Jackson, Mississippi, Hosts Annual Motorcycle Expo

The Great Southern Motorcycle Expo in Jackson, Mississippi, was held over the weekend, and riders and motorcycle enthusiasts came from around the region to check out the custom bikes, riding showcases and motorcycle accessories. WLBT reports that along with a “Wall of Death” and the Budweiser Clydesdales, the event hosted a number of customized bikes that guests could check out up close.

The 13th annual event also hosted a Police Skills Competition for the boys in blue who patrol on two wheels, Fox40TV reports. There were more than 70 vendors displaying their wares at the expo, so riders were able to peruse the booths for the perfect motorcycle accessories and parts.

Bill Bissell, the event promoter, told WLBT this year’s gathering was the biggest and best they’ve had in their 13 years. The highlight of the weekend-long event was the customized bike display. Riders from across five states brought along their custom motorcycles to show off unique and intricate paint jobs as well as mechanical and aesthetic customizations.
