BMW sure has it together, eh? Not only test rides along with a couple of others, but the only ones to support the bikers (Bike parking, helmet and coat check) Where are the big boys on this????

This year I attended the show at San Mateo - major disappointment in the lack of bikes on display there.

I hit this show in SF a few years back. HD had some test rides going, but new bikes were few and far between, and hottie umbrella chix even fewer. The CW old bikes were pretty kewl, tho.....

I'm going to go to this because it's all we've got, but to be honest it is a really pathetic show compared to those over-seas.

KTM, the only thing I really went to see wasnt even there. No booth, no KTM to be seen anywhere.

Dear Mr Editor....



Is there going to be any SuperMotard specific booths by the manufacturers or any SM for that matter? A demo?



Thanks

Mitch from Oz

I agree, BMW deserves a huge pat on the back. Anyone who has gone on their demo rides would agree. The whole experience is always world class.

I've gone to this show in many cities over the years, and will go again this weekend. Supermotard? Don't hold your breath. Utter the word "supermotard" at any show, and 8 out of 10 will respond "huh?" KTM doesn't even have a new bike display for the show circuit. But new bikes, aftermarket stuff and lots of discounted gear on sale make it worthwhile.
