The Vancouver Motorcycle Show runs this weekend, after a very extended break. There’s been no Vancouver show since COVID-19 came along (2021-2023 shows were canceled). So, this is the first chance to get out and see new bikes for some time.

What to expect? There have been some changes at the MMIC (Motorcycle & Moped Industry Council, the body that organizes this show), but it should be familiar stuff. The format is the usual Friday-Sunday showtimes, and just like before, the show runs at Tradex in Abbotsford. Just like before, Friday is SHE Rides night—but this year, they’re running a BOGO promo on ladies’ tickets instead of a 50-percent-off deal.

As always at the shows, most OEMs are attending (after all, they own the MMIC shows) but some will not be there. The ExPLR Zone area will be at the Vancouver show for the first time, with a focus on adventure bike riding and travel. This feature debuted at the Toronto show last year, and if you’re interested in this growing segment of the moto-world, it’s a great way to eyeball some gear to see what might work for you in 2024.

Of course you’ll see lots of bikes (and ATVs/UTVs) on display, along with general riding gear and gadgetry, but we’re not sure what clubs/race orgs/vintage bike groups will be on-site. The updated MMIC website doesn’t tell us such stuff, but we do know show hours are noon-9 PM Friday, 10 AM-8 PM Saturday and 10 AM-5 PM Sunday. Tickets start at $20.60 for adults (aged 15-64); seniors (aged 65+) get in for $15.48; juniors (aged 6-14) and students pay $15.48 and a family of two adults and two juniors pays $49.30. Kids under 5 pay nothing, but must be accompanied by an adult. More details here.
