I've gone to the Golden Aspen Motorcycle Rally more times than I can even remember and have had a blast every time. 

If you haven't booked a room yet though, you might need to find a friend that did and start being really nice! Otherwise, plan on going up for just a day to enjoy the beauty of Fall coming to the area and the camaraderie of thousands of fellow bikers. 

Events this year include the Gypsy Tour, sponsored by the American Motorcycle Association, a bike show, a motorcycle stunt show and the traditional rally parade.  All that along with lots of music, food and fun at all the Ruidoso and Cloudcroft bars, restaurants, sites and businesses.  Friday night, the Rally itself presents The Flying J Wranglers and Jordan Young. Saturday, they're bringing in Led Zeppelin tribute band, Led Zeppelin 2.
