The 3rd Annual South Texas Motorcycle Show

SAN ANTONIO--March 13, 2006--The 3rd Annual South Texas Motorcycle Show is scheduled for March 17 - 19, 2006, at the Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St.

With over 19,000 attendees at last year's show, the three-day event is quickly gaining popularity, fueled by the renewed interest in the motorcycle industry and culture through shows like the Discovery Channel's "American Chopper" and "World Biker Build-Off"

The 2006 show will feature special appearances from Discovery Channel's Randy Simpson of Milwaukee Iron on Friday and Saturday. TLC's Miami Ink's Artists' Chris Nunez and Ami James will appear on Saturday and Sunday.

"It's just incredible to see raw talent -- true art -- made from steel," says Quincy Barnes, show coordinator. "There are some amazing talents in Texas when it comes to building choppers."

Whether it's street, sport, cruiser, off-roader, antique or custom chopper, the Freeman Coliseum will be packed with names like Harley Davidson, Honda, Suzuki, Victory, Kawasaki and Ducati. Dealers, outfitters and accessory companies will be on-hand to show their latest in motorcycles and riding gear, including leather wear, do-rags, sunglasses and a variety of other accessories.

"You may have been to a rally, poker run or bike night, but this is the first show of its kind servicing the immediate San Antonio area," says Barnes. "This is a show for everyone, whether you're just getting into motorcycles or if you're a veteran."

Barnes added that The Texas Department of Public Safety will have a booth with materials on rider training and safety. Dealerships often run their own rider schools and several local stores will be represented, including Joe Harrison Motorsports and Alamo Cycleplex.

Also represented will be a number of local and regional ride clubs like Texas Motorcycle Riders Association, who will be signing up participants for charity rides and welcoming new members.

"The motorcycle community is extremely tight," Barnes says. "They're good people, friendly, courteous, the kind of people you want to share the road with."

Admission for the show is $15.00, children under 10 free. Free parking each day. For more information on the show, $5.00 off adult admission coupons, or for contest entry information, visit
