Here are the events I’m aware of for October 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.
