This is your chance to see the new models of ATV’s, motorcycles, scooters and side-by-sides from the major manufacturers all in one place.

“This year’s theme Your Show, Your Way speaks to the diversity, uniqueness, variety of rides and riders”, says Show Manager, Laurie Paetz. “What you ride and why you ride is different for everyone. The Show is a celebration of every aspect of the lifestyle.”

Whether you prefer to hit the highway, cruise the streets, venture off-road or tackle the track, you will find it all at the Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton. Get a jump on the season and admire the shiny chrome, soft leather seats and latest riding technology.  Dare to dream, or choose the bike that will be parked in your garage and ready to roll once the snow melts.

No matter whether you are a die-hard rider, a relative beginner, or considering experiencing the thrill of riding for the first time the Show has you covered.  There is plenty of safety gear, riding apparel, training schools, aftermarket accessories, clubs and associations to choose from.

In addition there are features, activities and events geared to riders of all ages.  She Rides Night will appeal specifically to the female riding enthusiast.  Ladies that come to the Show on Friday, January 11th after 5:00 pm will receive ½ price admission, and can enter to win a Kawasaki Versys X300, courtesy of Kawasaki.
