It’s motorcycle show season here in Western Canada, which means the Calgary Motorcycle Show rolled into Stampede Park on January 5 to 7, 2018. For three days, BMO Centre was abuzz with riders of all ages, checking out the latest street and dirt bikes, plus riding gear, apparel and safety products. The industry’s top ATV and UTV manufacturers also had their four-wheel lineups on display.

Our magazine’s motorcycle technician, Phil Budiselich, along with RidersWest correspondents Eddy Bell and Spencer Shellborn, were in attendance, bringing back with them the following photo highlights:
