The top 10 motorbike meetings in Europe

Hi friends, my name is Jose and I'm from Portugal. I'm doing a survey work about the bikers communities in Europe.
So, if possible, I would like to have your help in order to create a list, of the 10 best international motorbikes meetings in Europe, classified by you, on a scale 1 to 5.
Thanks for you help
best regards
Jose

I'll chuck in The Bulldog Bash - UK in August. I'll leave it to others to classify it on the 1-5 scale.

2 offerings

1. The Stella Alpina.
It runs every year on the second Sunday in July in Badonechia, but whisper it quietly to keep the numbers manageable.

2. The Moto Piston club meeting in northern Spain around October each year.

Both are 5 out of 5 IMHO, but very different from each other.

Why do you "need" these? Who is the survey you refer to in post #1 for?

What actually classifys as a motorcycle meeting??

In my mind I do a pretty good one most weekends, I text all the Trail riders I know with a starting place and then go for a ride!

I've not done the Farmyard party or Bulldog Bash however I rekon the MT Riders club do some fantastic meetings around the UK every year.

So my question is, for your research to be valid you need to define a motorcycle meeting? Because there are lots of really good little ones all over the place all the time, but then again there are the masive corporate ones where you get to see Iron maiden etc.

PrimusTreffet, north of Oslo, mid February. Never been, but sounds something for the hardy camping in the woods at -20 Deg C or so.

Barton Bike Night

Hope it doesn't go the same way as Cassington bike night near Oxford - been going for over 30yrs and now cancelled because of "health and safety".
