I spent today at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL covering the 2014 AIMExpo Motorcycle Show! It was a fantastic experience, especially as media. I have a lot of experience with large shows, but did this one a bit differently, as i didn’t know what to expect, being my first time and only the 2nd year for the show. It turned out to be mostly a Dealer Day, with a couple dozen media members going around doing stills, getting info and some doing video. I saw some cool guys that i watch on YouTube like the Motorcycle.com crew, and everyone was very nice! I would say about 50% of the floor was related to anything streetbike, with the rest split between ATVs, scooters, and a lot of imported ‘stuff’ and really cheap booths/tables along the edges. Still, that’s about 250 vendors for street bikes, and all the big players were there! I’ll be back in a couple days as a consumer, with the wife, for a more fun bit of coverage, doing the test rides! I have a LOT of cool vids coming including overviews/first looks, brand tours, a complete show tour and some special features – stay tuned!
