'This year's tour kicked off with the AMA Gypsy Tour at Bike Week in Daytona Beach, one of the biggest rallies in the nation,' said AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson. 'The tour continues in April with the Laughlin River Run in Nevada and moves on from there.

'These events allow riders of all makes and models to get together and enjoy food, entertainment, group or individual riding and vendors,' Wilson said. 'AMA members can visit the pin stop at each event to show their membership cards and receive a 2019 AMA Gypsy Tour pin.'

The AMA has been sanctioning Gypsy Tours since 1924. They originally were overnight events with organized road rides and other activities of interest to motorcycle enthusiasts. Groups of riders would converge on a single destination. Gypsy Tours were staged in different parts of the country and typically occurred on the same weekend every year.

Laconia Motorcycle Week, which dates to 1916, is the longest-running AMA Gypsy Tour and has been named as an AMA Gypsy Tour Heritage Event for the third year in a row.
