IMS Show not coming to Washington, D.C!

20 Oct

IMS_home_logoThat’s right, you read that correctly. The Progressive International Motorcycle Show is not making a stop in our nation’s capital this year. The closest shows will be in New York City, N.Y. and Cleveland, Ohio. There will be only 10 shows this year for the “world’s largest motorcycle tour show”.  Other cities dropped this year were San Mateo, CA and Seattle, WA. Portland, OR. takes the place of Seattle, all other cities are the same as last year. It seems like a trimming down of the schedule the past few years. In 2013-14 there were 12 shows, 2014-15 there were 11 shows, and this year just 10 shows.

This comes as a shock to me. This is the first time in my motorcycle memory that the IMS has not made a stop in, or close to, D.C. Needless to say I’m very bummed out by this news. I look forward to going to the show, getting to see the new bikes, and usually hanging out with a few friends for the day. Not this year.

I know that NY and Ohio are certainly close enough that I could make the trip, but I’m sure it’s not as cheap as a Metro ride. I will now need to find some other mid-winter distraction for my motorcycle fantasies.
