Looks like the wife and I are going on Saturday Feb 11th to the show.
Would be nice to see some gl1800riders.com people there.
Looks like No Honda Corp this year.
My wife wants to see the Can Am Spyders.
Of course all the other stuff too. :)

I'd like to go, but went to the St. Louis show and was not impressed.

Does anyone have a guess s to how much larger the Chicago show might be ?

They do have American Honda Corp listed on the exhibitors list. Wouldn't that be the same thing?

I'm going to try and pop into the show, just don't know the date and time yet...

That is correct.
I had overlooked it when I posted it originally.
I just forgot to correct that.
No one was responding so I just forgot about the thread. :)

Decided I do not need the J&S jack at this time.
I also don't intend on buying a Spyder anytime soon,so I am out on the Chicago motorcycle show.
Have fun whoever ends up going.

It's all about the event, not the product. With that in mind last year I spent $700+ on a new Shoei helmet and J&M headset, which I love. I had no intention of buying or looking for such, but when I came across seller with great price I bit.


Each year our riding group of 4 (+1 in AZ who doesn't attend, of course, cause were attending in Chicago) attend just to hang together. It is a opportunity to get the **** out of the house for several hours in the midst of winter, see a few new or same 'ole motorcycles/accessories, have a drink or 2, plan the upcoming year's ride and just have a good time...just sayin'...:wink2:

I was only going for the jack discount and my wife wanted to see the spyders.
Since I need neither, I cancelled.
I do not like crowds at all.
That is also why I usually only ride with one other person..threes a crowd. (sorry couldn't help myself)

And the drama continues.....
A friend of mine says he wants to go if he can get the day off.
My wife told me she will go if the friend does not go because that was what I originally wanted to do.
This is exactly why I do so much by myself...well....
I only have the 3 voices in my head to contend with. hahahaha

I will be there tomorrow (Saturday) with a friend of mine and his son.
We will get there abut 10 or so.
I have no clue how I would be able to tell if someone from this forum is there to say hello.

I was there and never saw a Gold Wing shirt.
Sorry I missed you RK.
I did break down and buy one of the J&S lifts.
I am happy I did.
Very nice quality.

Those were pretty nice looking lifts. I guess all the strange looks for yelling "flat6bagger, where are you?" were for nothing.

After stopping the 154th person and asking "have you seen a guy with a Gold Wing shirt on?"
And them saying "H**L NO! Get away from me!"
I just gave up.:grin2:
