The big bike show charges a huge amount of money for a display area, so the smaller manufacturers generally don't go. For quite a few years, even Triumph didn't want to pay that much, and didn't go. I think they should have a floor area with lower rates for smaller displays by smaller makers, so you could go and see MV Agustas and Bimotas and Moto Guzzis and Royal Enfields and Urals all of that. That would make me more likely to go as well. No, MOTUS isn't at the show.
