Donation + Discount ticket link:

"Listen up, times have been tough - but I know motorcycle riders are tougher," barks The Gunny. "It's a simple deal - you bring a toy donation and drop it in the saddlebags at the Victory display, and me and the team from Victory have a little gift for you. I don't care what kind of bike you ride in on - but I'm ordering you to bust out that toy, get it to the show and bury the Victory crew in donations. And these saddlebags are huge - so don't you dare wuss out with some junky little toy out of a cereal box! "

As a bonus, the first 200 people to donate a toy in the Victory display get additional gift from the show! Gunny will station himself at various times during the day at the Victory Display on December 9 and 10 to greet fans, pose for pictures and hand out a special gift for those taking part in The Gunny's Toys for Tots Saddlebag Challenge.

Friday afternoon also features the worldwide reveal of an exciting new Victory model, plus master builders, Brian and Laura Klock of KlockWerks Kustoms will debut a customized version of the new bike on Saturday! The Victory Motorcycles display now features the new Victory Map Room presented by RoadRUNNER Magazine with editors from the publication offering maps and advice for those ready to see what's on the other side of the horizon.

The Progressive International Motorcycle Show at the Long Beach Convention Center will also feature an opportunity to demo ride the latest Victory models.
