Goodtimes RV Show Promotes Electric Motorcycle in 2012

Posted by Cristina Escarilla on 12/29/2011 to Stories
PLEASANTON, CA, Dec 29, 2011 -- With the demand for RVs growing and signs that the economy is improving, organizers of Northern California's largest indoor RV show have decided to create a new kind of buzz around their event. GoodTimes Promotions is adding electric motorcycles created by Zero Motorcycles to its winter RV show for the first time.

The 24th Annual Manufacturers RV and Sports Show, sponsored by Jackson Rancheria Casino & Hotel, will feature four cutting-edge Zero Motorcycles models in addition to the RVs and accessories it traditionally offers during its Jan. 6-16 show at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton.

"The attendance and sales at our RV shows over the past years has been consistently growing, and we wanted to branch out and offer something we believe RV enthusiasts will love," said Mike Nohr, president of GoodTimes Promotions. "Zero Motorcycles are amazing electric motorcycles that we're sure will be a hit at the show."

The recession drove the RV industry into a ditch, but signs are pointing to the end of the rough road. Total wholesale shipments for the year are up 4 percent over October 2010, according to RV industry analyst Dr. Richard Curtin.

"The economy isn't out of the woods yet, but when it comes to inexpensive vacation options, RVing leads the pack," said show manager Shawn Nohr.

Those who attend the January show will be able to test ride or see a demo of one of Zero's bikes, as well as peruse hundreds of RVs and accessories -- new and used -- and negotiate directly with dealers, all in one convenient location.

Cost: Adults $12, seniors (65+) $10, children 16 and under free. Special "Senior Wednesday 2 for 1." Held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds: 4501 Pleasanton Ave., Pleasanton, Jan 6-16, 2012; Mon - Fri 11am - 7pm, Sat 10am - 7pm; Sun and Monday MLK Day 10am to 6pm.
