The fourth International Journal of Motorcycle Studies Conference was held the weekend of June 19 in Colorado Springs. The conference took place over three days at the University of Colorado.
The first conference was held in Colorado Springs in 2010, and every other year the event is held abroad. Last year’s forum was held in London.
The conference is based on an academic journal of the same name, which publishes twice a year about motorcycle-related news: helmet laws, accidents, innovations in technology and long distance or international travels.
Even though it is an academic conference, participants promise the event is completely accessible. All motorcycle enthusiasts were welcome to discuss topics like motorcycle history, mechanics, risks and safety.
One participant commented on the importance of community in motorcycling:
“It’s a different experience than when you ride in a car. It instantly bonds you to other people who ride. There’s that exposure to the elements you’re taking on, and the sense of accomplishment that you can manage a 600- to 800-pound machine.”
Attendees had the opportunity to speak to different authors, scholars and other motorcycle lovers. The event held off-site dinners and open motorcycle rides every night after the day’s activities.
The community alone is a big draw among motorcyclists. The common values and passions uniting the motorcycle community contribute to a sense of brotherhood and solidarity.
