Here are the events I’m aware of for May 2017, primarily occurring in the slightly modified South (basically on/below a line from Kansas to Maryland as indicated below) since that’s where our club membership is based and most of our current readers are located. I have gone through each of these listings and when possible posted only the actual page the info is on, bypassing any “intro” pages that take up your time and/or only advertise a dealer or sponsor. Please follow links provided with each entry to determine admission fee (if any), pre-registration procedures, possible minimum age requirements, and any other pertinent information.
If you know of any other events please send me the details, including a valid website or online-flyer link, so I can add them. Events without their own website, or a substantial information page or flyer, will not be added. I also do not list “events” that are basically only advertising items for sale at motorcycle dealers or parts stores with only a reference to some brief, purchase required, 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.
We have added a proprietary map of the events listed below.
