto in 2006, over 100 distinguished motorcyclists and organizations have been inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
