Bike Night Calendar!

The reason for getting these events started was to provide a fun, social atmosphere for Ducati owners, folks that want to become Ducati owners, and folks that don’t yet know that they want to become Ducati owners and people who are too poor (and/or sensible) to ever own Ducatis, to sit, eat, talk, walk around and look at other Ducatis. All brands and models of motorcycles are welcome, so please don’t be put off by the event name.

Nor Cal Short Track!

In 2014 the Ukiah Flat Track Series and the Prairie City Dirt Track Series merged to become Nor-Cal Short Track, operating a 9-race championship flat-track motorcycle racing series in Northern California. We are fortunate to have access to three exceptional 1/8th mile tracks on which to practice and to race.

The Nor-Cal Short Track mission is to encourage increased participation in the sport of flat track racing and nurture youth involvement. To those ends we have instituted a simple and cost effective set of rules and strive to keep the racing fun, family friendly, competitive, accessible and affordable.

Brian Bartlow’s Feel Like a Pro Dirt operates a fleet of Kawasaki KLX140 bikes for training and racer rental. Feel Like a Pro Dirt will be present at all of our 2014 races as well as offering rider training in Kelseyville California.

Brok McAllister’s Prairie City Dirt Track operates a fleet of Honda CRF150F & CRF230F bikes for training and racer rental at the Prairie City Dirt Track. Brok offers rider training at Prairie City year round as well as open practice most Sundays. Racer rentals will be available at our Prairie City race events in 2014.

California Motorcycle Rider Unification Rally (California State Capital Building, 1400 Tenth St, Sacramento, CA 95814)

All motorcycle riders need to come together in a show of force and unity to defend our rights before it’s too late. If you have a throttle in your right hand, you need to attend this rally. We had an estimated 8,500 bikers in attendance at the last rally, and are hoping to see over 10,000 bikers in attendance this time.

The rally is hosted by Northern California Confederation of Clubs (NorCal COC). Key bikers’ rights issues include:

  • Rider profiling by law enforcement
  • Potential legislation on lane splitting
  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) funding for motorcycle “safety” checkpoints which violate California law (AB1047) prohibiting Motorcycle-Only Checkpoints
