I expect to be there some time on Saturday with a couple of friends. We tend to try for late afternoon as the crowd thins out.

i stopped going to these years ago. too much junky crap and I like to avoid the 1% tough guy wannabes.

I can get better deals online anyway, usually with a lot less tax.

I'm likely to go Saturday morning as it opens. Trying to buy tickets online for me is a bust. They offer Adult tickets ONLY at $20. Youth admission is $5, but some tech clown forgot to put it on the website. I'll be standing in line twice now. Once for tickets, and then back in line to get in....

Maybe we need our own colours; it would have to be something practical, fun and reliable... ...ahhh, sounds like to much time spent thinking which could be used riding and farkling.

Going on Friday after 5:30. Les from DSP is bring some parts I ordered for pick up there. Also bringing a friend who is going to buy his first Strom shortly. He is hoping to find some good deals on some riding gear he needs to replace. Hoping Friday evening is quieter than the Saturday crowd I normally have to push through.

I just got back and while i don't want to rain on anybody's parade, I was disappointed.

I have seen the show deteriorate into a flea market over the last few years.
I've got a bike, although there were mostly cruisers on display. I've got a suit and helmet. There didn't seem to be much else.

BTW are the prices at Dual Sport going up and the cheaper products disappearing?

I don't need some off-shore tissue-thin chaps, patches that tell the world that the ***** fell off or cheap sunglasses.

It was a relief to see a lot of normal people and a lot of nice vintage bikes.

Just me and I know a lot of people love it but I wish the December show and this one would get back together.
