It is here, unfortunately, the off-season for motorcycle riding. We have been getting tons of rain (at least it feels that way) here. But flipping through some motorcycle magazines, we noticed there are events you can still attend just to keep connected to the motorcycle scene, even if you have to use a car to get to them!
Progressive International Motorcycle Shows
Progressive puts on a lot of these shows. The awesome thing is that they stretch from coast to coast. There seems to be a lot of attractions and the ticket prices aren’t too outrageous. The ticket prices do vary by location, however, so be sure to look it up before you go.
The six upcoming shows start in Long Beach, CA (these folks probably don’t have an off-season) and end in Washington DC. Here is a link to their schedule: www.motorcycleshows.com/cities
Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction, January 23-27
There may not be an off riding season for the people of Las Vegas either, but this is too cool not to mention. The motorcycles for auction look amazing and according to the Mecum website there will be 1,750 bikes for auction. We loved, especially, looking at the 1964 DKW Hummel 115 for auction. We haven’t ever seen anything like it before. You can either get a general admission ticket ($20.00 for advance tickets; $30.00 at the gate) or if you have spare cash burning a hole in your pocket you can register as a bidder ($100.00 for standard bidder if done before the auction; $200.00 during). www.mecum.com/motorcycles/
Thaw-Buster Seminar with Ken Condon, January 13
Here is something for our friends on the east coast to look forward to. While winter is still going on why not brush up on your motorcycle riding skills? The instructor is Ken Condon who has massive experience in the world of motorcycles. The best part is this seminar is free but you do have to pre-register to get a spot. Check out his website here: www.ridinginthezone.com
The event will be held at Harley Davidson Southhampton. For more information check out their events page: www.harleyofsouthampton.com/.
We hope this short list helps you get through the winter! Before we know it the good riding weather will be here again.
