Springfield Motorcycle Show

Post by dogboy443 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 12:24 pm

If anyone is interested, the Springfield Motorcycle Show is tomorrow and Sunday at the Big E fairgrounds in West Springfield, MA. I've heard from Ural of NE and they will be there with a booth and a few bikes to show off. Decent all around show. Marks Motorsports is always there with their Triumphs, Zero's and Royal Enfield's. Indian of Springfield is always there and there is a classic bike area with bikes going back to the 40's and 50's. I'll make sure to bring my camera and take some shots.

Cheers,
Mark

I went, Ural had a small set up, two bikes (2018's) but a nice spot where they had a lot of people crossing through. They were more near the dealers than the other bike companies. They had quite a few people stopping in and checking out the bikes.

Ok. I guess Springfield has something to offer with these arguments on hand.

Sorry couldn't resist. :wink:
