    Int. Motorcycle Show at Chicago

    I wasn't able to go this year. Any feedback from anyone who attended? Historically, it seems to get a little smaller each year.

    Minneapolis was pretty thin this year. No BMW factory, no Harley, no Honda, no Ducati and of course, no Ducati girls. If it keeps going like this they will have to move it to someone's garage!

    Thin

    Sounds very thin, it boggles the mind that Harley would not make the show in Minneapolis, I wanted to go to Chicago to the show but I hate paying to go and have people sell me stuff and would hate to pay and not see stuff. I did not go to Chicago because tickets were several dollars more than Cleveland, Dallas, Washington and Minneapolis shows.

    Yeah, it blew my mind that Harley couldn't make the 500 mile trip. St. Paul Harley showed up in force though, perhaps there was some agreement from the MoCo and St. Paul HD. I wanted to see the Livewire in person.

    I went just to get a pair of earbuds from Fit-Ear and check out helmets.

    Smile

    Seemed about the same as last year, and the year before. BMW, Harley, Honda - all in attendance. No Ducati girls though - sadly missed. Huge Indian display.

    No MOA presence anymore either.

    Snowed plenty on Saturday - bummer.

    Still - had a good time and SO walked away with a new 3/4 jacket.

    I've always considered the Chicago show the first sign of spring, and I looked forward to it at first, and then it kept getting worse. This year I thought about going.. Usually it takes me a while to remember why I don't go, and apparently my memory was better this year

    Crowds, pirates, lack of interesting things.. Meh..

    Maybe I'll go next year?? I forget.
    Why I remember when......
