The New York International Motorcycle Show by Private Jet
The New York Motorcycle Show is an exhilarating exhibition for seasoned motorcyclists and bright-eyed amateurs alike. The exhibition, which is the New York chapter of the nationwide Progressive Motorcycle Shows, will kick off at the Javits Center in New York on the 9th and run over the weekend until the 11th December 2016.
Fly private and ogle over the newest motorcycle models and accessories in the industry, and engage with all the well-known and emerging brands and craftsmen. They will be showcasing their best wares in street bikes, dirt bikes, cruisers, scooters and ATVs.
There is no lack of entertainment at this show. Front and centre is the Progressive Stage, which will be spurring on rock n’ roll die-hards with live music by local musicians. Enquiring minds will be titillated by insightful talks by leading motorcycling experts and craftsmen as they delve into the ins and outs of the industry, whilst in The Progressive Studio right next door is a spectacle of motorcycle-inspired artwork. Here illustrators create unique throttle-head masterpieces, live for the audience.
As every year, the Progressive Parlor provides the best in ‘Throttle Therapy’. Here you can get your shoes shined, beard groomed and your skin adorned with a temporary airbrush tattoo – everything you might need to fit right into the true motorcycle lifestyle.
The show is a welcome location for parents and kids too. The Allstate Kids Zone is available for children ages 18 months to 5 years to experience adventure on two wheels. The play park offers free use of Strider demo bikes to test out on a varied terrain track, keeping the young ones busy as their parents peruse bigger bike models.
New York has no shortage of luxury accommodation available. However, space is limited, so it is advisable to book accommodation early. The 414 Hotel, located just a minute’s walk from the Javits Convention Centre, is rated one of the top 15 hotels in New York. It is a calm and intimate combination of boutique hotel and bed & breakfast – the perfect place to kick back after a long day of roaring motors.
The Sky Room is New York’s highest rooftop lounge and offers unmatched 360-degree views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. This high-energy oasis offers the best experience in nightlife, only a short walk away from the exhibition.
