Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Bike Blessing

Bike Blessing: Since motorcycling is an activity involving risk, it is sometimes prudent to bless these machines and their riders before a group ride. These are called Bike Blessings or a Blessing of the Bikes. Bike Blessings are informal religious ceremonies conducted by ministers, priests, rabbis, and other religious authorities. Some Bike Blessings involve thousands of bikes. Others may involve only a few bikes. Bike Blessings were performed one-bike-at-a-time, upon request, at the BuRP Rally held in Maggie Valley, NC. The BuRP rally is organized and run by members of various motorcycle forums including the Motorcycle Views Forum. Here's an example of the words that might be used at a Bike Blessing.
