Hi fellow V-Strom friends!

Let me translate a bit of the info presented above.

First of all, "La Brocante" is a friendly motorcycle gathering occuring in Henryville Quebec close to the US border and held over 2 days.

We have had people from Vermont and from Ontario last year and let me reassure you that we speak english . Last year we had over 700 visitors over the 2 days.

This event is 100% free except for the special supper buffet and music show on saturday night (food is incredible bbq by the way). You can camp for free on saturday.

It is open to all motorcycle types and styles and there is a VIP parking just for our V-Stroms!

This year is the 6th edition and it has been growing very fast since the 1st.

At "La Brocante" you can rent a table in the flea market for a cheap price to sell your motorcycle related goods. You can tour the flea market to track down good deals from fellow motorcyclist or we have multiple vendors on location, free guided motorcycle ride with multiple dealerships.

BBQ made with meat raised on location (owner is a farmer).
Helicopter tours, trial demo, travel ride reports by seasoned travellers etc.

It is really worth the miles to come visit and camp on saturday.

Feel free to inquire for any clarifications.

Hi all,
Onip, I guess you didn't check, but I have already posted the event and it's translation under the title of Henryville Flea Market gathering and show.
Please use that thread for any further information and PM me if you need local info.
Thanks,
DannyC.

Hi jfman,

Yes, there are usually some Suzuki bikes like the DRZ400. There was also the Stelvios one year, as well as those slow riding acrobatic type bikes that climb over everything and Thierry had set up a nice trail/obstacle course for those that wanted to try it.
Not sure what will be availabe yet.
BUT if you want to ride a trial bike, I suggest you get there early in the morning and sign up as it is first come first serve and the waiting can be long.

DannyC.
