2013 International Motorcycle Show Recap

Another year complete for the Dallas International Motorcycle Show and what a great event it was.

Thanks for all the good help we had.  Lisa Nordholm, our liaison with the show promoters set us up with a wonderful spot. For those who were not there we had one out in the open with a huge banner hanging from the rafters that said Vintage Motorcycles.  You could see it from one end of the show to the other.

We had some of the best quality bikes ever. The '36 Brough Superior with side car owned by Stewart Garrison and the '46 Indian Chief owned by Mike Vance probably got the most looks.

We had Charles Edenfield's '52 AJS, Clay Walley's freshly restored '56 Triumph Tiger, Jim Hemsworth's '74 Norton Commando 850 (winner of this raffle bike two years ago), Gary Vicksell's '50 Triumph Thunderbird, our own '75 Norton Commando 850 raffle bike, Richard Asprey's '54 Vincent Rapide, '61 BSA Gold Star and his '55 Ariel Square Four, Jerrett Martin's Triumph Thruxton Race bike, and Ryan Ambrose's Triumph Daytona 675 race bike.

Thanks guys for showing your bikes.  A special thanks to Jerrett, Ryan and Alton Gillespie for transporting all the bikes for those who could not be there to and from the convention hall. They missed a good show.

Thanks to all who worked the booth: Jay and Shirley Pope, Gary Vicksell, Mike Mediterraneo, Travis Coover, Chris Parry, Laura and Bill Keating, Louie Torres, Cathy Ramsey, Wendy and Dave Griffiths, Ron Kempf, Gary Brooks, Leroy Greene, Frank Jakab, Richard Cross, Paul Valentine, George Tuttle, Mike Vance, Dennis Tackett, and Paul Fielder-White.

We had the most profitable raffle bike sales ever at any event.  Friday night we sold $400 worth of tickets, Saturday $825 and $725 on Sunday. That is $1,950.00 for the weekend!

The gals (Cathy, Laura, and Wendy) were smoking hot - on ticket sales also. They out did the guys. Sorry I didn't get any pictures this year, my camera is broke. It's all up to Paul Valentine.

Thanks again,
Your VP, Randy.
