Motorcycle Rallies + Clubs
You guessed it: This section is all about showcasing motorcycle rallies and clubs. Getting to know other riders with similar interests is an excellent way to get the most out of motorcycling. For many people motorcycling is more than getting from point A to point B; motorcycling is a culture and a lifestyle and we think there is some real value in connecting with those who share your passion for motorcycling… even if it’s just to talk about how much you love riding solo!

The Golden Eagle Restaurant in Clarksburg, Massachusetts, is at the Mohawk Trail’s famous Hairpin Turn. The second floor balcony offers great views of the valley—and drivers trying to negotiate that turn!

I’m a western Massachusetts native who’s been called Bones since childhood, so when I learned about an upcoming “Western Mass BONE Ride,” naturally, I investigated. A BONE Ride, it turns out, involves an organization called New England Riders and roads that its members include among the Best... Read more »

Encroaching urbanization and powerful residential landholders... Read more »

RIDE Motorcycle: A Club For One and All

Top, left: The Day Trip patch is a Challenge Patch earned if a member travels 1,000 miles in 24 hours or less. Middle, left: The Chilly Burger patch is hard won. The rider must ride over Michigan’s Mackinaw Bridge and back in December, January or February. Bottom, left: Members earn the Appalachian Triathlon patch for riding Deal’s Gap, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Ohio Route 555 in the same trip. Center: Our current RIDE logo is often seen as a sticker on members’ motorcycles or on T-shirts. Top, right: If members ride from Hell in Lower Michigan to Paradise in the U.P. they are awarded the To Hell & Back patch. Middle, right: This Best Roads patch is earned for riding Tennessee’s Route 129. Or as Dick says, “$2.50 will get you any patch you want.” Bottom, right: This patch accompanies the doctorate and grants the use of “Dr.” with a member’s handle such as Dr. Pilgrim or Dr. Stranger.

Last Fall, I earned my doctorate from Two-Lane University after a seven-day solo ride through six states. I’m now known by fellow RIDE Motorcycle members as Dr. Souldance. Want to find out how I did it? I’ll have to start at the beginning—of the club, that is. Dick Stob and Jerry Fondse founded... Read more »

If the opportunity ever arises to go on a ride through British Columbia, don’t hesitate for one moment, GO. That’s what I did as soon as I saw that the third edition of the North American FJR Owners Rally would be held in Castlegar, BC. Located in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains, this south central... Read more »

Where can a motorcyclist go to experience our sport’s rich and storied past? Anamosa, Iowa, for starters. The National Motorcycle Museum is located in this small Midwestern city three hours due west of Chicago. Why here? As is often the case with museums, there is a passionate person with a vision... Read more »

Some people, hearing about an attempt at a land speed record, picture a NASA-like project of crunching terabytes, wind tunnel testing and the ritual burning of cubic volumes of R&D money. T’aint necessarily so. The BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials at Bonneville is an annual motorcycle-only event that... Read more »

The 14 German motorcycles on display at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance weren’t sprawled on the vast expanses of grassy real estate occupied by their four-wheeled counterparts, but the bikes exuded their own unique charisma during an unseasonably warm Sunday in Monterey, California.

If the goals of the sixth AMA’s Women & Motorcycling Conference last July were to enjoy some humor, diversity, education and a roaring good time, the couple in front of us at the cookout was doing well. The woman was honoring the first women’s motorcycling organization by wearing a Motor Maids... Read more »
