Minneapolis Motorcycle Show, Jan 11-13 2013

There are vague and specific allusions to this in a few other threads, lets centralize a bit.

Progessive International Motorcycle Show

January 11-13, 2013

We have some people coming down from up north, over from 'sconnie, and the usuals from the Twin Cities area.

Couple of planned gatherings:

Some limey twit going to Brits Pub around noon Saturday
BMWMOCM and ADV gathering at Market BBQ Saturday night

What we seem to be missing is an early breakfast before the show Saturday... Any interest?

Not as big as Chicago, but pretty decent. Twin Cities peeps are worth the trip and there will be food and drink. If you're thinking of making the journey, someone will have a place for you to crash.

The exhibitor list is in the link, most major mfgrs and plenty of gear outlets and dealers. I don't know that it is great, but it is the best we have.

It's better than the Iowa City show, but not as good as Chicago.
