A motorcycle is a major source of entertainment for a lot of people around the globe. It is a social activity for motorcyclists to get together, creating a great sense of community between those who share a passion for this lifestyle. We may even see motorcycle enthusiasts develop as a sub-culture in various parts of the world. Annually, a number of shows are organized for them to gather and share their passion for motorcycles in different ways. Leading manufacturers also use this opportunity to show off their upcoming machines to the users.
This year, the IMS has geared up to offer great news to motorcycle fans in Arizona by generating a series of shows starting February 21. They’ve brought in notorious brands like Ducati, BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Victory, and Yamaha to excite motorcycle enthusiasts. They’ll not only display the latest bikes but also include top-notch accessories and aftermarket parts. The Progressive International Motorcycle Show welcomes all fans to get together and experience the motorcycling culture, converse with brand experts, get their bikes loaded with new gear, and even take demos and pictures with the new models they’ve been dying to see.
A Chance to Win $100,000 Prize
For the seventh year in a row, we have the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Competition at this show. This is the biggest touring custom bike competition currently within the U.S. The competition offers incredible prizes to its winners. It hosts four classes of bikes that include Modified Harley-Davidson, Modified Custom, Freestyle and Modified Street. One great development for motorcycle fans is that they may enter any of the shows to have a chance to win a $100,000 in cash. A total of four cash prize winners will sequentially be chosen at every show.
Meet and Talk to Top Racers and Stunt Drivers
The main stage presentations will attract and guide all attendees to meet top motorcycle racers and stunt drivers, attend technical seminars, listen to riding instructors, and meet exciting bike designers and custom bike builders along with famous moto celebrities. There will also be a q&a session where questions from the audience following the presentations are encouraged. Other highlights of the program include Earth Ride, The Yamaha Champions Riding School, and short clips from the making of “Hitting the Apex”, with narrations by Brad Pitt and other celebrities.
Musical Performance by The Progressive School of Rock
The event will also have a musical event supporting the young generation of riders. The Progressive School of Rock will return for their third tour at this show. For people who don’t know, they are known for their high-energy concerts that are sure to excite music fans.
Other events include stunt shows by Jason Britton, vintage club displays, live art by the Japanese-born artist Makoto Endo, demo-rides, power-sport giveaways and much more.
