BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Star, Triumph, Victory, Yamaha and more have all utilized the International Motorcycle Shows® to unveil new motorcycles and concept vehicles to the world. Currently, Long Beach, New York and Chicago are set to continue the media extravaganza tradition which has attracted over 500 members of the media annually.
I was one of them and attended the International Motorcycle Show this past weekend to check out all the bikes, accessories and show specials. Javitts was a zoo because there were 2 other shows on at the same time, a fashion one and a travel one on top of the hugely successful and busy BIKE show.
It was so packed with people that we were so hot and crowded. There were huge crowds of enthusiasts, bike ‘squads’ and lots of Ruff Ryders and families too. The show hits 13 cities nationwide, all being major markets for motorcycle enthusiasts, including: Atlanta, Dallas, San Mateo, Long Beach, Seattle, Novi, Washington DC, New York, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Chicago and Charlotte.
The motorcycles were spectacular and lil boys and grown ups were really going ga-ga over all the ones they could sit on!
Each stop showcases the latest street bikes, dirt bikes, cruisers, ATVs, personal watercraft and all the apparel to complete your motorcycle experience. Tai tried a few of the new Ducati, Triumph and Harleys.
I don’t know how to ride but felt pretty badass on this Ducati!

Last month, I went to the New York Ducati store reopening and was blown away by all the hot bikes and enthusiasts. Funny I noticed how everyone was taking pics with the iPhone 4S. What a brilliant collabo! The best Mac accessory company iSkin and Ducati did a special collection just in time for Christmas.
The Ducati Collection by iSkin has been borne from these two great brands to produce stylish, protective carriers and holders for high-tech devices, that will fulfill the desires of performance-inspired technoistas the world over. The distinctive looks and superior quality of the product line, which feature the highest quality, premium fabrics like Italian nylon, and a Red/Black/White color scheme, will ignite the passion of envious onlookers.
“Ducati has a rich history of performance and quality,” says Andrew Ackloo, iSkin President and CEO. “This partnership allows us to provide the style-conscious tech consumer the chance to participate in that history in a very unique way.”
“We are delighted to be teaming-up with iSkin, a company which clearly champions the same product passion as Ducati,” said Lucio Attina, Director of Ducati Apparel & Brand Development. “Their innovative design and style combined with high performance functionality, mirror the fundamental features of our motorcycles and we now look forward to the association as we prepare for 2012.”
The collection is cut to universally fit the world’s most loved devices. Some key pieces include the Sling, an innovative body messenger bag for iPad, iPad 2, or similar-sized tablets and netbooks. The Jimmy, with spacious compartments to hold your laptops, tablets, other devices and much more. Summit puts an urban flair to iPad and iPad 2 (or similar-sized tablets and netbooks) sleeves, and delicately carries your device in strikingly lightweight, padded Italian nylon, reminiscent of current winter trends. The Lil Keeper is its smaller kin and adds a much needed fashion punch to point-and-shoot camera and iPhone 4/4S pouches out there. A brand new line of sleek, ultra-thin cases will also be available soon for the latest iPhone and BlackBerry® models.
The complete Ducati Collection by iSkin is available immediately at iSkin.com/Ducati and a selection of the collection will be available at shop.ducati.com. It will be rolled out to select premium outlets in the coming months.

Sooooo the Ducati store reopened on 6th Ave and Spring street after taking a hiatus all summer. With a hot invite from Ducati, we just had to go see check out the Ducati New York Fashion Night and Chill Party.
It was an evening of bikes, babes and boys. I am so new to the motorcycle world but I am definitely not new to the event circuit!
Despite the cool weather, the inside was packed and the outside was lined with bikes. AND it was Red Bull sponsored, with sexy Ducati go-go dancers, yummy appetizers and picture perfect photography by PopUpPix.
Look at me being all nervous in front of the Diavel
Remember how scared I was earlier this summer?
Now see how a pro does it!
So much happier on a Ducati. Hang tight!
The Ducati store is now REopened and has perfect Christmas presents for the motorcycle enthusiast in your life.
