Spring means one thing to motorcyclists – taking the bike out of storage and getting ready to hit the road. Whether it’s for commuting, weekend rides or plans for that big road trip there’s a sense of purpose for riders once the snow melts. The Spring Show, presented by Mantha Insurance and taking place April 4 & 5 at the International Centre, is timed perfectly to provide a one-stop shopping opportunity for all motorcyclists.
New 2009 model motorcycles on display include touring and cruising bikes, street bikes, offroad bikes, scooters and there will also be great deals on non-current models. The giant Used Bike Clearance Sale is a hot spot for anyone shopping for a bike, with a vast array of all makes & models.
For new riders, the Show offers information on Rider Training, licensing and Insurance, plus vendors will offer advice on starter bikes and proper riding gear. With over 30 motorcycle clubs exhibiting, there’s a riding club for every type of rider to join and charity rides to add to the riding calendar.
Showgoers can check out features such as the Fashion Shows by On the Fringe, and the Spring Used Bike Market. With 4 huge Accessory Superstores, Toronto area Dealer displays, independent retailers, used parts vendors, and more, the Spring Show’s vendors promise an unequalled assortment of products for all riders.
