World Motorcycle Day is celebrated every year on June 21 as a day to promote freedom of the road. Since June 21 is the year’s longest day, the holiday is always observed on that day. This day is dedicated to motorcycle enthusiasts and anyone else involved in the industry.

World Motorcycle Day is on June 21st, celebrating passionate bikers and the motorcycle culture from design, riding, choppers, sports bikes, adventure, racing to classic bikes. The first steam-powered motorcycle was created in 1860 by Pierre Michaux in Paris. Two decades later, the first internal combustion petroleum fueled motorcycle was made by Daimler Reitwagen in Germany.

The whole biker lifestyle began with servicemen returning from World War II who bonded over the love of motorcycles. In the early 1900s, over 300 American motorcycle companies were launched. Compact, easy to store, and fun to drive, there is no wonder why motorcycles grew as popular as cars!
