Easyriders 2013 Bike Shows Kick off Jan. 5
Friday, December 28, 2012
The Sacramento Easyriders Bike Show tour always attracts a crowd in Sacramento. A little star power goes a long ways. 'Chibs' brought out the SOA fans to last year's shows.
A new year is about to begin. Which means it’s time once again for the Easyriders 2013 Bike Show Tour
. Over the last few years, making the trip down to Sacramento to take in the show has been a great way to break the winter doldrums. Tons of killer custom motorcycles to see, friends to catch up with, new products and gear to see, and high energy stage shows like the Purrfect Angelz and Hemme always aim to please.
This year’s series of shows has the potential to be the best yet. Star appeal will be provided by a couple of the guys from the popular “Sons of Anarchy” series as Charlie “Jax” Hunnam and Ryan “Opie” Hurst will be making guest appearances. They’ve added one of my favorite bike builders of all time to this year’s lineup, Michigan’s metal master himself, Ron Finch. Ol’ Finch will be joining Bagger Nation’s Paul Yaffe and Kendall Johnson of Killer Clown Performance on the tour.
Two of my favorite industry artists will also be featured at the show. This year’s Easyriders tour will have a special display of David Mann artwork, including a handful of originals along with prints for purchase. Our friend Michael Lichter, who has been capturing the motorcycle lifestyle through the lenses of his cameras for the last 30 years, will also have a gallery of his work at the show.
If that’s not enough, Michael Ballard and Angie from the Full Throttle Saloon will be meeting and greeting fans, the Purrfect Angelz will be doing their thing on-stage, and 59 awards will be presented at the custom bike show. The tour includes five stops starting in Anaheim, CA, January 5. Stops along the way include Sacramento, Charlotte, and Nashville before the grand finale in Columbus, Ohio February 8 – 10. We’ll be at the Sac show January 12 so if you can’t make it to one of the shows, check back for full coverage courtesy of Motorcycle USA.
