This Saturday is National Motorcycle Ride Day, and it’s a day that is important for a few reasons. While any Saturday is a great day to go out for a ride, the purpose of National Motorcycle Ride Day is to:
- Get all motorcyclists out for a united day of riding. As late fall and winter approach, we are nearing the end of the 2015 Wisconsin motorcycle season, but the season is not over yet! There is still time to enjoy riding and being together with other motorcyclists who share your passion. National Motorcycle Ride Day is a day of celebration and fun for all riders, regardless of their experience or the type of motorcycle they own.
- Support the motorcycle industry. In October 1887, John Dunlop developed the first practical pneumatic tire. This was a significant step in making modern day motorcycles. Thus, the date of National Motorcycle Ride Day was chosen, in part, to honor Mr. Dunlop and to encourage riders to support the local motorcycle industry. It would be a great day to visit and to thank your Wisconsin motorcycle dealer.
National Motorcycle Ride Day will continue to be celebrated annually on the second Saturday of October through at least 2020. We hope that you have an enjoyable and safe motorcycle ride this year and that it is the start of a great tradition among you and your friends.
