Default The One Motorcycle Show



I went last year for the first time (I think they only had one show before last year) and it was pretty cool. A lot of very interesting bikes and a lot of very interesting people. It's in a different place this year.

I wish my bike was more finished, so maybe next year they'll take it.

For those who haven't been it's a lot of vintage and custom. And a lot of PBR. :mrgreen:

I met the owner at the AHRMA event at PIR in 2010 and tool a few more pics. He was very helpful and I took notes for my own bike.

It's pretty unfettered. Certainly no restrictions of any kind. It gets a little rowdy later on as the PBRs disappear. Nothing illegal mind you, just good fun.

Dunno how old your kids are but the show is a lot more mellow early on and not so crowded.

I recently talked to Thor about this years show. The new location won't allow for some of the past years' fun. IE: No impromtu indoor burnout contests. No rev limiter checks. In fact there won't be any running of any engine inside the building for any reason. Not as much rowdy fun, but should be more kid and family friendly.
