Arizona is a haven for bikers. Beautiful desert and mountain roads, and excellent weather most of the year makes this an attractive place for those who enjoy recreational riding, as well as for people who use a bike as daily transportation; a motorcycle is a reasonable alternative to the expense of owning a car or truck, as long as you take precautions to safeguard your bike from theft.
Bikers and their friends and admirers gather in downtown Mesa to show off their bikes, share experiences and introduce newcomers to the biker world. On the first Friday evening of (almost) every month bring the family to downtown Mesa, Arizona for Motorcycles on Main. No cars can drive on Mesa's downtown streets on that evening — that privilege is reserved for bikers.
If you are a biker, you can cruise Main Street or park and show off your bike. If you don't have a motorcycle, you are still invited! Check out all the fantastic bikes along Main Street and talk to the bikers about their rides.
At Motorcycles on Main you can also expect to enjoy a beer garden on North MacDonald (if you are over 21) and hear live music. Bring cash for food vendors, and see what else there is for sale. This is a family-friendly activity.
