Southern Ontario will get a new ride-in motorcycle show next month, with Tribal Macchines debuting in Guelph on June 1.

There’s no admission fee for Tribal Macchines, and all ages, all bikes and all brands are welcome to attend.

This one-day outdoor show will run 10 AM-7 PM at Royal Distributing’s headquarters at 925 Woodlawn Road in Guelph. Of course Royal Distributing will have its own gear on display, but there will also be other vendors on display, as well as other exhibitors. Dan Lim and Suzy Johnston, the organizers behind the Clutch Society section at previous editions of the Toronto Motorcycle Show, are involved with Tribal Macchines, as well as Johnny Apblett (who worked with Crooked Clubhouse and Highway Heathens stunt team), so if you’re familiar with their events in the past, that’s probably more-or-less what you can expect to see at this show as well.

Indeed, the Highway Heathens will perform at Tribal Macchines, as well as the Ride Rich stunt team. If you want to learn how to stunt yourself, the Wheelie Demons School will also run student demos at the show. And if you’re more interested in custom bikes, the Bad Livin’ Road Show will have customs on display, as a teaser for what’s coming at their festival/campout in July.

Tribal Macchines will have music all day long, prize giveaways, and if you’re hungry, food trucks can solve your woes! The June 1 date is also the same day as the local Ride for Dad fundraiser, and this show will serve as a checkpoint for that fundraiser ride.
