The Moncton Motorcycle Show was the first bike show I had ever been to.

If I had a scanner I'd put up photos of a 130 lb skinny kid sitting the the street squirrel's weapon of choice, the RD350 LC and the mighty CBX1000 complete with Hondaline bags and fairing.

If you only have a "passing interest" in bikes, I urge you not to go. Something was placed in my fries and gravy that day which resulted in a 33 year long addiction and tens of thousands of dollars being spent.

This show is always a pleasant surprise - brands are well represented, crowds are manageable.

I was, frankly, disappointed.

There was less industry representation than years past and some manufacturers didn't even bother to show up! The vendors present had large venues that were very sparsely populated. Suzuki and Kawasaki were conspicuous by their absence. Also, I found that other vendors like A Vicious Cycle weren't there either.

If the Exhibitors list is as small next year, we won't be going.


On the upside - I did score a nice Alpinestars Neck Brace on the cheap at Atlantic Motoplex!

You'll be able to shoot a cannon through there this morning. The weather is a little off this morning.

There were a few vendors absent, Indian, Can-Am, Suzuki, and Kawasaki. I was interested to see that HD could turn a $17,000 bike into a $45,000 bike with a few options. They had a few bikes for over $40,000. I need to choose the option where my salary increases in relation to the increase in HD's prices. Seems to me I haven't had a real raise in years. I forgot to look at the new BMW F800 GS ADV, I wasn't aware of this model and didn't look at it, oops.

Weather today will wipe out the show, if it isn't closed completely.

I thought the show was sadly very disappointing this year.
