I went to my first Motorcycle Swap Meet & Bike Show in Howard County, Maryland today. Considering the size and participation I have seen at other motorcycle events; my expectations were high. However, I was a little disappointed with this particular show. The Facebook...

The Progressive International Motorcycle Show took place over the weekend in the Walter E Washington Convention Center, Washington DC. Every year the show seems to be getting smaller and the crowds even smaller. I would have liked to put a stall there to promote my boo...
