I ain't going to either one . I have seen this go down hill for several years now . Vendors are less and less every year . Manufactures pick and choose which events they go to because of cost. Not seeing any real good deals there anymore. I tried chicago for first time last year , it was ok . But nothing to get me excited about going anymore . Maybe I just need a break from the whole thing for a while . It's kinda like when I went to every car show and cycle swap meet for me . I get bored with same thing over and over again.
If they where closer I would problaly still go , but too much time on the road for what's there . Now this is coming from a guy who will ride 200 miles for ice cream ;)

I hear you there. If it was more than an hour drive for me, I probably wouldn't go either. One of the first few I remember going to, I seen a few deals. Got a pair of insulated and waterproof gauntlets for around $20. I still use them. Now I don't think you can get a beer and a hot dog for $20.

I still like looking at the new bikes and such. And running in to a few people I know in the bike world is always fun. This year I'm going to try on a bunch of riding boots, and hopefully pick up a pair.

I used to live up there. I can remember going to the new bike show (don't know what it was called back then) in the early 80's in St. Paul.

Bought my first helmet there, a Shoei Z100.

If you guys want to meet up in the afternoon, let me know. I want to run around and try on as many boots as I can, before it gets stupid nuts in there. I plan on getting there when they open @ 10am on Saturday. By the afternoon I'll be ready to head out. Maybe we can catch lunch somewhere?

Sweet! I wish I was going to the Phoenix one. I take it you're not going to the Mpls. one then? :joke:
