motorcycle-rally-wr.jpgI've written about how much I enjoy planning a trip. I enjoy it almost as much as I enjoy the trip itself, if truth be told. Well, the beginning of a new year is always a great time to take a look at the calendar to figure out when and where we'll be riding as the pages flip.

Here are a few of the major motorcycle events scheduled for 2010. Take a look at your calendar, and see if you've got room for a trip! It's never too early to start planning.

February 26 - March 7: Bike Week 2010, Daytona Beach, Florida.
Known as "The World's Biggest Motorcycle Event," Bike Week is a 10-day festival that was originally built around actual motorcycle racing.

March 5: The Daytona 200 , Daytona, Florida.
A great chance to see world-class motorcycle racing in person.

April 14 - 18: Arizona Bike Week , Mesa, Arizona.
This has turned into a wonderful venue for music, with appearances from major bands planned.

April 21 - 25: Laughlin River Run , Laughlin, Nevada.
Great weather, great riding and a wild atmosphere.

May 30: Rolling Thunder , Washington, DC.
An annual ride into our nation's capital to bring awareness to POW-MIA issues.

June 7 -12: Americade, Lake George, NY.
An all-brands rally with an emphasis on touring riders, rider education and safety.

June 12 - 20: Laconia Motorcycle Week , Laconia, New Hampshire.
The "Yang" to Americade's "Ying," Laconia is pure biker fun.

July 9 - 11: AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days , Lexington, Ohio.
A rolling celebration of America's motorcycle heritage, including vintage motorcycle racing at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

August 9 - 15: Sturgis Rally and Races , Sturgis, South Dakota.
The granddaddy of them all, the rally that every Harley rider dreams of attending at least once.

September 2 - 5: Milwaukee Rally , Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The biggest motorcycle rally in the Midwest, and a great chance to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum.

October 1 - 4: Las Vegas BikeFest , Las Vegas, Nevada.
What happens in Vegas is a whole lot of fun.

October 15 - 18: Biketoberfest , Daytona Beach, Florida.
We're back to where we started, and fun in the sun in Florida.

Hope to see you at some (or all) of these events this year!

    Hi Jason:

    The Tour de USA 2010 for prostate cancer awareness leaves Los Angeles on July 30, 2010 for a round trip, trans-American crossing to raise men's awareness of prostate cancer. Full details are at Riders can ride the entire route or just a segment. We've applied to the Guinness World Record organization to compete for the largest charity motorcycle rally. We need participants to hit that goal. This will be the Woodstock of motorcycle rallies, without the drugs and alcohol. Any publicity you could provide would be great. And come ride some with us. Best regards, robert Hess, Founder, Accidental Prostate Cancer Survivor.
