I think I'm going to pass this year. Between the high admission price, parking and the same ol same ol line ups of bikes, its just not that special any more.

?

My ticket was $11 and parking is free when you're on a bike. So, it's costing me $11.

I wasn't impressed with the show the last 2 years. It seems to get worse every year. Went last year just because my dad got 2 free tickets. It was unexciting. I suspect this year will be the same. Yall have a good time.

FUCK Canada

It was ok, but no BMW or Triumph. What's up with that??? I would have loved to have been able to check out the S1000RR since it has been killing everything else.

99 GT with all the bolt ons you will ever need (and 35 more boxes waiting to be installed)

06 Mercedes C230 (wifes new car since there are still 35 boxes in the garage)

03 Yamaha R1 (custom Blue lightning airbrushed show bike)

05 Raven R1 Awsome wheelie bike(now sold)

KTM is supposed to have their new electric dirtbike out there that I wanted to check out. If the weather is nice enough, I'll probably ride down there.

Well, I bring along two teenagers, so that cancels out riding the bike and my ticket price multiplies too. Hence my hesitation to drop $50+ to see an incomplete line-up of 2010/11 offerings, many of which are retreads these days.

Eurosport in Fort Worth is having their Triumph demo day again tomorrow, http://www.eurosportcycle.com/

You need a license and gear but the entire 2011 line up is there. I road a Thunderbird today, hope to get on a Rocket 3 tomorrow.
