Inching the bike down the incline of my driveway that morning was a chore. After attempting to navigate two blocks of treacherous neighborhood streets I turned around, put the bike back in the garage and took the truck! I like going to the Seattle show each year with the most interesting displays being the individual entries on the upper level. What a variety! My memory of seeing the 'BUB' land speed racer and looking now at the photos I took makes me want to visit that area of the show upon first arriving every time I attend. Saturdays weather is forecast to be wet but hey! This is the Pacific Northwest in December! To all of you that are attending, have a safe journey. I'll be seeing you on the road.

A few of us are meeting at opening time (3:00pm) on Friday with tickets in hand.
We tour the show, go eat something, then go back to the show.
We hope to see a few more of our friends there this year!!

I wasn't impressed. It's been 2-3yrs since I've attended, this was my first at the convention center. Basically, I thought it sucked!:eek:4:

The first word that comes to mind is sparse. There were not many vendors compared to previous years.

The show was lame. Lack of vendors to show off their wears, the manufacture displays, ok. No excitement.

Last good show was back in 2006 -07. Since then, the shows have gotton smaller with less excitement. Would love to see one of these shows in a major market area. I think the vendors treat the Seattle as a secondary market.

Couple more lame shows, and I think this one will be in the history books!

Sorry to hear that. What didn't you like about it? Was there anything about it that you did enjoy? Thanks.
Maybe I was expecting too much, but compared to the past shows at QWEST, this one was so much smaller. Maybe 1/3 the vendors....... I guess that made it feel a little less overwhelming and hectic but I think with a visit to a couple of local dealers I could have seen pretty much the same merchandise. I did enjoy the company we went with though! Scooby and his wife were fun to be with!

It was smaller than usual, but the new Honda was worth seeing :razz:
