Over the last several years, Thunder Roads Ohio has worked to develop local and regional Bike Shows as a means of showcasing both the rides that our readers have and the amazing works of rolling art that local shops and builders have been producing. Along the way, we discovered that many local riders had never participated in a Bike Show – never considering that their bikes were “show worthy”. It turns out, though, that most riders have an appreciation – even a love of motorcycles that goes beyond the amount of chrome on a bike or if there are water spots and dust on them. We’ve hosted Bike Shows at indoor venues that have often showcased bikes with less than a dozen miles on them – and we’ve hosted Bike Shows at outdoor venues ranging from dealership parking lots to grass fields (The Devil’s Staircase, Oregonia). Throughout we’ve discovered that it’s not always the most polished that gets the attention, but it’s the love and work that goes into the bike that everyone appreciates.
For 2018, Thunder Roads Ohio will host our most extensive schedule of Bike Shows – ranging from local community shows and Bike Night Shows, to festivals and rallies, and culminating in our Championship Shows. Throughout all of them, our goal is to showcase the bikes and the passion their owners have for them. We encourage everyone to participate in the Bike Shows and have fun with them.
