Post-Show Report

Another Record Breaking Spring Motorcycle Show!

The Toronto International Spring Motorcycle Show has come and gone, and what a Show it was! The Show drew record crowds on both days – and besides Saturday's attendance being at an all time high, we also broke the record for the number of motorcycles on the parking lot thanks to the great weather. Sunday's weather was not as nice but again, attendance was higher than any past year. Good thing we have expanded the Show into Hall 6 to make room for all you motorcycle enthusiasts who can't get enough of the New Model motorcycles, the custom bikes, stage shows, touring displays, club displays, the Used Bike Market, special guests and all the vendors who bring motorcycle products of all types to sell at great Show prices. You bet there were some great deals at this year's Show! Here are some of our favourite photos.

*We've got some exciting news about the dates for next year's Spring Show so please check back soon*

This year's Daytona 200 Winner, Jason DiSalvo, was on hand at the Spring Motorcycle Show in the GP Bikes booth in Hall 1 to meet race fans and sign autographs. This was Jason's first win in the Daytona 200 and it was also the first win ever for a Ducati Motorcycle so it was a double victory and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

The activity around the Indian Motorcycle display was incredible, with showgoers checking out the complete 2011 new model line-up and taking advantage of the great show prices on Indian apparel. The display looked great!

The Spring Motorcycle Show really is the best place to check out the new model motorcycles as well as non-current sale priced bikes and used bikes, and the best way to 'shop' is with a few of your motorcycling friends!
