On The Road Again: Chicago & Minneapolis

Our road crew is at it again, pulling double duty this weekend in snowy Chicago and Minneapolis. So get your shovel, dig yourself out, and point yourself in the direction of one of these great shows:

The 26th Annual Chicago Motorcycle Show and Parts Expo is an absolutely massive motorcycle swap meet. Part bike show, tattoo show, and bikini contest, this event attracts lots of celebs, including Dave Cook (the 2009 AMD World Champion Bike Builder), and Steve “Mongo” McMichael (the former Chicago Bears Pro Bowl defensive tackle). J&P Cycles will be there too, and it all happens this Saturday, Feb. 6, from 11am-7pm at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

If your north of Chicago and favor the Vikings over the Bears, check out this weekend’s Minneapolis International Motorcycle Show. With major motorcycle manufactures like Harley-Davidson, Ducati, BMW, “the big four,’ and almost every other manufacturer you can think of, Minneapolis is a great place to go and check out all the 2010 machines. And this isn’t a look but don’t touch type of show. You can climb all over each company’s rides and check em out for yourself without a salesman breathing down your neck.

World Class stunter Aaron Colton will be signing autographs during the show, and the Ducati Freestyle Team will be performing as well. Make your way to the Minneapolis Convention Center on 1301 Second Avenue South on Friday Feb. 5th from 4pm-9pm, Saturday Feb. 6th from 9:30am-8pm, and Sunday from 9:30am-4pm, and be sure to stop by the J&P booth (number 634) to say hello.

About the Author:

Patrick Garvin began his stint with J&P Cycles at the start of 2008 after doing some installs for us at Daytona and Sturgis for two years. Currently, Patrick splits his time between the eCommerce team and purchasing, finding new and exciting products for our website and catalog. When he’s not at his desk, he’s zigzagging across the country with J&P’s event crew. Patrick has an obsession with going fast on just about anything, a trait he shares with his 6-year-old son Race. You can usually find both of them wrenching in the garage or ripping through the fields on dirt bikes. Emma, his beautiful wife of 7-plus years, puts up with his antics and keeps his head screwed on because he certainly wouldn’t be able to find it without her.

    Hi would it be possible to let me know when the next event is. I love motorcycles and have exhausted all the shows around me, so would love to travel and experience more.
