Monday Kickstart – Long Beach Cycle Show, FIM Awards…

Long Beach Motorcycle Show

The International Motorcycle Show descended onto the convention center in Long Beach, CA this weekend. The consumer show hosted demo rides, trade show booths, and all of rest of the typical industry show accoutrements. And even though we’ve already tested all of the motocross bikes important to us, we decided to grab some hot dogs and beers and peruse the show anyway. We came, we saw, we took pictures of stuff.

Goon-Riding With Our Users

A while back, Shift Racing sponsored a contest for best goon riding photo, and we had some classic submissions, to say the least. Now, it’s hard to live up to the goon skills of David Vuillemin and Trey Canard, but it’s fun to try nonetheless. Check out some of the classics.
