2017 Progressive International Motorcycle Show Dallas, TX

This weekend we had the privilege of attending the 2017 Progressive International Motorcycle Show held here in Dallas Texas. It was a 3-day affair, starting on Friday and ending Sunday evening smack dab in the middle of the Cowboys game that we all are still recovering from.

We went to the show with two goals in mind, find the best of the best for 2017 and discover some builders who dare to take the word ‘custom’ to another level and what we did find was exactly that!

All of the heavy hitters were in attendance including Harley Davidson, BMW, Indian, Honda, Victory, Kawasaki and much much more.

With that said let’s start with Harley Davidson:

The big thing for Harley this year is the Milwaukee Eight Engine which is the ninth engine released in Harley history.

“The Milwaukee-Eight engine carries the legacy of Harley-Davidson Big Twins into the future,” “While respecting the essential Big Twin character, we’ve created an all-new motor. Every aspect of performance, durability and styling has been improved as a direct response to the voice of Harley-Davidson customers around the world.”

We spoke with Chris who shared with us her favorite bike within the display, that blue beauty pictured above.

We absolutely loved hanging with the guys and gals at Indian, their display was phenomenal and their bikes were amazing. One of the big take aways was actually the Victory display because as announced recently Polaris who makes both Indian and Victory bikes will be focusing solely on the Indian Motorcycle Brand.

“This decision will improve the profitability of Polaris and our global motorcycle business, and will materially improve our competitive stance in the industry,”

We were pretty excited about the Ducati display having worked with them before on the motorsport apparel side of things. The Scrambler was the star of the show, considered a number one pick for 2017.

Custom Builds
