    Dear IMS Fans,

    We have some news to share today with our IMS Family. After 40 years of producing The International Motorcycle Shows and IMS Outdoors, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the IMS Tour in 2022.

    The powersports industry is at a crossroads with where and how brands promote their products amidst the continued manufacturing and sourcing delays associated with the pandemic. These current hurdles that our brand partners are facing would have made it difficult for us to produce an IMS that would meet your, and our, expectations. Therefore, we will not be moving forward with the planned 2022 events, including the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show.

    Any tickets purchased or Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show registrations paid for 2022 events will be refunded to the credit card used for purchase within 7 business days. If you have not received your refund within 7 business days, please contact [email protected].

    We greatly appreciate your attendance and loyalty over the years and will miss sharing your love for motorcycling with you.

    The shows were past their prime long ago.

    Agreed, the last two that I went to were not worth the time, and those were several years ago.

    The Cleveland one is usually last weekend in January, and I don't remember seeing anything about it this year.

    Cleveland show was always great for gear shopping, especially helmets. Hopefully it's back next time. They did a few things that brought in the lifestyle/poser crowd that seemed to be working, and it was a good time having a laugh at the spectacle.
