Saturday Is ‘National Motorcycle Ride Day’
As of now, this weekend looks like great weather for motorcyclists. As a matter of fact, tomorrow (Saturday, October 9th) is a national holiday for motorcycle enthusiasts - it's 'National Motorcycle Ride Day'. Yes, there is indeed a day for everything.
If you ride, I think you know how to celebrate - get on your bike and go! Tomorrow looks to be our warmest day this weekend with a high of 72. Sunday is not too bad either - a mix of sun and clouds, and a high of 65. You know as a Michigan rider, your days are numbered on the open road. Take advantage of this awesome weather while you can.
It's unfortunate that so many planned bike runs for the summer, where not able to happen. I don't ride, but I do know people that do - and they were always riding for one charity or another. That is the beauty of the biker community - you all are always willing to give back.
According to the National Day Calendar, 'National Motorcycle Ride Day' does come with some significance. Not only is the month of October the end of the riding season for a lot of people in the United States, but it is also the month that John B. Dunlop developed the first practical pneumatic tire in 1887. Without this development in tire technology, motorcycles would not perform as they do or be as enjoyable as they are today. The more you know.
Heads up to everyone on the roads, keep yours eyes open for motorcycles - not just this weekend, but always.
