Learn how you can get your bike in a magazine!

 You've seen the glossy pictures of the bikes that grace the pages of your favorite magazine. You know your bike is just as good – if not better – than many you've seen staring back at you from the pages. Your hard work should be displayed on the glossy pages right next to the best in the business. This year, during the First Annual Daytona Bike Week Twisted Tea Editor's Choice Bike Show, The Broken Spoke and the National Motorcycle Magazines can make it happen.


For the first time ever Bike Week attendees, scooter tramps, and old heads can make their way to the Broken Spoke Saloon on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at noon where 15 of the national motorcycle publications will be throwing a one day show. The first of its kind in the history or motorcycle magazines, each magazine editor will select a bike from the show to award as their "Editor's Choice" winner.  Each of the winning bikes will receive a trophy from that magazine, and a full feature in a future issue. That's right, man, go get the pan shined up, it's on!


Shape, style, and class won't matter – Twisted Tea is going all out to make sure everyone will have their chance to get their bike in the show. In addition to the Editor's Choice Awards there will be 12 classes awarded for the best Sportster, Big Twin, Bobber, Chopper, Pan, Shovel, Bagger, Café, Import, and Antique motorcycles of the day. Better yet there is NO ENTRY FEE!!! That's right, this round is on Twisted Tea and the Broken Spoke Saloon. There will be tons of prizes and give-a-ways all day long from Twisted, the Broken Spoke Saloon, all the magazines and many other companies from the motorcycle industry.


Spend the day at the Broken Spoke Saloon and meet your heroes from the pages of the national magazines or take this opportunity to argue with something they've said in the past. Don't miss this opportunity to swap stories with the folks that bring it alive each month.  Each magazine will have a booth at the Broken Spoke that day; all you have to do is show up. You'll have the chance to meet staff members and editors from American Bagger, American Iron Magazine, American Iron Motorcycle Bagger, Baggers,, Cycle Source, Easyriders, Hot Bike, IronWorks, RoadBike, Road Iron, Street Chopper, The Horse, Wrench, Thunder Press, Urban Bagger. There will be representatives on site from the motorcycle rights organization, Motorcycle Riders Foundation, as well, so bring along your MC Rights issues for a good chance to talk to those who know the answers.


Registration begins at high noon, what more fitting a time for the Broken Spoke than shoot out hours, right? Awards will be announced by 6:00 p.m. and from there the party will be on at the Daytona Broken Spoke. Big Engine will be performing, and for the first time ever, the big guns from the custom bike magazines of the world will be all together for a show of ultimate magnitude. Get your bikes ready and grab your gear – you won't want to miss it!
