Motorcycle Enthusiasts loved 2012 Edmonton Motorcycle Show
The 2012 Edmonton Motorcycle Show ran from Friday January 13th, 2012 until Sunday, January 15th, 2012, at the Expo Centre, Northlands.
This year’s Show was an amazing prelude to the upcoming riding season. Throughout the course of the three days of the show, over 33,900 Edmontonians made their way through the turnstiles to be some of the first to check out the incredible showcase of new 2012 models, from over 25 different manufacturers.
The Show kicked off in grand style on Friday with the 5th Annual She Rides Nite. At the conclusion of the evening Gerri Hunter walked away with the keys to a brand new 2012 EX250 Ninja, courtesy of Cycle Works Motorsports and Canadian Kawasaki .
The Evolution of Extreme Show ran throughout the weekend and was a definite crowd pleaser for those who took it in. Audiences were treated to the jaw dropping, high flying action of not only MX freestylers, but an ATV and Snowmobile freestyler as well. There was no break in the action as Ernie Vigil and Nick Brocha of Team Empire took to the floor to showcase their own brand of stunt riding.
Clayton Bellamy of the “Roadhammers” entertained and wowed crowds with his acoustic performances of his brand new single “Everyone’s a Dreamer.”
The Yamaha Kids Riding Academy and Scooter School were extremely popular and sessions filled up quickly. The Vintage display was once again a bit hit among collectors and motorcycle aficionados.
To end the Show on a high note, 30 lucky winners qualified for the grand prize draw of a 2012 Triumph American provided by Echo Cycle, your Triumph Dealer. The elimination style draw saw Kevin Baker claiming the grand prize valued at over $9500.00.
