As a longtime powersports dealer myself, I see the tremendous value AIMExpo brings to dealers, and I’m excited to get there and see what’s new in our industry for the coming season. AIMExpo has accomplished a lot in just a couple of years, and it’s all very exciting, for me personally and for the industry. Heck, I’d be there even if they hadn’t chosen me to be the AIMExpo Champion!”“Malcolm is an ideal choice for AIMExpo Champion,” said Larry Little, VP and General Manager of AIMExpo. “What he’s done in the racing and business worlds is simply unparalleled. Through his many amazing off-road exploits and appearance in Bruce Brown’s iconic documentary ‘On Any Sunday,’ Malcolm turned many of us into motorcyclists, and all of us – fans and industry folks, alike – are appreciative of everything he’s done for motorcycling.
