International Motorcycle Shows announces 2010-2011 tour dates

Christmas comes a little early for enthusiasts this year when the International Motorcycle Shows kicks off its 2010-2011 season in November.

The 12-city motorcycle show tour starts Nov. 12-14 at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, winding through 11 states and three time zones before concluding at a four-day inside show during Daytona Bike Week next March.

Enthusiasts can get their holiday shopping done early at the Dallas, San Mateo, Seattle and Long Beach shows, all of which will happen before Christmas. And Midwesterners, take note: Start planning now to figure out how to get your “significant others” to spend the weekend before Valentine’s Day at the big Chicago International Motorcycle Show in suburban Rosemont. (Hopefully, they’re enthusiasts, too.)
