There’s Nothing Like Being a Vendor at a Motorcycle Show!
By K. Peddlar Bridges
Aka The Roadpoet!

There’s nothing like being a Vendor
At a Motorcycle show!

The Riding in and the Heading out
The set up and the breakdown

The clatter and the chatter
As the day begins

The clatter and the chatter
as the day ends

Tables displaying
Your product
Your pride

Tables displaying
your lifestyle
your ride

Motorcycles being shown
Sitting between display stands

The clamor of the crowd
Mixed with the music
Of Rock and Roll bands!

There’s nothing like being a Vendor
At a Motorcycle show!

Folks dressed
in work boots
and jeans

Folks dressed to the nines

Folks you never met before


Folks you’ve known for years

Looking for the right vest
Looking for the right leather
Looking for the right gear!

Some folks talking
about the rides
they took last season

others are talking
where they’re
this year!

Or maybe
Just a run down the road!

And you look to your left
You look to your right
You look to the vendor
Straight across the aisle

And as you all watch
the patrons
Drift by

You all know why …

There’s nothing like being a Vendor
At a Motorcycle show!
