Going to the Supershow, Toronto Jan 4-6?

Who will be attending?
This is by far the best show in the Toronto area imo with many vendors as well as representation from all the bike manufacturers. At the International Center so easy access with free parking. I will be there Friday morning. I know the Dualsport people will be there from Stoney Creek and they are bringing big ear who will be providing on the spot moulded plugs. The Canadian Frog Togg distributor will be attending as well.

I am thinking of going Ken, but I can only go Friday morning (that is if I actually go) when it opens at 10pm... I have to be back in Kitchener by 2pm for work... I work the rest of the weekend so that's out... I haven't decided quite yet, though... When were you thinking of going?

A bunch of us always go to the show at 5pm Saturday. We enter at 5pm because most people are leaving by then. That way we don't have to deal with crowds or line ups.
It is a great way to catch up with, hang out with friends, and bs about bikes for a night.

Man, I'm just a musician, you know? People have been doing that to me since the Sixties - they ask questions like they would ask a medical doctor or a psychiatrist or a professor or a politician. Why? Why are you asking me these things? Bob Dylan

Just pre-purchased some tickets to ensure that I go, -and to save a few shekels.
Can't say when I'll be there yet, but will be keeping an eye out for familiar faces while trying on a few helmets.
