The Bi-State Motorcycle Awareness Council was founded in 1985 by Jim Barnes, Motorcycle Safety Foundation Instructor at Eastern Iowa Community College. The sole purpose was to join together the states of Iowa and Illinois in promoting motorcycle awareness among motorists. This goal is accomplished through the joint efforts of local motorcycle groups. With their perseverance and hard work, this has become the largest two-state motorcycle awareness ride in the nation.
