You can love speed and metal and not have to be into automobiles — and you have a way to explore it this weekend.

The Progressive International Motorcycle Show rolls into the Dallas Convention Center this weekend, as part of a 13-city tour that features every imagineable form of two-wheelers: dirt bikes, sportsbikes, cruisers, scooters, ATVs and more. Activities include a stunt riding showcase, the chance to complete an actual pit stop and a custom motorbike competition that includes eye-popping chrome and paint jobs.
