2020 Updates

Things are changing

2020. A new year, a new decade. Now what do you think will be different about your motorcycling experience in the 2020s as opposed to the way it rolled for you in the 2010s? A lot. You may move on to a new bike, no doubt you may travel somewhere new. In looking at the upcoming 2020 calendar of events we see changes on the horizon. Here's a few things of note.

PSSOR Ends off-road training

Puget Sound Safety has terminated its off-road training for 2020. But the good news is the guys at Dirt First are still in operation. South Sounders will have to travel a little further, but the learning experience is worth the drive.

Fringe MC Dirty Poker Run has been scrubbed

Sadly, the landowners have reached the end of their ability to allow this event to continue. As cited by the Fringe MC site, the spring poker run poses too much of a fire hazard and they are looking for another location to hold an event at in the fall.

See A Show

It's been a few years since we've had a motorcycle show in Seattle. But you can always venture north to Abbotsford: break in that new enhanced photo ID and visit the Vancouver Motorcycle show which happens this year 1/24-26. The Inland Motorcycle Show in Spokane will be 3/13-15.

2/1 Year of the Rat: Bike Show

The folks at Sound RIDER! and Backfire Moto want to light up your winter days with a bike show and honor the Chinese New Year. The bike show will be one day only held onsite at the former location of Moto International. If you have a rat bike you'd like to enter into the show, send details to sreditor@soundrider.com.

6/20-21 Le May Motorcycle Days

This event returns as a two-day event, rather than the 9-day event it had been. If you're looking for the less crowded version, consider visiting the LeMay Marymount campus in Puyallup on a weekday before or after where a number of things will be set up in advance and left up until the volunteers have time to take them down. Just remember though, if you're a dad, dad's typically get into the museum free on Father's Day.

Track days galore

There are a lot of track days coming up on the calendar. While they don't get listed in this newsletter, you can find a comprehensive listing at www.soundrider.com/calendar .
