Indiana Motorcycle Trips and Events List

Lying at the crossroads of America, Indiana (IN) offers motorcycle rides with a good degree of variations in scenery and amenities. In the northern half of the state you'll find picturesque farming communities woven into hardy hardwood forests. Moving further south the terrain becomes more hilly with equally healthy forest all the way down to the Ohio River Valley and quaint border towns that dot the river's path. The state also is home to some major universities with beautiful and inviting campuses motorcycle riders may enjoy touring - the University of Notre Dame (South Bend), Purdue University (West Lafayette), and Indiana University (Bloomington). And, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a major tourist draws as it is one of the most famous race tracks in all of the world.
