Photos from Motorcycle Expo

I attended the Motorcycle Expo yesterday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, in Commerce City, Colorado. It was nice to walk around the displays, although the attendance seemed to be kinda sparse. I noticed Grand Prix Motorsports there, and checked out their electric motorcycles from Zero. Glad they are stocking them and wish them the best. I also saw Unique Rides with their Urals and a Honda Trike. ABATE of Colorado displayed several race bikes, and the State Police performed demo runs on their Harleys. I had never seen a stunt bike up close before, and noticed the dented up gas tank and hole in the pillion seat, I guess for sitting on the tank and doing wheelie stunts. Looks like they also had a brake lever on the left side, right above the clutch. Useful while they’re sitting on the tank.

It was a very friendly event, and I hope to catch the next one. Full set of photos here on Flickr.
