NATIONAL RIDE TO WORK DAY, JUNE 20, 2011


Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:


The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.

That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.

That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.

That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.

That motorcycling is a social good.
