    I have been to that show. It was one of the best I have been to here in Michigan. It's mostly a custom builder show but with a few vendors. Lots of builder talent mixed in with some "yawn" catalog customized bikes.

    I'd go again if I wasn't working that weekend.

    Lots of empty space and not a great crowd of onlookers. Probably more a sign of the times, and no we did not ride to this one! Although I did give it a lot of thought. Really enjoyed the oler bikes there better than some of the customs and modded ones.

    Simply fucking terrible, I have been to this show for the last 5 years straight and this year was terrible. I won't be going back. I don't know what happened but the bottom fell out on this one. I felt like I was at a service department of a dealer

    WOW Guys... I know it use to be a great show... well 5+ years ago when I lived in the Flint area. Of course that was around the chopper boom.

    Al, that is a sad excuse of a show if it was that bad.

    What I hate about most of the shows is that guy with his $12k VTX* and $2k worth of Kury parts catalog thrown at it. Plastic chrome on top of plastic chrome.







    *by no means a reflection of a VTX in a negative light but just used as an example. LOL
