When my plans to visit the National Motorcycle Museum over Labor Day got put on hold by my bank account, I devised three northeast Ohio rides for that weekend -- and they didn’t disappoint.
After a three year absence from the MotoAmerica paddock, I wasn’t sure if I’d see Jody Barry take part in a pro road race again. The last time I’d seen Lake in the Hills, Ill., resident in a MotoAmerica paddock was the New Jersey Motorsports Park round in 2017. ... Though his comeback season aboard the Righteous Racing Aprilia RS 660 this year has been marked by both victory and near-tragedy, just seeing a talented young rider like Barry find a way to restart his pro road racing career is refreshing -- especially for fans who remember pro road racing's darkest days about a decade ago.
