Even though it’s not riding season in the Midwest, there are still a few motorcycle events happening that you don’t want to miss. From indoor racing to bike shows, there’s something for everyone who rides or just enjoys being part of the motorcycle community. Here are some of the most popular events in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa that you should check out.
ABATE of Wisconsin Lobby Day (February 17) – ABATE of Wisconsin is a group that fights for biker rights and helps motorcyclist’s voices be heard. Their annual lobby day event will take place at the Wisconsin State Capitol where riders from across the state and beyond come to talk to legislators about issues and laws that affect motorcyclists. Buses from all around the state, supported by Hupy and Abraham, give free rides to the capitol for anyone who needs one. Everyone is welcome to join. You can learn more at abatewis.org or check out videos from past lobby days from our Behind the Handlebars video series.
