Death Row Motorcycles

The DRM ride began in 2003 and since then they have enjoyed smooth curves and endured bumpy roads along the way. What has always remained important is listening to customers. Death Row Motorcycles builds amazing bikes that are meant to ride. Check out some of their custom creations at the Blue Ridge Bike Fest.

The Blue Ridge Bike Fest was first thought of in 2008 and planning began then for the first annual event in April of 2009. More than 8,000 bikers from all over the state of Virginia and regionally from West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky came for that event and it's been growing ever since. In 2015 we're celebrating our 7th anniversary. The Blue Ridge Bike Fest has taken place at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, VA since its inception.
