The International Journal of Motorcycle Studies (IJMS), the only online, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to motorcycle culture, will be hosting its annual conference at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, June 22–24, 2017.

IJMS is dedicated to the study and discussion of motorcycling culture in all its forms—from the experience of riding and racing to the history of the machine, the riders and design to the images of motorcycling and motorcyclists in film, advertising and literature. We encompass all areas related to the cultural phenomenon of motorcycling worldwide and look forward to another conference featuring some great presentations and discussions on some of the following topics: 

  • The motorcycle or riding in film, literature, art and music
  • The motorcycle as art 
  • Motorcycle racing
  • Motorcycle history
  • The role of place/environment in motorcycling
  • Motorcycling and issues of safety and risk
  • Motorcycling and the law/legal issues

  • The psychology of the motorcycle, the motorcyclist and the ride
  • Motorcycle travel/tourism
