So I went this morning. My favorite part of the whole show was all the HD riders wearing all their HD gear, driving their HD cars... POSERS. My Daytona included, there were maybe 15 bikes in the parking lot. 3 harleys tops.
Anyways it was much smaller than I had hoped it would be and it was definitely geared for the HD enthusiast. A few local vendors had their bikes on display and I had my wife sit on all of them. I didn't tell her much about any of the bikes she sat on until after and she liked the new Street Triple the best.

I went to this show yrs ago when the only venue was the Shriner's Aud. The vendors were the best part, as far as a motorcycle show, not very good. But, something to do in the winter. Bought my Oxford disc lock at the show.

That must have been when you had real winters in the North East. I was all set and had my bike prepped for winter as it is my first. On Thursday I decided that it was mid January and if it wasn't cold yet it wasn't going to get cold. Pulled my bike out of hiding and I'll be riding until the next two week winter.

Yeah I'm from Southern California and West Texas. It was just as cold in El Paso Last year. Maybe a bit more snow up here this year than EP but not by much.

Kev Marv productions have been a bust for as long as I can remember. The only reason they get any people at all is because it's the middle of winter and we all just need to see some bikes. I find this forum more entertaining than one of their shows.

It seemed like I was done with the whole after 20 minutes. I of course made it last 2 hours to please the wife. I used to go a show years back in Long Beach, CA that took FOREVER to conquer. It was Awesome.

Wow. I looks like that up in Nashua at my Father in Laws house. I just went up there to play some hockey and watch the Pats game. It's like a whole other world though once you cross the border. no snow----NH/SNOW
