This past weekend was the 6th annual Victory Moto Show in our very own hometown of Savannah, Georgia. Since 2017, founder Anna Heritage Close and her team of “Moto Babes” have assembled each year to unite motorcycles and the people who love them into an event that not only highlights custom and vintage bikes, but benefits a veteran non-profit.
The venue each year is Service Brewing, a veteran-owned Savannah brewery with a deep and long-standing commitment to giving back to veterans and the local community. For 2022, Victory Moto Show’s highlighted non-profit was the Warrior Music Foundation, which provides free music lessons and music therapy to active-duty military, veterans, and their families.
The 2022 show proved one of the best ever, showcasing a wide range of custom and vintage motorcycles. Fortunately, our friend and fabulous photographer Drew Perlmutter, whose work has graced Sideburn and Blue Ridge Motorcycling, among many others, was on hand to capture the show for us.
Without further ado, here are our highlights from the show!
