Like most anything, the Timonium Motorcycle Show is what you make of it. It's the first decent mid-Atlantic event of the year, and people and vendors come from miles around to make this one. I saw vendors from as far away as New York, Florida, and Ohio. Bike dealers show up too, and bring more bikes there than to the DC show held in January. Lots of goodies to look over.
And speaking of looking over the goodies, the fine people from Strip Club Choppers were there in case the bikes didn't quite do it for you.....
The Timonium show gets mixed reviews. Most people hate it because of parking, a sometimes-long wait in traffic just to get to the venue, and the crowds inside. Go there at the wrong time and you'll spend an hour in traffic, park a 1/4 mile away, and won't see half the stuff because people are packed in like sardines.
Hooray! The vendors were selling the kind of stuff bikers (this one, anyway) need. Pitbull Lifts (Tennessee) was there again, and another outift with a lot of great parts for trailers, towing, tie-downs, etc. There was yet another with a great selection of loading ramps, and one more selling some nice trailers. Great prices on leather jackets and chaps at the Hot Leathers booth, too, but I resisted for a change.
Barely. If that little gal would have smiled one more time, and gave me one more peek down her shirt, I'd have another leather jacket in my closet.
And after lunch, I carefully and slowly checked out the Strip Club Choppers area, just to make sure things weren't getting out of hand. I made a couple passes....didn't want to miss anything! And yeah, took another look at bikes....After all, it WAS a bike show.
Bike Builder Ron Finch, was there along with Michelle Smith (hot!, but for the life of me, I can't remember what she was famous for....), plus and Emilio Rivera from Sons of Anarchy!
Good time, if you time it right, and what the Hell else are you going to do on a cold February day between football season and NASCAR? Check it out sometime.
