The Ray Price Capital City Bikefest and Motorsports Expo is a free three day annual event that takes place in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, the Raleigh Convention Center and the Ray Price Harley-Davidson and Triumph Dealership. Now in its 13th year, the event is family friendly and draws visitors from all over the country.

           This event includes one of the largest custom bike shows on the East Coast with $15,000 in cash and prizes. Also taking place during the weekend were almost constant musical acts, numerous thrill spectacles, a tattoo expo, vendors, and even a pin-up contest.

One of the events that I enjoyed most besides the bike show was the Cole Freeman Stunt Show. The dude can handle a bagger like a dirt bike. He could spin that bagger wide open 180-degrees and return back and repeat. Scared the daylights out of me. No one should be able to ride like he does ─ it’s embarrassing.

          Thanks to everyone who has a hand in putting on one of my favorite events of the year. Special thanks to Delbert Soucier Jr. who treats me like a VIP every year and with the help of his son work their tails off arranging such a multifaceted event at the Convention Center.
