CUMMING — In preparation for Motorcycle Safety Month in May, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is holding its first Motorcycle Safety Day from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.  The event had been scheduled for Saturday, but has been moved to Sunday because of heavy rain expected on Saturday.  

The event will take place across from 235 Castleberry Road at the large Cumming Fairgrounds parking lot, with the Department of Driver Services on site to conduct testing for class M licenses, both the written and riding portions, according to Cpl. Matt Scott from the sheriff’s office traffic enforcement and motor unit.

“There will be three dealerships attending, each with their own mechanic,” Scott said. “The mechanics will be providing free motorcycle inspections for interested owners.

“We will also have a couple of law enforcement cone courses set up and will be allowing citizens to ‘challenge a cop.’”

Food, drinks and merchandise will be available for purchase from local companies, as well as a patch sewer, a representative from an insurance agency specializing in motorcycle insurance, a local cigar shop, a custom powder coating company, apparel, several rider schools and a 50/50 raffle.
