National Motorcycle Ride Day
About National Motorcycle Ride Day
When is National Motorcycle Ride Day? This holiday is observed on the second Saturday in October
It’s mid-October, and 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 the 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 of buddies and take off for parts unknown.
Here’s wishing you a very Happy National Motorcycle Ride Day.
