Upcoming Events – June 2014

Ok, I dropped the ball on this one.  Sorry I didn’t get this posted until basically the end of the month.  Some of these links are current, some from last year but should still be able to be followed.  I had much more than I could handle going on this month to spend the time necessary to get this out the way it should be.  One of those things was planning and preparing for an almost 3,000 mile multi-state ride that I’m doing now (25JUN2014).  To check that out you can click HERE.

—————————————————-

Here are the events I’m aware of for June 2014.  June is a very full month for events so please bear with me in getting all of these posted as this list will be very extensive.  Because of this I have gone through each of these listings and posted the actual page the info is on, bypassing any “intro” pages that only take up your time and/or advertise a dealer or sponsor.

If you know of any other events please send me the details, including a valid website link, so I can add them.  Events without their own website, or substantial information page or flyer, will not be added.  I also do not list “events” that are basically only advertising MC dealers or parts stores with only a reference to some brief customer-grabbing event.  I’m not against these retailers, some are close friends, however this type of “event” is considered to only be for the benefit of the retailer.

If you’re looking for an event to attend, but not finding quite what you’re looking for, check back here periodically.  I add new events as soon as possible after I’m informed about them.

Major Events Nationwide Update – 09MAR2014

The “Major Events Nationwide” Page Has Been Updated – Click HERE to view the revisions.

Upcoming Events – March 2014

Here are some of the events I’m aware of for March 2014.  More will be added as soon as I can verify and post the information.  When time permits I try to list these events in order as if you were traveling from one to the other.  In other words, if you were at an event in Daytona Beach, FL and the next date on the list had an event in Tallahassee, FL AND one in Nashville, TN, the next one listed would be Tallahassee followed by Nashville.

If you know of any others please send me the details, including a valid website link, so I can add them.

Also, if you’re looking for an event to attend but not finding quite what you’re looking for check back here periodically. I add new events as soon as I learn about them.

Upcoming Events – December 2012

Here are the events I’m aware of for December 2012.  If you know of any other events please send me the details, including a valid website link, so I can add them.  Events without their own website, or substantial information page/flyer, will not be added.  I also do not list “events” that are basically only advertising MC dealers or parts stores with only a reference to some brief customer-grabbing event.  I’m not against these retailers, some are close friends, however this type of “event” is considered to only be for the benefit of the retailer.

If you’re looking for an event to attend, but not finding quite what you’re looking for, check back here periodically.  I add new events as soon as possible after I’m informed about them.

New – When Possible, I Will Begin Including A Link To Charities Benefited By Various Events (if the event link does not explain the charity) So You Will Be Able To Check Them Out.

Also, it seems there are more and more “clothing optional” events now.  I have nothing against these personally, however since I am trying to keep this blog/site either “G” or “PG” rated so our youth can come here to learn about motorcycle related events I will not be posting information regarding these events.

Please click HERE for information about Event Photos.

As many of you already know, December is a slow month for rallies and events.  This list will be updated as I learn of additional events.

Upcoming Events – August 2012

Here are the events I’m aware of for August 2012.  If you know of any other events please send me the details, including a valid website link, so I can add them.  Events without their own website, or substantial information page/flyer, will not be added.  I also do not list “events” that are basically only advertising MC dealers or parts stores with only a reference to some brief customer-grabbing event.  I’m not against these retailers, some are close friends, however this type of “event” is considered to only be for the benefit of the retailer.

If you’re looking for an event to attend, but not finding quite what you’re looking for, check back here periodically.  I add new events as soon as possible after I’m informed about them.
