Sacramento Easyriders Bike Show Jan. 14-15
Tuesday, January 10, 2012
Motorcycle USA is stoked because what’s becoming a rite of winter is rapidly approaching. We’re packing up our bags in preparation for the annual run to Sacramento for the 2012 Easyriders Bike Show
. The show is the perfect pick-me-up for an otherwise down period as far as cruiser events go and is always a good way to break the chain of winter doldrums.
Last year Easyriders had Jax (Charlie Hunnam) from the Sons of Anarchy on hand as a special guest and you’d have thought Elvis was in the house by the reaction of fans who showed up to get an autograph or take a picture with the star. I can only imagine what affect twice the SOA star power will have as both Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Lyla (Winter Zoli) are scheduled to attend this year’s event.
While having a couple of Sons of Anarchy stars on-hand is all good, we’re looking forward to the annual custom bike show. This year they’ll be dishing out 59 awards in both judged and People’s Choice classes. The show is always heavy on custom Harley-Davidsons in all shapes and sizes, but custom bike builders from the NorCal scene like AFT Customs
, Kraus Motor Co and Custom Design Studios generally represent as well. While these shops aren’t confirmed, notable custom bike builders Paul Yaffe (Bagger Nation) and Ralph Randolph
(Knockout Motorcycles) are both scheduled to be attending.
On the entertainment side, the Easyriders 2012 Tattoo Gallery will feature the area’s best tattoo artists, the Purrfect Angelz, the dance troupe who recently gained fame for their performance on “America’s Got Talent” are scheduled to perform, live music will be provided by Hemme, and “The Sacred City Derby Girls” will be providing women’s roller derby action.
It’s time for the first custom bike show of the year. If you’re in the Northern California area, be sure to check out the Easyriders Bike Show
