Warm, Dry Weather Looks Favorably on Well-attended SMA Bike Show
Unseasonably warm temperatures greeted those attending the 2019 SMA Motorcycle Show held Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Ag Building on the Missouri State Fairgrounds.
Sedalia Motorcycle Association Treasurer Rick Yeager said he was very pleased with the turnout.
“It's just been amazingly wonderful. The weather has cooperated with us so much. This is the second largest crowd of motorcycles we've had at this show. The door attendance is record breaking,” Yeager noted, adding that it is designed to be a winter bike show.
“We like to have it in winter, because people are looking for something to do,” Yeager pointed out. “Bike shows in the summer are just another bike show, but this has been spectacular.”
The turn out of bikes and attendees was the best ever, Yeager said on Monday. "We had 77 paid entries and a line of people at the door most of the day. Each bike was judged by three judges and there were 19 classes for the entries to chose from and a best of show award created by one of our own SMA members, Kaleb Zink.
Yeager added that he regularly has out-of-state exhibitors from Illinois, Arkansas, Iowa and Kansas. And “we sell out of vendor space long before the show gets here,” Yeager said.
One exhibitor was Nappy Dreads Customz, featuring a work in progress -- a larger-than-life metal sculpture created by Don Luper and Lisa Robertson. The sculpture, located next to the stage, generated a lot of looks and interest.
Clay Clear and Jesse Niccum provided musical entertainment in the afternoon on stage, while the Back River Band presented a live concert at 6 p.m. until the awards were announced.
Judging in 19 classes took place earlier in the day, and the awards (from Stone Laser Imaging) were handed out at 8 p.m. Saturday.
