          Heading out of town on Friday, so I’ll be there right when they open the doors that day.

          Enjoy!

            We are trying for saturday. 🙂
            We hope to lessen the PMS. It will likely make it worse. 🙁

              I’ll probably be there with all three daughters, but 15 has finals the next week so may have to stay home to study (but I doubt it…likes her Dad time)

              I’ll be heading there for around noon on Saturday.

              See you there

              Later.

                I’ll be getting there early-mid afternoon, with my dad and the people we have converted to a life of bike riding. 😀

                We should meet up if we happen to all be there at the same time

                  I’m a little stunned…they all declined to go with me…oh well, I will be there probably earlier now. No waiting for a teen girl to “get ready”…

                  Message me for my number and we can text to meet for a coffee or something.

                  Later.

                      I wasn’t all that impressed…with the cost of parking, the cost of admission…a little pricey for me…can go to the bike shops anytime, it’s not like they have bikes there that you can’t go see at the local dealer…

                      Oh well…nice to sit on a few bikes and not have to go to different dealers, I guess?

                        I also say the show was not that impressive. less vendors, less items to look at, half the dealers didnt want to be there.

                        After that show, my wife happened to be in Vancouver. The last time I was at the Vancouver show ( abbotsford airport ) was about 2002 ish. So we made it a little vacation. Sunny, 100’s of people rode in on their bikes, hotel was $75.00 night. The show, the atmosphere of the people, vendors etc.

                        I would rather spend $500.00 and go there than spend $50.00 here.

                          More of a market in a mild climate…but I’m envious!

                          Did they have a better selection of bikes? New models being released?

                          The only bike that really impressed me was the new Suzuki Vstrom 1000…

                            They had more bikes, and a lot more vendors. But like you said, its the location. A few bikes caught my eye, my wife was able to “test” sit on a few bikes as a passenger. For her, it was bike as she was able to test all the dual sports out and compare them to her F650GS. Now she knows height, how they sit ( cruisers as well ) so for her it was a huge event.
