Nothing stuck up about that.
That's kinda how I feel. Not saying I'll never go again, but the show wasn't so great. Best bike I saw was a Guzzi parked outside.

What can I say? I was having one of those days yesterday. I did go to the show today with pops, and as we all know it was mostly cruiser stuff BUT I did see some cool stuff there that I haven't seen first hand yet such as the new retro style Ducs (very nice indeed) and the new Triumph Scrambler (also a cool little bike). Also some some BITCHIN' MV Agustas. Both local BMW shops were there. First thing you see when you walk in is Atlanta BMW and a nice new 1150 GS (DRROOOOL!) in it's magnificent blue and white color scheme. Also, heads up for anyone wanting a DL1000...Machines in Motion (based in Cumming) had a new red 06 for friggin' $5695!!! What a deal! Wish I could've bought it. Very nice indeed. My dad's friend owns an Iron Horse dealer by McFarland Rd and they were selling those bikes left and right. It was 3 hours well spent, IMO. Not as many nearly naked spokesgirls running around this time though, and the stunt show was delayed due to the weather. There was like 10 bikes parked outside is all!

fixed, glad you had fun. I'm down with cruisers for what they are...I have often said I may even have a chopper one day for the hell of it, for "show!" (in addition to a GS of course). I'm my family's black sheep:



My dad's back kills him too, so I don't understand, why not an RT/LT or somethin comfortable, any brand? (HD elitest attitude, all due respect dad) Mom too, for that matter.

See my mom working there?? She was NOT nearly naked though. I think, I hope.

Normally that's a show in itself, were you and pops 2 of 10?

that price was for a dl650, it was kinda misleading, showing a 1K with the price tag from a 650

Really? If that's true, then that is not only misleading, that is BULLSHIT.

I did a double take on that also - until my 10 year old daughter pointed out that it said DL650 on the sign.

"See dad, it's just like yours."

Guess the $7 to get her in was worth it!
