5/23 – OVM Annual Spring Show & Swap Meet – Corvallis

We fully intend to go forward with the OVM Corvallis Ride & Show if we are allowed to under the Governor’s restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please check back from time to time to see updates. We’ll post updates as we learn more about the event.

Our premier annual event, which is open to the public is our May Show and Swap Meet. It takes place in Corvallis, Oregon, at the Benton County Fairgrounds. The show is always on Sunday of the weekend before Memorial Day and opens to the public at 10:00 AM. Admission is a low $5.00 per person with children under 12 free.

You can expect to see over 100 well-restored or original examples. There are also always lots of really nice British bikes on display, quite a few BMW’s and some Italian bikes. Japanese machines have been gaining in popularity too. There is also food available at the display site, which is outdoors whenever weather permits (we’ve only had to go indoors due to rain 3 times in 19 years) in a large field at the front of the fairgrounds.

Visitors to our show are encouraged to fill out a ‘People’s Choice’ ballot where you can vote for your favorite bike from each of seven categories: British, American, European, Asian, Competition, Cafe and Featured Marque (Triumph in 2019).

The club president also names their favorite and awards are given for President’s Choice and each of the four People’s Choice categories. Beginning with the 2000 show, we have pictures of each of the bikes so honored on display in our photo gallery.

On the Saturday before our May Meet, we always have a vintage ride. See the photo gallery for an idea of the kinds of bike that take part in this. Anyone who wishes to participate in the ride is invited to meet us at the Benton County Fairgrounds west of Corvallis no later than 11:00am. The ride consists of about 60 – 70 miles of some of the Willamette Valley’s best backroads at a safe riding pace. There is free pizza after the ride at the Fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome. OVM encourages members to ride vintage bikes to sponsored events and rides, but vintage bikes are not a requirement in order to participate in regular rides.

No one is sure if she is a woman. She is freakin ugly and weird, and we are stuck with her. Tried to get a recall going 3 different times and all failed. She is just another dummycrat. You moved to Florida and got away from her. No dont tell me you dont have your own freaks in Florida?

Not the leaders here in Florida... ..... GREAT Governor, DeSantis ( who the left and 60 minutes is afraid of as they already show FAKE NEWS articles about him) We had a great AG, Pam Bondi and her replacement ( term limits here) is doing a fine job also ... Somehow a liberal goober woman "Nikki Fried" was elected as the Agriculture secretary... ... Same ole dem story, she was 100K votes behind and boom, the next day she had won by a few thousand votes... Thousands move here daily from the loonie lefty states THEY ALL VOTED TO MAKE... Hope here in Florida is that they will change their voting habits..... I have my doubts....

Has Oregon EVER had a conservative or a GOOD Governor?????? They did take the perverts picture down, Goldschmidt was it?? The one that had the 14 year old girlfriend ( or was she 13) he would "visit" in her Parents basement.... Not sure how Oregon is so lucky....

I do NOT miss the grey skies, 8 months of cold and rain either...
