Baddest Bagger in Daytona

What is Baddest bagger?

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!
