Looks like most, at least according to this:

http://www.motorcycleshows.com/manufacturers/motorcycle-manufacturers

But I know Ducati, KTM, Harley, for sure from posts on BARF. I'm heading out in a couple hours to check it out.

Weather was good for my ride up from Santa Cruz, and bike parking was just steps from the entrance even at 1PM on Saturday. It seemed like the smallest show ever, but the Big 4 were there as well as Triumph, Harley and CanAm, with dealer exhibits of Ducati and KTM. Triumph had a couple of 1200 Explorers (did they have to license the name from Ford?) available for sitting on, and Suzuki had both the DL650 VStrom and the reincarnated DL1000 as well. I don't know if it's new, but the black KLR650 with black rims is probably the best-looking KLR ever ...

Yeah, but you missed me by an hour! Next time, Man! Saw Benjava and tr1200 there. Got there about 10 left about 2. It was pretty cool. Great day for a ride, that's for sure. No KTM in the demo area this time-bummer. No Nolan helmet vendor there either this year. However, the Arai guy said the new XD4 is coming out soon-look for improvements.
See ya on the next ADV trail....

Ha ha. That'll fit well, i'm sure! I drove up to Munroe's after the show and looked around a bit. They had some cool stuff on the floor too.
