The SPRINGSHOW has always offered a $3 discount coupon, and those are still available for the show’s regular hours. This year we’re taking things a step further and making it affordable to those looking to save a little more. All adults entering the show on Saturday night will save $9 off the regular admission. With our Free Parking program this is an unbeatable deal. Show Manager, Peter Derry, states “We’d like to see more families come out. We know this is spring break time and that families are looking for things to do together. Half price tickets make SPRINGSHOW a fun and affordable activity for Mom, Dad and the kids. This will save them a lot of money. It’s also easier to get around the show in the evening as the crowds during the day can be a bit of a challenge”.

Saturday evening show attendees can expect to see the same great deals as during regular show hours and even some surprise Saturday night deals from our exhibitors.

Women in Motorcycling

The Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW is pleased to present ‘Women in Motorcycling’, an exhibit showcasing some ‘girls next door’ who have taken the motorcycling world by storm, each in their own unique way. Make sure to visit the exhibit in Hall 1 and chat with some ordinary women who have discovered the extraordinary world of riding the wind…

An almost ’empty nester’, Kimberlee Anna Taplay (known as ‘KAT’ by all her riding friends) always had a secret wish to ride but never shared it with anyone until two years ago.

KAT head shot

Taking a friend up on his offer to ride with him on his Harley, KAT was forever changed after being baptized by the wind. Immersing herself in the process of learning as much as she could about the world of riding, Kimberlee Anna came up with a ‘game plan’ and stuck to it: She worked trade shows, did some freelance writing for industry publications, did a lot of networking, and finally went for her M2 licence during a motorcycle course run by OMSA in May of 2013. Three weeks later, she ‘adopted’ Ruby — a 2007 Yamaha VStar 650 Custom — and hasn’t looked back. “It’s so much a part of me now,” KAT says. “I measure my life in two pieces: Before I started riding, and every moment since then.”
KAT plans to take her first road trip this summer, and is hoping to get brave enough (with the help and encouragement of her mentor) to head north, take a couple of weeks off the grid, and tour aimlessly on Manitoulin Island. “It’s shaping up to be a ‘Bucket List’ kind of summer,” she says as she smiles widely. “This is one KAT who plans on living every one of her 9 lives to the fullest!”
Make sure to visit the ‘Women in Motorcycling’ exhibit at the 2014 Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW, and chat with KAT and several other unique and interesting women who are all part of the growing number of the fairer sex embracing the world of motorcycles and ‘riding the wind’ in their own way….



The 2014 Toronto International Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW announces new motorsport sponsorship program

Toronto, Canada

The Toronto International Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW presented by Dalton Timmis Insurance, held at the International Centre March 15 – 16, is proud to announce new Motocross and road racer rider sponsorship programs.

The Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW along with industry partners Ken McAdams from S.O.A.R, Colin Fraser from the CSBK and Paul Rogers of will team up to build the Road Racer Stars of Tomorrow program. Veterans Kyle Caruthers from DMX and Skip Pym from CMX are expected to continue with the evolution of the successful MX Stars Showcase.

The SPRINGSHOW has been very successful generating huge attendance figures. Its pre-season timing is ideal for promoting motorsport.  It’s now time to take this strength and put it to good use. We will now profile and support amateur racers as a new focus to the Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW.  The SPRINGSHOW  will now provide sponsored booth space, introduce rider support programs from the motorcycle industry and create workshops and seminars to assist these up and coming riders on what it takes to generate sponsors, retain the sponsors and engage the public to promote the sport.

MX Stars Showcase and Road Racer Stars of Tomorrow will be two separate exhibits featuring the Racers, their bikes, trophies and their unique creative displays

Participants will be selected by a resume submission process. These select riders will be able to provide their sponsors valuable exposure just before the season that otherwise would not be possible.

Show Manager, Peter Derry comments, “As a co founder of the MX Stars of Tomorrow program, I have witnessed firsthand the remarkable progress of the MX Stars racers. Now it’s time to take this proven formula and build the road racer program. It’s exciting to launch these new initiatives that will provide up and coming racers the valuable exposure for their sponsors and highlight the exciting realm of motorcycle racing”.

This is a no-cost program, no fees to the racer participants or the companies that provide rider sponsorship initiatives to get on board. This is a 100% volunteer based effort, done for the love and greater good of the sport.

All resumes should be submitted to

We are presently gathering rider support programs from a number of industry companies.

The Toronto International Spring Motorcycle show was established in 1988 as a small show to meet the demand of motorcyclists making important decisions as they enter their riding season. 24 years later, it is now the largest Spring Motorcycle show in Canada offering outstanding performance to exhibitors and consumers alike.
