DC's Cycle World International Motorcycle Show

January 12, 2009

While most of America's gearheads have been tuned into Detroit, this weekend saw another major event for the mechanically inclined: the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in Washington, D. C. There, in the Big 3's second-favorite city, exhibitors from around the globe showed off the latest and, occasionally, greatest in chopper tech.

Although I didn't get to go myself, plenty of folks did, and many of them have posted shots of the event to Flickr--notably, PlanetHiker, DWest, and UrsaMinorMD. Compared to the electrified, slightly depopulated North American International Auto Show, Cycle World looks considerably louder, and the booth babes...well, they look louder, too.

If you missed it, never fear: we've just entered Cycle World's spring circuit, so there are more expos afoot, including New York, Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Greenville, S.C. (Hello, Greenville!) Send in some pics if you're lucky enough to go!
