What does 3 days, 27,000 visitors, 11 major manufactures, 200 exhibitors booths, a Kawasaki MX Extreme show, Mini Road Racing, Trails Show and hundreds of new motorcycles make?

One great motorcycle show.. The Calgary 2005 Motorcycle show to be exact.

The Calgary Motorcycle Show is now in it’s 4th great year. Total Motorcycle has been there since the 1st one and each year it keeps getting bigger and better. So hopes are high that the 4th Calgary Motorcycle Show will surpass the other years ones, if that is possible.
