The December show is now at end of February. That used to be the show where the manufactures showed off the newest models.

Had a blast. The weather was crap so two guys who were going with the wife and I bailed so it was just us.The drive was doable. Took our time. Apparently lots of people didnt go. Got there,parked right near the door.We wandered around for five hours. Hardly any crowds except for at GP bikes.Found three FZ-09s. Two red and one graphite. YES!! The wife finally got to see what my new bike is going to look like.She was impressed. She had only seen pics and video and its hard to tell. All in all it was a good day

I was going to go but bailed on the 4.5 hour drive. I already have my FZ-09, not into leathers and just got a new helmet last year. I just have to pick up some decent spring/fall gloves. Tires used to be a big thing at the show but now I can get out of Montreal for less than show price. The only thing I would have been interested in were mod parts for my bike and they will still be scarce at shows. Glad you had a good time.

We like walking around admiring all the bikes and gear and people watching.We never usually buy much.Especially not food. How does $3.20 plus tax for a pop grab you. Went out for a big brekky at our favourite spot then strolled around taking pics. I know Humgha it doesnt sound like spring but a guy can dream cant he?
