National Motorcycle Ride Day

Motorcycle Rider

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is celebrated on the second Saturday in October

It's mid October, The air is crisp and chilly. It might be just a bit too cold to head out on your motorcycle before mid-morning, when the low hanging sun warms up the air enough for a comfortable ride. While motorcyclists never need incentive to jump on their "Hog" and feel the freedom of the road,  there's some added incentive: Today is National Motorcycle Ride Day. The open road beckons for one last ride before the long winter season. Grab a couple buddies and take off for parts unknown.

 National Motorcycle Ride Day is all about celebrating and promoting motorcycle riding, and showing your pride. The creator of this day states two objectives for this day:

  1. Simply celebrate motorcycle riding. Taking a long ride with a few friends is a great way to celebrate.
  2. Build and strengthen relationships between everyone involved with motorcycling: riders, dealers, distributers, and manufacturers, to help grow the industry.


Motorcycle Trivia:

  • The first motorcycle appeared in 1867 in Paris, France. Ernest Micheaux fitted a small steam engine to a velocipede, creating the Michaux-Perreaux Steam Velocipede.
  • The first Harley Davidson motorcycle used a tomato can for a carburetor.
  • The world's longest motorcycle was built in Russia in 2005. It was 31 feet long and could hold up to 16 people.
  • Vespa means "wasp" in Italian.


Here's wishing you a very Happy National Motorcycle Ride Day.
