Springfield Motorcycle Show, Springfield, MA (January 17th and 18th)

It may be bitterly cold out there, but it is never too early to start thinking about motorcycle riding season. The Springfield Motorcycle show is being held at the Big E in West Springfield this Saturday and Sunday January 17th and 18th. There will be lots of bikes to look at (and even buy) from manufacturers and custom builders. There will be contests like best biker beard and tattoo. If you come away with a new motorcycle, make sure to contact your agent to discuss motorcycle insurance coverage now, even if you are not going to be riding right now, that motorcycle needs the proper coverage while in storage.
