Kenda, STACYC and Iron Pony To Bring Kids Playground to VMD

Kenda Tire has been announced as the Official Tire of the 2021 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days and will partner with STACYC balance bikes and Iron Pony to offer a unique opportunity for young riders. 

“We’re pumped to be back at Vintage Motorcycle Days after last year’s hiatus,” said Dave Komoroski of Kenda Powersports. “It’s become a real family reunion for us. Kenda engineering, marketing and logistics are all based here in Ohio, and we’re all bringing bikes to VMD.” 

“Most of us started working in the motorcycle industry because we love bikes,” Komoroski continued, “and VMD allows us to leave our desks for a few days and get a reminder of why we work hard. There’s so much motorcycle passion on display, and we’re bringing just as much.”

Kenda staff members will ride and race throughout the weekend, too. 

“My boss took first in the Modern 2-Stroke MX class a few years back,” Komoroski said, “and I think he’s coming to get another gold this year. We’ll have Kenda folks running races all through the VMD weekend. Keep an eye out for the jerseys!” 

The kids moto playground will be the first of its kind for VMD.

“STACYC will have a demo course set up for younger kids who are new to two wheels,” Komoroski said, “and Kenda will be running a more advanced, bring-your-own-bike time trials for kids, all on a sweet little serpentine track. We’ll crown the champions on Sunday.” 

“We’re excited to welcome Kenda Tire back to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days this year,” said AMA Editorial Director Mitch Boehm. “We love their enthusiasm for the event, and with all the kids that show up at AMA VMD each year, the Kenda Kids area is sure to be a huge hit.”
