Discover The Top 10 Motorcycle Events...
In the olden days, cowboys rode their horses into towns for a week or two of fun and partying, leisure, to sell their wares, meet up with old friends; in all to have a good time at their 'rendezvous'.
Cut to modern times and the cowboy has turned into a biker and the horse has been replaced by a chopper (motorcycle). The thundering roar of the engines has replaced the galloping sound of horse hooves. The rest essentially remains the same and 'rendezvous' of old have now become motorcycle events and rallies.
Thousands of bikers gather at these motorcycle events and rallies for some fun and games. These biker events and motorcycle shows give bikers a platform to showcase their talents as well as providing them with a means to have some time of un-abandoned joy.
