If you’re a motorcycle rider, the next best thing to cruising down the road on your bike is hanging out with people who love motorcycles as much as you do. So now that the riding season is over for most motorcyclists, it’s a great time to attend the International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis. The show takes place Dec. 8-10 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, and the Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center (MMSC) will be there!

We’ll have a booth at the show each day. Motorcycle Safety Foundation Certified RiderCoaches – the people that teach MMSC courses – will be there to answer your questions about training. Specifically, they can help you figure out which training course would be most appropriate for you to register for in 2018.

If you visit the MMSC booth, you’ll also get to try the Safe Motorcyclist Awareness and Recognition Trainer (SMARTrainer). The SMARTrainer is a stationary motorcycle simulator that gives you a virtual environment in which to test your skills. Besides the seat and handlebars, it has all the standard motorcycle controls. You can choose from a wide range of scenarios, and the RiderCoach supervising the SMARTrainer can point out skills that may need improvement.

Of course, the MMSC will also stock the booth with lots of different goodies, including new rider training brochures (grab one for a new rider you know!), sharing the road brochures, laws and regulations cards (a really handy reference to have on hand), bumper stickers, and reflective decals.

So get your tickets to the International Motorcycle Show today. Adults are $16 each; kids 11 and under are free. Have a great time checking out the main stage speakers, custom bike show, kid zone and stunt show (among the many other attractions), and don’t forget to come see us at the MMSC booth!
