show itself was lame - not a lot of bikes.. a lot less than previous years.. it's more of a vendor show and if they want me to buy their crap they should pay me to enter, maybe some gas money and per deem as well.. had fun harassing the stinger's girls.. the stunt show was decent.. had fun all in all but disappointing in the number of motorcycles..

I tell ya, my BIL and me were looking at those sticky pad things for your dash board. He was talking to us, then he wanted to start a demonstration for another set of people. We were still looking at them, the guy damn near slapped my BILs hand and said "excuse me I'm trying to do a demonstration over here". BIL was going to buy one till he said that crap. F'in New Jersey F**KS! F him!

last year i thought there were quite a few customs. HD had a dealer custom show that different dealers did and then progressive had there little custom show with the bike raffle. I really thought the show had a lot of bikes last year every company had some customs of there sport bikes. I think last year the most popular bikes were the R1, hondas VFR 1300, and the new ducati monster. None of the cruisers seemed to get much attention. Im weird to in that i don't like many of the metric cruisers larger models but i think the 750s 900s 650s etc are put together way nicer than the larger ones for instance that 1700 voyager which is why my next bike in the garage will be an HD touring model. At least this summer for me to make my decision my grandpa is renting a bike for him and me to ride to traverse city to visit my aunt. He'll be getting the road king and me the street glide so i can try both out on longer rides and make up my mind.

Any ways back to the show....wish i could have went this year but wont lose sleep because with asshole vendors and the number of bikes being down from what you guys said the 45 min drive wouldn't have been worth it for me.

I went Saturday and didn't see a BMW display. I wanted to check out the new 1600 GT. Loved the cream and green Indian. 38k whew! I guess I'll stick with my 1600 Vulcan.
