I will probably be attending. Not sure which day though, it all depends on schedule, family, etc etc.

Never went last year, I think every other year is about right and there seems to be a ton of new bikes which are begging to be drooled upon. I'm just the drooler for the job.


Looks like this might be a crappy riding year. Damn snow! :mad:

Attended the show today. Loads and loads o new bikes to ogle. Somewhat disappointed though in the aftermarket goods.

I flew here from Winnipeg in the hopes of deals/purchases of goodies. None to be had really, unless you want leather stuff.

No touring riding goodies, no GPS's, no tires, nuthing.

Some of the major parts distributors were in attendance, but no sales allowed.

I really like the new MotoGuzzi Norge and the Beemer GS.

O well, I shall return home with all my money intact.

Cheers!

I would agree the show was uninspiring. No F800GS, no BMW 450, the new enduro. The Honda Varadero was uninspiring, sooner have my Strom.

The only bike I drooled over was the KTM 690 Enduro. Very niiiiice.

Booths at these events are a minimum of 1500 just for about 10X10 feet. Very pricey.

We stopped in at Blackfoot after the show, the sales guy was surprized the F800GS wasnt there. He actually had to call over to the show to verify that it was indeed missing in action.

I really liked the Guzzi Norge, fits me like a glove.

Cheers!
