American International Motorcycle Expo
Moto enthusiasts flock to the American International Motorcycle Expo to honor the eternal cool of the motorcycle. On the premises, they browse booths from top industry brands, such as Yamaha, AAA, and helmet-maker Shoei. Most motorcycle-makers’ displays feature real vehicles, so visitors can try out the seats and make sure the handlebars aren’t silver handlebar mustaches in disguise. There’s also demo rides, available on the terrain outside and inside the convention. During one of 2013’s events, a speaker grabbed the crowd’s attention by driving a bike onstage.
