More than 1,000 local motorcycle enthusiasts made the short, but scenic, trip to South Beach Casino and Resort last Sunday for the casino’s annual Motorcycle Show & Shine. Hosted by the Winnipeg Harley Riders Association and the Antique Motorcycle Club of Manitoba, this event has quickly grown to become Manitoba’s largest motorcycle show.
More than $2,000 in cash prizes were awarded to class winners for American, Harley-Davidson, British, European, Japanese, custom, vintage and special interest motorcycles. Cash was also given away for the Chief’s Choice and People’s Choice awards.
The show was free to enter and participants received a T-shirt, barbecue lunch and a chance at a number of door prizes in appreciation for showing off their motorcycles.
Highlights included a bike burnout display, live entertainment from the band Camper Special and more than enough sunshine to make us all forget fall is just around the corner!
