    Thanks.
    Do you think it's code talk to keep the rift raft out?

    To answer WI Sharon's question, there are always airheads for sale at the expo.
    Apart from Mac's R80, I have an R75/5 that would be particularly well suited for a cafe make-over.
    Thanks James - PM sent.

    I wonder if the snow will be melted by then??

    Thanks for updating the thread Brewmeister (Scottie). I'll see you there. I don't know how many of our Airhead friends might attend, but I am going to bring my camping grill, and make Chihuahua's to snack on. All are welcome,... I'll be camping out in my van.

    Turnout

    This was the first year I went to this event and was quite disappointed in the low turnout of both buyers and sellers. I will probably go again next year to see if this year was just a bad year because of bad weather.

    Sour weather has a definite effect, but it does seem to shrink a little every year. I will keep going because I want the event to keep going.

    The internet (eBay) has killed the event.. Well, that and less people work on their own bikes..
    It's just like how the MOA's Flea Market used to be pages upon pages every month.. Now there's really no reason to print it..

    I also laugh because when the weather is bad (it's an indoor event) people say it's bad because nobody rides in.. When the weather's great, they say it's bad because everyone rides in and nobody can haul anything home..



    I remember when it wasn't an indoor event, and getting snowed on..
