Originally, the show was held in Gateway, Colorado. It then moved to Palisade, Colorado for a number of years. Then, three years ago, it moved to Downtown Montrose. Now, for a second time, the Unknown Motorcycle Show is coming to Cerise Park in Montrose. The event is on Saturday, June 11, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You'll enjoy tons of vintage bikes, incredible artwork, and live music.

Bitter Sweet Year

This is an awesome event, hence the reason why it has been running for 15 years. In 2021, I entered my late mother's Honda Twinstar 200 in the show. It was in showroom condition, but after having sat under a blanket for almost 40 years, needed work. I decided to show it one more time, and then let it go to an interested buyer.

Get a load of this. About four months after I sold it, the collector who purchased it called me up. He got the bike up and running again, just like he said he would. The purpose behind the call? He called to let me know I could have it back. Seriously, he gave the motorcycle back to me. Check it out below - the burgundy Honda TwinStar 200.
