National Motorcycle Ride Day

The month of October is significant not only because this is toward the end of the riding season for a lot of motorcyclists in the USA, but it is also the month that John B. Dunlop developed the first practical pneumatic tire in 1887. Without this development in tire technology motorcycles would not perform as they do or be as enjoyable as they are today. That being said, this day is also dedicated to John B. Dunlop and his invention of the first practical pneumatic tire.
