One of the first big shows of 2007 is the Motorcycle Expo in Clearwater, near Tampa, weekend of January 27/28. The 15 to 20,000 spectators expected this year will be treated to much more than the usual rally activities, vendors of parts, accessories, dealers, demo rides, live entertainment, bike show etc. During the event, the best builders of Florida, all brands, are invited to compete in a Build-Off with $15,000 of cash prize. It’s an invitational show and at this date 83 bikes by 61 different builders have been entered. By the way, since you ask me all the time where I will be next, know that I will be there for all weekend as a guest of the organizer Full Throttle Magazine. I should bring new rolling chassis & shirts, judge the show, have felt pens with me to sign whatever you want, and party all night with you at the VIP party. Vendors & participants can get more info at: Florida Bike Build-Off.
