2013 Washington DC Progressive International Motorcycle show

Motorcycle enthusiasts from across the nation anticipate the one show that gives them the opportunity to see, feel and demo hundreds of street bikes, cruisers, dirt bikes and ATVs for riders of all experience levels. The 2013 Progressive International Motorcycle (IMS) show descends upon the Washington Convention Center to display the latest gear and aftermarket accessories, entertainment, seminars and most important of all, the motorcycles.

The IMS has a lot of things to keep the interest of the attendees. Race enthusiasts took over the $1M MotoGP section while checking out race bikes from known racers such as Ben Spies and Bradley Smith. Hosting this section was a beautiful umbrella girl to really give you the feel as if you are at the race track.

For those interested in the custom motorcycle world, there is the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show presented by J&P Cycles. This is one of the best custom motorcycle shows in the nation showing off stretched swingarm and powder coated sportbikes down to custom painted cruisers with 26 inch wheels. It is definitely a site to see. An added treat to this years’ show was Suzuki contributing two custom GSX-1300R Hayabusas to be won in a raffle.

Motorcycle stunt fans were not left out with an exhilarating stunt show from the XDL Street. There was no shortage of wheelies, stoppies and burnouts to send the crowd wild. Once the stunt show ended, patrons ventured over to the Pit Stop Challenge. This section had two motorcycles setup on a stage in which two contestants would go head up in timed drills for prizes. While the adults were busy with the challenge, the kids were busy at the Strider Adventure Zone scooting around a simulated track on balance bikes getting a feel for one thing everyone involved loves, motorcycles.

The 2013 Progressive International Motorcycle show was a success that fulfilled many patrons needs and wants. Each year the attendance grows larger and brings new innovative attractions to keep the show fresh. Be sure to check it out when it comes to a city near you.
