2017 Minneapolis Motorcycle Show

This month the International Motorcycle Show came to Minneapolis. I worked the MMSC booth encouraging riders to take training and handing out the coveted “Start Seeing Motorcycles” bumper stickers. I had a great time chatting with all the current and future riders who stopped by.

The highlight of the show for me was the freestyle motorcycle stunt show. I tried to capture a few pictures and posted a short video to twitter. They barely do the show justice. The flips and tricks were really impressive.

There were quite a few interesting bikes in the custom bike show contest. These are some of my favorites.

Overall, the show was decent. Sadly, I wasn’t very excited about any of the new bikes the various manufacturers had. I also don’t need any new gear, so many of the booths weren’t interesting. I did pick up some brochures for a couple track day events and some new more advanced rider training. I’m looking forward to those.
Did you attend an IMS show recently? What did you think?

  2. Glad they still came to town and you could attend. I bet you saw a lot of people working the booth.

    The closest to us is now Long Beach, CA. They took away Seattle/Portland and San Mateo. Sigh.

    1. Wow, bummer. That is a ways away. You could always come visit MN 😉
