The 2015 AIMExpo happened this past weekend Oct 15 – 18th at the Orange County Convention Center. This is a trade show for motorcycle industry people, but it’s open to the public on the 17th and 18th.
At the public portion of the event, you can get up close and personal with motorcycles of every make and model. If you are in the market for a new bike, this is a good show to be at. There are lots of accessory vendors, too. Everything from music speaker systems for ATV’s, Jeeps, etc. to clothing.
I was able to sit on many different bikes, and get a feel for what it was like to be on one. If I had already taken a Motorcycle Safety Driving course, I could have actually test driven the motorcycles, as well.
This is a very family friendly event. They have ATV training and demo areas, and my daughter Abby and I both drove an ATV. It’s important to have all the safety gear, and they provided it for our little adventure.
We had fun this year! And I recommend going next year if you are looking for accessories or are just interested in motor sports. If you are shopping, it’s a very relaxed atmosphere. I did not feel the pressure to buy from anyone like can happen at dealerships. As soon as we know of next year’s dates, we’ll let you know…and maybe have more tickets to giveaway.
Thanks to AIMExpo for hosting us on the public days!
