Easyriders Bike Show

Easyriders Bike Show 2014 Anaheim

It is January and for custom bike builders and those that enjoy looking at custom bikes that means that the 2014 Easyriders Bike Show Tour is now underway. The first stop for the tour was Saturday, January 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center. I have been attending various Easyriders events as a participant or spectator since the mid-80’s and while there are definitely bikes that show up in the show year after year, it is interesting to watch the evolution of motorcycle building. Huge front wheels, etched chrome and amazing paint jobs seemed to be the theme in recent years with front wheels seemingly getting taller and fatter every year.

In addition to the motorcycle viewing and vendors providing everything from beef jerky to eternal salvation (yeah, you may have to look at the photos to get that one). For entertainment there was a dance routine performed by the Purrfect Angelz, a fashion show and live music. For the bike show, there were two classes for the judging of bikes with the People’s Choice being voted on by attendees and the Judged Class being chosen by Easyriders Magazine editors.

Next week the tour moves up north to Sacramento which will be a two day event and is usually huge in comparison to Anaheim. From Sacramento the tour moves to Charlotte, NC; followed by Nashville, TN and Columbus, OH in February. You can get full details on the Easyriders Events page. Continue reading

Easyriders Bike Show 2013 – Anaheim

These photos are from the 2013 Easyriders Bike Show held at the Anaheim Convention Center on January 5, 2013. The Easyriders Bike Show Tour is put on by Easyriders Events and travels to numerous locations around the country. It features 100’s of custom show and street bikes of every genre. It is always a visual treat; even if it is difficult to focus in all that chrome. I made it there a little earlier today than last year, when I got there a couple hours before it ended, so there were a lot more people to get in the way of my photos; but it gave me more people shots to get as well, so it all worked out.

The Easyriders Bike Show Tour continues next week in Sacramento, CA; then two weeks later they start again in Charlotte, NC; Nashville, TN and ending in Columbus, OH. You can find all the details on http://www.easyridersevents.com. I actually have a little history with the Easyriders, besides being a subscriber, in that I was in their first motorcycle rodeo and was in their first Grand Nationals. Anyway, it was a good time and I ran into a few friends. I discovered that Anaheim Brewery was right around the corner from the convention center so after checking out all the bikes I stopped in and checked out what they had on tap. All in all, it was a pretty good day. Continue reading

2012 Easyriders Bike Show Anaheim

It is that time of year again as the Easyriders Bike Show Tour kicked off yesterday at the Anaheim Convention Center. I have been pretty busy this year photographing various events and getting ready to hit the trade show circuit, I spaced out that it was happening already. Luckily, one of my Facebook friends is a roller derby girl that was giving an exhibition at the show. Her status update reminded me it was happening now, so thank you Facebook and Darla DeVill.

As this was a last minute outing for me, I did not get there until the last couple of hours of the show. By the time I got there, I suspect most of the attendees had already left. That was okay with me as it just made it easier to take photos without getting in someone’s way. The ride to Anaheim was a little faster than riding to the Sacramento show as well. Continue reading
