The 2021 TRO CHAMPIONSHIP BIKE SHOW SERIES
As motorcyclists, bikers, or whatever you want to call yourselves – our bikes are often our pride and joy. In many cases, We spend hours after hours, and often dollars after dollars making them our own personal ride. With all that time and effort, why not bring them out and showcase what you’ve done? To that end, we present the Thunder Roads Ohio Bike Show Series.
The TRO Bike Show Series features local, regional, and nationally recognized shows that all builders and bike owners are encouraged to participate in. Vintage, metric, v-twin, customs, restored antiques, “resto-mods”, trikes, and radicals – they are all welcome to the show.
The vast majority of these shows are RIDE-IN shows, meaning that the bikes are expected to be ridden and a little bit of road dust is fine. We don’t split hairs over trailering in bikes, but we do require that all bikes must be functioning. They must start and be able to be safely ridden on the road.
Most of the shows include voting by event attendees and weighted judges scores. We use this approach to make certain we include the “people’s choice” as well as a professional eye – preventing it just being a popularity contest. For most shows we include a BEST OF SHOW AWARD – awarded to the top scoring bike in the show – and then a PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD – awarded to the top scoring bike, without factoring in Judge’s Scores. Some shows, though, are Judged Shows – with the guest votes simply going towards the People’s Choice Awards.
All Thunder Roads Shows feature trophies and placards to recognize the bikes and winners, with special prizes being added in some shows in consideration of the location and hosts. The Best of Show Bikes and TOP Class Winners from the Bike Show Series are then invited to take part in the Championship Shows.
NEW Vintage Classes!
In response to the overwhelming VINTAGE interest in vintage bikes and a wider range of classic bikes showing up at our shows - we will be adding VINTAGE RACING and TOURING classes as options for exhibitors taking part in the BIKE SHOW SERIES. As always, we will require at least 3 bikes in these classes to qualify for a BEST-IN-CLASS AWARD – otherwise the bikes will be pooled with other Vintage bikes. Our hope is that we can encourage more Exhibitors to bring out and show their bikes in these classes with us offering new, distinct classes.
