[American Motorcyclist Association] - Off-road racing legend Ron Bishop passes

The AMA offers condolences to the friends, family and fans of storied off-road racer and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer Ron Bishop. Mr. Bishop passed away Sept. 20. He was 71.

Bishop became a legend in long distance off-road races, such as the Baja 1000. Bishop raced every Baja 1000 from its start in 1967 to the time he was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2001 and beyond.

Bishop won numerous class titles in many of the major off-road motorcycle races of the 1960s through the early 2000s, such as the Baja 1000, Baja 500, Tecate 500, Mint 400 and Mexicale 300.

Few off-road racers, if any, can claim such a long career winning their class at such world-class events.

During the mid-1970s Bishop was also a two-time member of the American team in the International Six Days Trial (now the International Six Days Enduro). Bishop was a factory off-road racer for Kawasaki and later Rokon.
