bike show in miami, on memorial day weekend?

Hello a friend of mine told me about a bike show/gathering in miami around memorial day weekend. I was wondering if ne body could shed some info on it? If it is true? Where it will be? etc..

My brother is graduating from highschool that friday and i will be in miami for the weekend, so i planned on bringing my bike down in my truck. However if nothing is going on... I'll just leave it at the house.

thanks for ne info

The problem is that the sportbike community is notoriously un-organized. At least I've noticed that in comparo to the HD crowd.

The best bet is to find a club in the area... try that angle...

Gixxer750,

I'm down here in Miami, I just went to the Miami Motorcycle Salon in Coconut Grove Convention center. In my opinion this years show was crappier than last years moto-salon... but then again... Miami doesn't have the greatest shows. If its the Motorcycle Show then it may be a little better and should be held in the same venue (Grove Convention center). As soon as I find out, I'll let you know. I'll add you to my buddy list on the forum, and when I get the info, you get the info. Also, if you find out before me, let me know too... I know ticket run from 12-20 bucks a piece...... but the weather should be nice... and I may arrive by boat, and thats always very nice.... Maybe some females too....

I'll keep you posted... Also, I got a few pictures to post from the Moto-Salon, not that many but just a few that were photo worthy. I'll let you know when I do that.

Heres what I've found so far...

Urban Beach Week (Which I think is a little racist personally...



and...

Miami Motorcycle Salon which just passed this last weekend. (Pics in signature)

If I get any word for any official shows or anything of the sort. I will let you guys know. There will be a ton of motorcycles on the beach for Urban beach weekend or whatever thats for sure, and tons of celebrities but thats not exactly safe. I personally would'nt ride that weekend, but since you're visiting, you wont be riding, so I say you may want to check out the beach... (leave the family at home, bring the lil brother, and a camcorder )

Also, if you come on a Thursday, there is always a meetup at Fudruckers on 104th and US1 every thursday of every week of every month, and then after the meetup dies down a bit, the riders go ride down to Coconut Grove and relax for a bit, or be really annoying revving their bikes continually... (ughh)

Anyway, I'll keep you posted.

Its real easy to find the beach.... Just find I95 from wherever you are and head EAST! and obviously South if you're coming from the north or north if coming from the south....

but so far... I hear no word about shows. :/

But I'll definitely be down there sometime that weekend, just to check out the local influx of hot "urban" girls....

Apparently the term "urban" is PC now
