CALGARY, AB (December 15, 2016) - The Motorcycle Show – Calgary returns to the BMO Centre, Stampede Park January 6-8, 2017. This is Southern Albertans first opportunity of the season to check out hundreds of 2017 motorcycles, side-by-sides, ATVS and scooters from the industry’s major manufacturers.

“The Motorcycle Show – Calgary is the first stop on the seven city Canadian tour and is a highly anticipated event among the riding community,” says Laurie Paetz, Show Manager, ”this Show is a riding enthusiasts playground, offering all things bike related no matter what the age of the rider.”

Opening night is a salute to the ladies, whether she be a seasoned rider or one that is considering taking up the sport. She Rides kicks off the Show on Friday, January 6th, all women will receive half price admission after 5:00 pm. The evening will wrap up with one lucky lady riding away on a brand new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 courtesy of Canadian Kawasaki Motors and Blackfoot Motosports.
