International Spring Motorcycle Show on this weekend at the International Centre March 17-18, 2012 (Saturday 10-9 and Sunday 10-5) and pick up a shiny chopper. Free parking and you can print a $3.00 off coupon right from their website. The Saturday SuperShow was jammed with bikers and wish they were bikers checking out the bikes, fashion and motorcycle accessories. See the ladies of the Supershow here.
The weather was perfect for riding your bike to the show and they had preferred parking areas for the hundreds of motorcycles that showed up. Vintage and new and used bikes tried to compete (and failed) against the brilliant styling and the detailed paintings that adorned the custom bikes as the superstars of the SuperShow competed for supremacy in Hall One.
The three halls of the Toronto International Centre were full of bikes and the amount of walking made me glad of the large beer garden and the Hall One beer stand. It was interesting to see the original motorcycles which were really bicycles with a small motors and gas tank. They have since evolved into sport bikes or the extremely large cruisers like the Honda Gold Wing.
Some visitors to the show. The entrance lineups to the show weren't too bad because they moved fast

I'm feeling bad to the bone - but motorcycles will do that to you, much like that guys head in the photo above, now just a skull.
At the show we saw exhibitors representing the Toronto National Motorcycle and Tattoo show during the last weekend of March and the upcoming Niagara Motorcycle Show in July. So there is a few opportunities to get out the bikes you just bought at the Spring Show and head over to visit with some new found motorcycle friends.
