Together with over 125 major Motorcycle and related Product Manufacturers, Distributors and select Retail Venders involved in the streetbike market. Event hosts include the legendary Keith Ball, a.k.a.

"Motorcycle enthusiasts love our show because of its quality and excitement, all the top custom and race bikes, beautiful models, and the fact it has been the only outdoor bike event in Los Angeles county, now located on the ocean's edge at the beautiful Queen Mary Park." <BR><BR>The expanded 2-day Show not only gives fans more time to enjoy it, but it provides real value. When most admission prices at sporting events, race tracks and outdoor amusement parks cost $40 - $50 per day, our Bike Show's low one-day admission price is just $15 ($20 for both days) and includes free admission to the Queen Mary (a $15 admission to normal tourists). <BR><BR>With all the additional attractions that Long Beach has to offers including the ferry boat to Catalina Island with a day's activities there, the Aquarium, the downtown restaurants and clubs, plus what greater Los Angeles has to offer, the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show is a must do attraction for across-the-country visitors and it will continue to grow as a major motorcycle week destination like Laughlin, Daytona and Sturgis.<BR><BR>Spectators and Exhibitors can find out more about The LA Calendar Motorcycle Show, the Bike Contest and all the available weekend activities online at<BR>;
