Cruisin' to the 2016 Hot Bike Tour: Day One

Kicking things off in Asheville, NC!

Hot Bike Tour is here again and kicking off in Asheville, NC. This city is gorgeous and the mountains that surround it are absolutely incredible. Riders from all over poured into town this afternoon for the fourth annual Hot Bike Tour. The bikes from both Hot Bike and Baggers Mag's builders are diverse and absolutely stunning. Here are some of our favorite ride-in bikes from today.

John Shope won the Hot Bike people's choice award and Oscar Peralta from After Cycles took the Baggers award.

Stay tuned for more from the tour tomorrow!
