MINNEAPOLIS - If you prefer two wheels over four, the Minneapolis Convention Center has you covered this weekend.

The Progressive International Motorcycle Show kicks off Friday and runs through Sunday.

The show features some of the newest technology in the industry, including the 2013 line of electric bikes from Zero Motorycycles.

In addition, the XDL Street Jam stunt team will strut its stuff. The nationally touring team features some familiar faces. Aaron Colton, originally from Shakopee and Aaron Twite, originally from Cloquet, are on the team. "I know there's going to be a lot of people showing up, a lot of fans I haven't seen in a long time. I'm really excited to be local," Colton says, who's sponsored by Red Bull.

For Twite, it will be the first time performing in front of his family. "I've been able to go all around the world and see and meet people that I would have never been able to do had I continued down a career path. Every day is an adventure and every year gets better and better," he says.

Chris Tice, also with XDL Street Jam, is from St. Cloud.

All three guys spent the morning with KARE 11's Bryan Piatt and gave us a sneak peak of the show on KARE 11 Sunrise.
