Running in conjunction with this years GEICO Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour is the Sailor Jerry Presents Hot Bike Invitational Bike Build-off featuring the world’s best bike builders. For the first time ever, Hot Bike has invited the world's top bike builders to compete in a bike build-off that challenges every aspect of a custom-bike build. Not content to let builders build unridebale two-wheeled sculptures and call them motorcycles, Hot Bike magazine’s Jeff G. Holt came up with the concept of a bike show where the builders actually have to ride their creations over a series of days to be considered into the judging competition.
“Over the past decade or so we have really became bored of the slapped-together and wacky style of show bikes that were never intended to even be ridden and think our fans, readers, and riders have as well,” Holt explains. “That’s why we decided to invite the world’s best bike builders to put their metal where their mouth is and build a badass bike they can and will actually ride.” The Hot Bike Invitational Bike Build-Off will be held in conjunction with the Hot Bike Tour, and the bikes will be ridden daily and judged upon by you—the event attendees—via ballot boxes at every event stop. There will be a daily winner per stop as well as a Grand Champion who wins the title with the most total votes over the five days of the tour. Come on out and rub elbows, ride with, and vote on your favorite bike builder.
