What? We Said We’re Hosting the Reno Bagger Sound Off!

We’re organizing the first-ever Bagger Sound Off and Bike Competition at one of our favorite annual events, Reno Street Vibrations in Nevada. Along with Kicker Audio and Ground Pounder Magazine, Kuryakyn will be hosting a decibel-busting contest that will pit motorcycle sound systems against each other in a cacophony of cool sounds.

The Sound Off will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Victorian Square in adjacent Sparks, Nev. It’s free to enter and open to anybody’s who thinks their tricked out custom bagger or trike is better than anybody else’s. And if they can prove it, they’ll walk away with more than $1,000 in prizes in any of the three main categories, and prizes worth more than $250 in any of the four subcategories.

And you don’t have to limit yourself to one category. If you can stand the pressure of having our panel of judges from Kuryakyn, Kicker and Ground Pounder carefully critique your ride at close quarters, then go ahead and enter a bunch of categories.

What are we looking for?

  • Loudest Sound System: This category will be judged solely on the decibel level of the sound system.
  • Best Quality Sound: Contestants will be asked to play music of their choice to determine the best overall quality of sound.
  • Best Overall Bagger: This category will be judged by our panel of three judges, and will take into account the overall look of the bike. Judged on custom paint, wheels, chopped, dropped or as far away as possible from stock.


  • Best Theme: Anything goes —This category will be judged by our panel of three judges to find the most unique theme bike around.
  • Most Speakers: The bike with the most speakers wins. Should there be a tie, we’ll be measuring the overall speaker surface area to find a winner.
  • Best Paint Job: Judged by our panel of three judges to determine the best custom paint job.
  • People’s Choice: This is a unique category where spectators decide the winner by placing their votes at the event.
