Engines Revving for Vegas Bikefest

Agents with clients who are motorcycle enthusiasts should take note of the upcoming Las Vegas BikeFest, where more than 30,000 bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts are expected to roll into Las Vegas to attend a national motorcycle and biker rally held October 1-4. The four-day motorcycle rally allows people to immerse themselves in biker culture as they meet some of the world's most skilled custom motorcycle builders, tour more than 250 booths in Vendor Village featuring motorcycles, parts, accessories and apparel, and view one-of-a-kind bike exhibitions, according to Harry Schwartz, president of Full Throttle Events.

"As was true with past years, Las Vegas BikeFest 2009 will deliver on its promise of being an action-packed weekend that keeps guests entertained with a variety of activities, including a daily concert series and biker build offs," says Schwartz. "We are excited to bring together some of the top names within the custom bike industry and can guarantee that people will be impressed with what they see at this year's show."

2009 Las Vegas BikeFest marks the sixth annual Artistry in Iron, Master Builders' Championship, an invitation-only, peer judged competition between approximately 20 of the industry's most innovative and progressive custom bike builders.

Event guests will have the opportunity to get in the action by entering their bikes in the Custom Bike Show, taking place at Cashman Center for the first time (and relocated from its longtime home at Fremont Street), on Saturday, October 3. This show will display some of the coolest bikes from around the country and award the winning participant in the Radical Class with a $3,000 cash prize, a customized trophy produced by Rampage Wheels and automatic qualification in the 2010 Artistry in Iron, Master Builders' Championship.

Additional show events will include a World's Strongest Biker contest, Harley-Davison demo rides, $100,000 Poker Run, Mr. and Miss Las Vegas BikeFest Competitions, Artistry in Iron autograph signing sessions, a Bikini Contest, as well as a performance by the legendary Molly Hatchet at the new official headquarter hotel, Sahara Hotel & Casino.
