You know one of the main recurring topics of the motorcycle industry. Attract young bikers. Some are talking, some are acting to insure our industry future. Like this group of next generation builders touring the country under the label “Limpnickie Lot” (because it’s the name of the 1st place where they started to gather in Daytona during Bike Week), just doing their own things: having fun showing their bikes, their hand made custom parts, skateboarding, listening to punk rock and heavy metal and many other improvised cool activities that you do when you are born with the sign X or Y generation sign above your head.
On a rally parking lot near you they are coming, but first they will make a stop in Cincinnati at the V-Twin Expo this weekend where they will show to the next generation of motorcycle dealers how to have fun while promoting the American Manufacturing spirit and spreading the passion for motorcycles to a younger generation. They will distribute the “Limpnickie Lot Builders Manual” a collection of the new generation builders, artists and performers, all in one convenient catalogue featuring bios of cutting edge artists and Vaudevillian performers, some of the best hand made American Parts on the market today and tons of pictures from the year they had on the road. This coming weekend on their V-Twin Expo show booth (#2619) they will project a video presentation of their 2008 show tour. Professionals will perform on a full size skateboarding pipe and music will be loud. Since I am invited to join (although I am a boomer), I will report from the floor.
