Motorcycle enthusiasts are revving up and raising money for a good cause.

The Red River Valley Motorcyclists annual show is at the Alerus Center this weekend. The show benefits Red River Valley Volunteer Fire and Rescue Departments.

This year, it's bigger than ever with about 75 bikes on display and nearly 200 sponsors.

The group chose 32 volunteer fire departments to receive the proceeds.

Motorcyclist Tim Gowan says, "Last year we gave back to charities just under $14,000. This year we're hoping between $50 and $60,000 that we're going to give away."

The event runs through tomorrow from 9 until 4. There will be a raffle drawing for a 2012 Harley Davidson Road King.
