The Big Show

August 31, 2015 | By Mike Seate

To say that we’re overwhelmed and truly stoked by the amazing number of custom cafe bikes and people who showed up last Sunday for our 8th Annual Reader’s Ride-In Bike Show would be an understatement. This was the first time we’d staged the event at our Sewickley HQ instead of at Mid-Ohio during AMA Vintage Days and to be honest, we were unsure whether we’d see three or four motorbikes come rolling in at most. Instead, the turnout was nothing short of gi-normous with all sorts of radical machines filling – more like overflowing- from our Beall Way address and onto the surrounding streets. Supportive, smiling and full of fun, the crowd truly cheered on each of the seven class winners who deserved all the credit they received and then some. We won’t ruin it by revealing too much in the way of visuals from the event as we’ve set aside a good ten pages in our upcoming October/November issue to cover this year’s blow-out. Thanks readers- you made this year’s show a real winner and we can’t wait to stage an even bigger, better event in 2016.
