Get Your Motor Running

Well, the oh-so-short motorcycle riding season is upon us!
 
I am new to Fairbanks, but not new to the open road.  I am interested in finding other motorcycle enthusiasts who are interested in going on some riding excursions.  While large group rides are exciting, I am more familiar with small groups.
 
Here are some motorcycle-related events I’ve found while surfing the web:
June 6: Throttle Thunder Relay (Fundraiser)
June 18-20: Alaska State HOG Rally
July 11: Ride for Red (Red Cross Fundraiser)
 
Let me and Statewide Voice know of any other events.  I’ll be ready as soon as the temperatures get above 50!
