International Motorcycle Show

On February 26 I attended the International Motorcycle Show at the convention center in Greenville, SC. It is an annual show that travels to around a dozen cities each winter. It's a good opportunity to check out all the current model year bikes, check out and purchase gear and accessories, join in on demo rides, see displays of vintage bikes and customized bikes, watch stunt shows, and attend educational seminars. This was about my fifth time to go, and it's always a great deal of fun, and I get a lot out of it. The southeast show used to be held in Atlanta, but they thankfully moved it to Greenville a couple of years ago.

The helmet is creepy, but the bike is pretty cool.

BMW GS used by the Henderson County NC Sheriff's Department; this is the bike that Ewan and Charley rode in Long Way Round.

Not your typical Harley. Made during the company's low point when it was owned by AMF, the bowling company.

The Honda CB-750 from the 70's. I'd love to get one of these one day!

Some more creepiness if you look closely, but pretty cool overall look.
