A Day at the 2012 Indianapolis Dealer Expo – Part I

This was an interesting year for the 2012 Dealer Expo.  While the OffRoadHub.com team is naturally drawn to the off-road / dirt section of the show we couldn’t pass up the chance to look at all of the custom motorcycle creations.  This year the promoters Advanstar Communications introduced the American V-Twin Dealer Show.  This marked the first premium trade show for the V-Twin Motorcycle Industry.

We were saddened that the off-road and dirt sections were smaller this year when compared to the past, but we still had a great time and met some really cool people with the industry.

We would have to say that GoPro had the best display this year.  There were over 10 flat screen televisions playing random  insane footage.
