Easyriders Bike Show Is Not For Me

I just got back from the Easyriders Bike Show in San Diego, CA. I won't be going back.

I've been to a number of these bike shows now, and they're all the same. I'm not sure why I keep going to them. I guess it's mainly for the ride, and to hang out with friends.

I'll admit, the Easyriders Bike Show is a competition for custom bikes and choppers, and the folks who participate in these events consider it worthwhile. And that's fine, I'm just not sure why I go to these shows.

First, the bikes there are indeed pretty cool and awesome. But for me, when you've seen one, you've them all. Choppers, bobbers, vintage, custom stock, it's all the same to me.

Then there are the vendors. Right off the bat, forget about finding anything for metric bikes, they're just never there. Even at the Las Vegas Bikefest, at the vendor village, I only saw one vendor booth for a metric bike, and it was just the Las Vegas chapter of Star Touring. Otherwise, about half of the vendors are selling clothes, and leatherwear. I've been looking for a denim vest, but you never find them at these shows. Why doesn't anyone sell denim vests at bike shows?

And there's always the motorcycle attorneys. Does anyone ever stop to talk to these guys?

The show itself wasn't all that big either. You're pretty much done in 60-90 minutes. And for this, they charge you $16.00 per person to get in! And that's on top of the $10.00 for parking!!!

I'll go to the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show however, just so I can see all the new stock bikes. But as for the choppers and the vendors, I'm through. If I ever end up going to another one of those shows, it's just to hang out with friends.
