Went Saturday with a couple of friends. They did a great job putting it together. Suzuki and Yamaha were the only big name motorcycle manufacturers who showed up. Hopefully next year it will be bigger, but it was well worth attending this year.

The Quadski caught my attention. I could never afford one at $43,000, but the technology on it was impressive. Short video of it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiCTX5E0rqk

I rode over with a couple friends from Sarasota Saturday morning, thought it was a pretty good Expo. Enjoyed talking to the manufacturers and the vendors, some who are on here. Went ahead and rode back Saturday night, traffic was crazy on I4. Glad I was on the ST1300.

Went back to see the inside show and it was well worth the trip.



Pig in the sand






Good way to smooth out the log crossing

I hope somebody took a pic of that.

3 of us all agreed, the best $15 spent this year. I think other makers were watching & will in all in next year. Bought a pair of kevlar pants to cover my shorts to take demos on a Gladiola, DL & topped it off with losing my Busa virginity-holy crap! Wish those pants were waterproof! Yamaha bunch were a tad less forthcoming with rides and quit before the Suzi folks-lost a sale to me there, boys.

Nice pics guys, I didn't put it on my calender and forgot about it, otherwise I would have come down to bury my pig in the sand too.

This is awesome....I talked to one of the reps for Schuberth Friday about some issues I've had with my C3 Helmet, and from the chatter on the internet, I figured I was hosed...he told me to send it to him and he would make it right...excellent !!

The show was GREAT!!! Like no other moto show/event I've ever been too.. The stuff inside was mind boggling, just tons of cool in there.. The outdoor area was really fun, on the dirt I rode a Suzuki 750 quad-Suzuki 400 quad. On the street I rode the new Yamaha triple FZ 09-twice!!

Watched a few guys on the ADV course and was really wishing I had the Ténéré with me.. Will absolutely be going back next year!!

Kick-ass time!
