Featured Local Events

Posted on: January 28th, 2015 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

2015 is underway and the local events calendar is slowly starting to fill up. That means it’s time to emerge from your holiday-induced hibernation, join up with other riders, and get out there! Here are a few of our favorite local events coming up, but you can see many other events listed on the Road Rider events calendar.

As always, we would love to hear about YOUR events, rides, and runs, so please email us or send us a message through Facebook with the details so we can include it on the calendar. We might even put it on this page or plug it on Facebook. Our calendar is for the community, so even if your run or fundraiser takes place at or is sponsored by other stores and dealerships, we still want to know about it! Sponsorship or prize donations may be available for your event upon request, too. Email us at sj@roadridermca.com or find us on Facebook at facebook.com/roadridersj.





The One Motorcycle Show

February 13th, 14th, and 15th

Okay, so it’s not exactly local, but this one deserves a shout-out. Our Portlandian neighbors to the north not only grow beards circa 1856 and rock flannel like it’s 1995, they have a thriving custom and refurbished bike scene. The One Moto Show, now in it’s sixth year, puts the best of it on display for the adoring world to see. Check out some pics on their Instagram page, http://instagram.com/the1moto, and if you like what you see, take a little scoot up to Portland this month.

Doc Wong Clinics: Basic Supension Part 1 and 2

Part 1: Friday, February 27th

Part 2: Friday, March 27th

To many of us, our bike’s suspension is one of those mysterious things that we know is important, but we really don’t want to mess with. Enter Doc Wong. Doc Wong’s Suspension Clinics are non-riding teaching clinics. Suspension Part 1 covers the essential basics and Part 2 breaks down shock and fork construction and discusses how to set up damping. The classes begin at 6:30 PM in his Belmont office and are free to attend.

The Doc requests that you email him or call his office to let them know you will be attending a session, and we recommend checking his website as well for additional information on his other clinics.  You can also find his other classes listed on the Road Rider events calendar. Confirm by emailing docwong@aol.com or calling 650-365-7775.

RoadRider 2.0 Seminar and Q&A

Saturday, February 28th

Come down to Road Rider and meet the staff and instructors of Zoom Zoom Track Day’s RoadRider 2.0 class. Get your questions answered about the RoadRider 2.0 program, track days, moto prep, safety gear, and anything else you have in mind.

What’s RoadRider 2.0?

RoadRider 2.0-Beyond the Basics is an advanced skills course for riders who already have a license and some experience under their belt. If you want to gain more confidence, refresh your skills, or learn new riding techniques, Z2’s RoadRider 2.0 class is the place to be. You’ll be guided by Zoom Zoom’s fantastic rider coaches and learn to be a better rider through classroom instruction and closed-course exercises at Sonoma Raceway. This event at Road Rider will help you identify if RoadRider 2.0 is for you or if a normal track day is a better fit for your goals. (Oh, and RoadRider 2.0 is not affiliated with Road Rider Motorcycle Accessories.)

San Jose Pro Indoor Short Track Races

Saturday, March 28th

The same weekend as the Clubman’s you can watch grassroots racing at its best at the San Jose Pro Indoor Short Track Races. Prepare for intense action–indoor short track happens on a caged, polished floor. The action is loud and up close, and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Hit the British bike show in the day and stay for the races in the evening.

Follow developments on Facebook HERE as the San Jose Indoor gets closer. Be sure to catch the Clubman’s All-British Motorcycle Weekend, also happening at the Fairgrounds on Saturday.
