TORONTO (Feb. 4, 2016) – For Ontario’s riding enthusiasts, it’s not groundhogs on a cloudy day that signifies spring is just around the corner. What gets their motor running is the arrival of the Motorcycle Show-Toronto presented by Dalton Timmis Insurance, riding into the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place, February 19-21.

The 29th edition of the Show is Toronto’s stop on the motorcycle manufacturers’ national seven-city tour, which kicked off earlier this year in Western Canada. It showcases the industry’s biggest brands, their newest models, and the latest technical innovations for motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides and scooters, along with riding gear, accessories and travel destinations.

In additional to the more than 500 bikes on display, there are thrilling stunt shows, beginner riding lessons for children, a special night for female riders, and two big draws for new motorcycles.

This year’s highlights include:

2016 Triumph Street Twin Grand Prize Draw: One lucky Toronto Motorcycle Show-goer will win a new 2016 Triumph Street Twin, with the keys awarded on the third and final day of the Show.

She Rides Nite: Women are taking to motorcycle riding at a record pace and we’ll celebrate that on the Friday evening of the Show (Feb. 19). She Rides Nite features half-price Show admission for ladies after 5 pm, and industry experts will be on hand to provide information and advice specific to the needs of the female rider. There’s a ladies-only draw that night to win a new 2016 Kawasaki Ninja 300.

Friday night parking is free for all show-goers after 5pm.

Amazing Air Brush work was featured at the North American International Motorcycle Supershow in Toronto Jan 08, 09 & 10 2016

Building an amazing Custom Chopper is one thing. The final paint and finish is quite another.

Speed Trix featured about a dozen Custom bikes at the North American International Motorcycle Supershow. Each one had an incredible paint job.

Not far from the Speed Trix display was an Air Brush display by “Wizard Custom Paint“. Patience and Artistic skill shone. They had a coupe of Custom bikes which they had Air Brushed. The following are a few pics of their amazing skill.

I have lots more pics of the incredible Air Brush work which was featured on the Custom bikes on display at the North American International Motorcycle Supershow in Toronto.

Will post more pics soon…
