Update 10/15/16: Hero Days are back at the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo). In appreciation for all of the sacrifices made by brave U.S. service personnel, retired and active military members are invited to attend AIMExpo for FREE! They simply need to present a valid form of military I.D. to the information counter located near the show floor entrance on Saturday, October 15 or Sunday, October 16.
It’s that time again! AIMExpo is coming to the Orange County Convention Center October 13 – 16, 2016. We took the family last year, and the kids are still talking about it. The racers that were in attendance were so great with the kids and took the time to talk with each of them, as well as sign some posters. So many great motorcycle companies and unique motorcycles line the floors and I love that it’s a hands-on expo. You can touch and sit on the motorcycles, ask questions, and get more information that you can fathom.

With nearly 500 exhibitors, including 17 manufacturers, set to provide global and domestic debuts of a wide array of new products and showcase their latest innovations, enthusiasts will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of motorcycling inside the North Hall. Additionally, the new exhibitor floor location puts the heart of AIMExpo mere steps away from the event’s most unique trademark – AIMExpo Outdoors! – where consumers can swing a leg over a bike, saddle an ATV, or buckle into a side-by-side to get a hands on perspective of the marketplace’s newest models.
In addition to the many new motorcycles, ATV’s and UTV’s, the full complement of the latest aftermarket products – gear and accessories – will be on display, many of which will also be available for purchase at the show. Moreover, a full slate of educational and informative seminars, along with the appearance of special celebrity guests, will offer additional opportunities for enthusiasts to enrich and enjoy their AIMExpo experience.
Now more than ever AIMExpo provides an unparalleled opportunity to literally See It, Touch It, and Ride It, all in one place, at one time!
Attendees can also immerse themselves in a brand new showcase for 2016 known as “Custom Culture at AIMExpo.” Key components are the Championship of the Americas bike builders’ competition, the Standard Motorcycle Co. Showcase, millennial artisans, bike builders, and more. There will also be a chance to meet Custom Culture ambassador Leticia Cline.
Consumers can also meet second generation road-racing legend Kenny Roberts Jr. The former world champion has been given the coveted distinction of “AIMExpo Champion” for the 2016 event.
Roberts Jr. is the son of Hall of Fame racer and motorcycle racing icon Kenny Roberts, who served as the inaugural AIMExpo Champion for the first ever event in 2013. Together they share the distinction of being the only father-son duo to ever win the FIM 500cc World Grand Prix Championship, now known as MotoGP, and are now the first father and son to serve the role of AIMExpo Champion.
