Convention Center - 500 S Salisbury St, Raleigh, NC
Baddest Bagger is the original custom Bagger competition for builders to show off their hard work and creativity.
Eight years ago, there were zero Bagger-specific bike shows. Baggers were forced to compete against Bobbers, Choppers, Rigids and Softails, and they rarely won an award. That all changed with a phone call between Paul Yaffe of Bagger Nation and Dave Withrow, Publisher of American Bagger and Urban Bagger magazines.
That phone call led to the first Baddest Bagger in Sturgis and now there are 16 Baddest Bagger shows per year! Competitions are held throughout the year, all across the United States. Anybody and everybody is encouraged to enter!
There are four classes to compete in:
The entrants vote on the four class winners from 1st place to 3rd place and they vote on the Baddest Bagger. The editors of American Bagger and Urban Bagger magazines also pick winners for Editor's Choice for each publication.
For the first time at Capital City Bikefest, we're not just having one Bike Show, we're hosting four! In addition to the regular Bike Show you have the opportunity to enter your bike in the Baddest Bagger contest, the Softail Showdown or the Team Money Cycles' Sound Off Series Grudge Match! That's even more opportunities to bring home a trophy!
