Vancouver Motorcycle Show runs this weekend

Kids on bikes: Just what the world needs. We just wish we were allowed to go for a ride too!

Hey ho, let’s go, to the Vancouver Motorcycle Show. Once again, the three-day MMIC show is back at Tradex in Abbotsford, running Friday-Sunday this weekend.

Most of the manufacturers will be there with displays of new-for-2020 bikes, and returning models. There’s stunt shows from the VanCity Stunt Riders and the Seattle Cossacks, and Clinton Smout is back with his how-to demonstrations. Ethan Barkley, 18-time CMDRA champion, is there to show off his trophy-winning machinery. Class6cycles and West Coast Classics and Cafe Racers will be displaying their vintage and custom bikes. You can grab refreshments in the Moto Lifestyle Lounge, and your kids can learn about  motorcycle basics in the Yamaha Riding Academy (ages 6-12).

Of course, there’s lots of other stuff going on, and you can get a more complete list at the show’s website.
