Every February, the motorcycle industry makes a trek to Indianapolis for the Dealernews.com Dealer Expo. The trade show, which takes over the Indiana Convention Center, brings nearly every discipline of motorcycling under one roof for an extended weekend and allows the brands and retailers the chance to meet and discuss the upcoming year’s products and sales techniques. For many, this is the only chance they have to meet face-to-face with those they do business with during the year, which makes it almost a necessary trip. Members of our advertising staff, which included Nick Wozniak, Forrest Hayashi, and Dominic Gaytan went to the Midwest over the weekend and compiled a gallery of all the “must see” displays, as well as a few promo girls.

After the day’s deals are done, everyone’s attention turns towards finding an activity for the night. On Saturday night, the TWMX crew took over the Ugly Monkey bar for an evening of drinks and karaoke. The party has established itself as a mainstay in every industry insider’s weekend tales, and rightfully so. Thanks to Motocross University, RK/Excel, Shoei, Metal Mulisha, and Scott for their support in making the event what it is.
