What does the International Motorcycle Super Show mean to clubs, riders, enthusiasts and vendors? The question about why BOS attends the show is frequently asked but it seems anyone who has a booth at the motorcycle show is there for a common reason. With this show annually bringing in over 50 000 attendees this show offers a huge opportunity for exposure to the masses. With the show being a three day show through the weekend, it allows anyone who wants to leave a footmark on the motorcycle culture of Ontario the perfect the chance to do so.
Without a doubt once you step foot into the Toronto International Centre it is easy to see the wide array of causes that inspire vendors and the likes to commit such a large chunk of time to being present at the show. As of the past couple of years the Toronto bike scene has come under heavy public scrutiny as being a culture that promotes criminal activity on the street with no regard for the law. It is safe to say that most clubs that show up over the weekend want to show and prove this negative attention is nothing more than selective media bias.
One common passion for motorcycles creates a bond between clubs and promotes deep friendships. There are an endless amounts of charititable ventures that are supported. To name a few; The Blue Tie ride, which raises money for prostate cancer as well as The Gatehouse child abuse prevention campaign, Human Concern International Spread the warmth campaign helping donate items of need to the homeless of Toronto, and Youth With Style Youth Without Shelter volunteer day. There are many more examples of generosity that are visible at this show, however to talk about them all would be a blog of its own.
BOSrc specifically attends this show every year to continue to display our progressive nature. It is very important to state that the club is a co-ed riding club inclusive of all bikes with men and women supported equally. The women of BOS are proud to encourage more female riders to hop on a bike and twist the throttle. Off motorcycles our club is a close knit family that does as much as possible to give back to the community. The motorcycle show is a prime opportunity to display the work that has been completed around the community as well as promote upcoming endeavours. Lastly BOSrc finds it extremely important to skip trends and instead look to the future with the ideas that will lead to positive reflections on the motorcycle past-time and the people that take part in such a liberating activity. As motorcycle riders continue to be introduced to the streets the Toronto International Motorcycle Super Show offers a one stop shop to equip any person with all the tools to go out and have a fun time on 2.
