A few weeks back, we told you that the Clutch Society section was returning to the February Toronto Motorcycle Show. This ain’t no fuddy-duddy buttoned-down factory display; this is a hip hangout featuring custom bikes, their builders, and other people from the contemporary urban moto scene.

Once again, the Clutch Society show-within-a-show is organized (or “curated,” as the cool kids say these days) by Dan Lim, a very well-known name in Toronto’s two-wheeled world thanks to his work with The Moto Foto project. That means you can expect more of the same thing we saw last time this ran in 2020, the last time we had a Toronto Motorcycle Show in February: hand-built custom bikes and motorcycle equipment and apparel, a licensed bar and more.

But this time, there will be a lot more to see than the original Clutch Society: “Inspired by the distinct gritty, rugged and raw feel of the home garage, this year’s edition of Clutch Society has more than doubled in size to feature more world-class pro and grassroots builders, more custom bikes, and a unique mix of moto lifestyle artisans and vendors,” the press release reads. “The GTA is one of Canada’s leading hubs for this new wave of riders. Clutch Society will reflect the diverse range of moto community groups, with women and indigenous riders, riding social groups, riders who do good for the community, and moto movie buffs.”

Builders at this year’s show include:

If you were there in 2020, you know that this section was extremely busy, and it seems it’ll be well worth a visit again in 2023.

This year, the show runs February 17-19 at the Enercare Centre in Exhibition Place. As usual, most of the big OEMs are there with displays. There’s rider training for kids with the Striders, STAYCYC and the Yamaha Riding Academy. There’s a new ExPLR adventure riding area, and the Original Garage Moto V-twin exhibit.

Show admission is: $20 for Adults (15+); $15 for Seniors (65+) $15; $11 for Youths (6-14 years); $48 for a Family Pass (2 adults, 2 youths) $48;  and women get in after 5 PM for $10 on She Rides Night, on February 17.

  1. Just fucking idiotic. One really good reason to NOT attend the show; the thought this wanker may get some of my admission fee,
