Elyse was extremely honored and excited to be invited to display Blackbriar, her carbon fiber race bike, at the 2018 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, TX. The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show is an awesome showcase of unique bikes from across the globe which have been curated and put on display like the works of art that they are. This year the show attracted over 30,000 people to come check out the 140 beautiful, custom bikes on display. The vision of the team who puts the show on is to inspire others to create something awesome. Elyse had a great time checking out all the other bikes on display that weekend and seeing lots of moto pals at the event. If you haven’t been to the show yet, start making your plans to go in 2019!

During spring break most people head to the beach but racers come to Houston for TX2K allowing Elyse to kick off the 2018 race season at her home track. As usual, there was a great turnout because everyone was ready to be back at the track after winter. Elyse had a great time hanging out at the Eat Sleep Race pop-up shop on Saturday with her Blackbriar bike on display and signing posters. On Sunday, Elyse entered in the race and ran a new best time on that bike and ended up winning 2nd place in the motorcycle class! TX2K18 was a blast and a great start to McKinnon Motorsports’ 2018 race season.

We got to hang out at the Dallas IMS this weekend and catch up with a bunch of our motorcycle friends at the show. Elyse loves seeing her buddies at the BMW booth and chatting with Nate Kern about the S 1000 RR. She also enjoyed seeing Sofi Tsingos and Krystal Hess and checking out the bikes they entered in the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. There were some awesome custom bikes in the show and also lots of bikes to check out at the manufacturer booths. The Metal Mulisha Fitz Army high-flying freestyle motocross show was awesome as well. The highlight of the show was getting to spend some time with the BMW HP4 Race in all of its carbon fiber glory!

We hung out at Team Mancuso Powersports Southwest for their BMW Demo Day & Holiday Party. The dragbike was on display all day and Elyse got to talk to a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts who were passing through for the demo rides and hanging out for the party. There was a food truck on site, but the highlight of the day was cranking the race bike on the show room floor; it definitely drew a crowd! Looking forward to the next event!
