BMW is supposed to be fully represented at all shows this year. I'm hoping this is the year things start getting better, or I might stop going. Definitely riding if it's not icy or snowing.

I checked the vendor list and I saw all the major brands... the big four Japanese bikes, BMW, Triumph, KTM, Ducati, and so on. I saw some photos from the Long Beach show on Twitter and it looks like Zero might be there too. That'd be neat to see in person.

Not sure what the door price is but if it is $13 not sure if going online is worth it.

update...just found a site that says gate price is $15.
Thanks for the code. I bought 3 tix and saved enough cash for a frosty beverage.

I'll be checking out the show for sure. Yes, it has been much reduced since the heady days before 2008, but there's a 'quaintnence' to it now that it's back at the convention centre. Plus, my other passion besides motorcycles is the persuit of the best beers,,,,and the Tap Room is a quick walk around the corner, and happy hr starts early there.
Wonder if Skagit Motorcycles in Burlington has reduced price tickets?

Regarding the comments of the Vancouver Show, expect a slightly reduced size this year. The fiasco of the collapsed tent onto displays will mean the elimination of that extended area. Also, the show is being promoted by separate entities now, slightly different format.

Hi Inmates,

I will be working the Racetech booth so if you want to stop in and take a look at some of our suspension components and check out the show specials I would be more then happy to help you out. If you just want to chat about suspension not a problem either.

Booth #2540

Triumph is back. All the majors will be there. Seems like things are headed in the right direction. (I hope Ducati girls will be there serving espresso - almost made me buy a bike once. )

BMW and the Wasser Boxer!

Rumor has it that not only will BMW be there but they are bringing the new Wasser Boxer!

Also, our booth (South Sound BMW) will have a Unit Garage conversion on a 2012 R1200GS Rallye!

Thanks-
Tot
