It was a biker's dream at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks today - hundreds of motorcycles to see at the Red River Valley Motorcyclists Show.

There were bikes of all ages and styles.

"Everybody should ride a Harley!" said Bike Owner Edward Charron.

Charron was just one of the motorcycle owners at the Red River Valley Motorcyclists show today to show off a much-loved ride. They were there showing everything from choppers to antiques to classic motorcycles.

"She's a black pearl. She's just an awesome ride," said Charron.

Nearly 3,000 people came to last year's show, and organizers are hoping that even more people will come this year. There are also vendors selling everything from food to leather goods.

"I just took a walk outside and I bet you there's probably a couple hundred bikes out there out in front of the building. Great day, great turnout. It's nice outside, it's nice in here," said Red River Valley Motorcyclists President Timothy Gowan.

Gowan says there are a lot of unique bikes at the show for people to see. There's a 1942 Army motorcycle. There's a police bike, and, of course, the oldest bike at the show. The owner of the Harley Davidson JD motorcycle bought the bike for $1,000.

"That came from down by the Horace area, came all the way down for the show," said Gowan.

All the proceeds from the show go to support local charities.

The Motorcyclists Show continues tomorrow at the Alerus Center from 10 to 4.
