Consumers will have the opportunity to see the Bates Footwear PowerSports Line in person throughout the summer and fall as the Tucker Rocky/Biker’s Choice rig makes its way around the United States. The full Bates PowerSports line will be on display and available for purchase at each of the following events:


Bates Footwear will be making its debut appearance at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this August. Again partnering with Tucker Rocky/Biker’s Choice, Bates will be located in the J&P Cycles lot in downtown Sturgis, South Dakota. Sturgis Rally-goers will have the opportunity to speak first hand to Bates representatives about the Adrenaline, Beltline, Marauder and Taser models, as well as try on and purchase the boots.

“We are thrilled that our partnership with Tucker Rocky/Biker’s Choice will include more opportunities to get face to face with motorcyclists around the country,” said Bates Footwear Marketing Manager, Julie McCauley. “Footwear is very personal, and it’s important for people to be able to touch, feel and try on pairs of boots to make sure they get a proper fit. We look forward to spreading the word about the Bates PowerSports Line at these events.”

Bates Footwear will also make a return visit to Orlando, Florida for AIMExo 2016. Bates made a strong impression at AIMExpo 2015 with a head-turning booth design that earned the company an official AIMExpo Booth Award. This year, Bates will be officially launching its 2017 motorcycle footwear to powersports dealers, media and consumers at the expo.


Bates will return to the 2016 AIMExpo this October.
