The Vancouver Motorcycle Show rolls into Abbotsford’s Tradex from January 23rd until January 25th, highlighting the motorcycling industry’s loudest engines, coolest exhibitions and latest trends, along with death-defying riders to watch and terrific contests to enter.
Vancouver Motorcycle Show Highlights
Deeley Harley-Davidson Project LiveWire™ Experience Tour, an exhibition of the very first Harley-Davidson with an electric engine. This exhibit offers Harley fans a chance to test ride this one-of-a-kind bike as well as an opportunity to check out their Jumpstart™ Demo riding simulator for one weekend only.
Back by popular demand is SHE Rides Night, celebrating women who ride and those who want to take up the sport. Between 5:00pm and 8:30pm on Friday, January 23rd, admission for all female attendees is half price, and women (18+) are encouraged to enter the ladies-only draw, where one lucky rider will take home a brand new 2015 Kawasaki EX300, courtesy of Canadian Kawasaki and your local Kawasaki dealers. In addition to the contest, all Show attendees that night will have a chance to meet Valerie Thompson – America’s Queen of Speed and 5-time motorcycle land speed record holder, presented by BMW Motorrad Canada.
For young visitors, the Show is bringing back the always-popular Yamaha Riding Academy for Kids, a fun and interactive course designed for children aged 6-12, who will learn how to ride a Yamaha TTR or PW in a safe and monitored off-road environment.
The always thrilling, fan-favourite Team Empire, are also returning to this year’s Show, presented by Parts Canada. Nick “Apex” Brocha and Ernie “Edub” Vigil are professional motorcycle freestyler stunt riders, constantly pulling off daring feats that push the limits of what a person can do on two wheels.
On four wheels, Bill Hitchon will be doing equally daring ATV stunts all weekend. In addition, the Canadian Pacific Trials Association will be performing at the Show, where riders will manoeuvre through a specially designed obstacle course, all without touching their feet to the ground. Take a break from the Show floor, grab some fresh air, and be captivated by the talent of each of these riders in their Shows running three times a day.
The Vancouver Motorcycle Show’s grand prize is a 2015 Triumph Bonneville Newchurch Commemorative Special Edition motorcycle. This is a unique bike as less than thirty will be made available in Canada.
Hours are 10:00am to 9:00pm on Friday, 10:00am to 8:00pm on Saturday, and 10:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday.
