If It is a rainy day I will go....otherwise yardwork and riding will prevail. (Here in so cal we have that option..not the yard work but the riding in december ha ha ha) It may be a socialist state but at least the roads are clear and twisty this time of year.



Also bring some cash or plastic because there is plenty to buy.

Default Oh yeah, Seattle...

I'll be at the Seattle show this weekend! It's raining this week (status quo) so it'll be good to get away from the usual and have a little diversion. Looking forward to it.

Yeah it could be a regional thing. As i Reacall there was a lot of "cruiser stuff" at The LA show but Cruisers dominate the Market here. I do recall there being a lot of fringe (Not that Kind) booths, mircale polishers and things of that ilk. Though I think this is pretty normal for shows of this nature.

I went the ohio show last year. Although it is an excellent show I remember a few points that everyone should know:

1. The show did not take up the entire convention hall, there was a home and garden show and a fur sale at the same time. This made for absolutely no place to park and an absolute NIGHTMARE. Which leads me to my second opinion:



2. Get there early! By 11am it was a zoo. You couldn't walk from one place to another. If you can go on Friday, by all means do so.



3. There is much to see. Please go to it. It is an incredible show and one you must go and see!

I also go to the Ohio show, for the last 10 years. You are 100% right to get there early. Also, it sucks that the home and garden and fur show people get to park for free, while we have to pay. See if you can't park on that side, and just walk down the side of the building. Also, is it just me, or is the bike show here getting smaller every year?

this is off the subject but I grew up in the great northwest, though in Moscow Idaho. Recently my wife has been talking about moving to the northwest.....Just exactly how many days of the year do you get good riding weather.

Thanks

I'll be going Friday night (coincidentally my birthday). Unfortunately, I won't be able to ride to the show this year. My '75 Gold Wing needs a new transmission. It's at MaxRPM in Bremerton, just about the only people I would trust it with. I haven't missed the Cycle World motorcycle show in about 5 years. It's a great time out from the drudgery of daily life.

I commute from Bainbridge Island to downtown Seattle everyday on my naked '75 Gold Wing (or I did before the transmission packed it in). If you define "good riding days" as any day when the roads are dry, then I'd say 80% of the year. If you want some warmth as well, make that 40%. Of course, that's only for Western Washington.

yes. It seems like there is so much that they could do with the space. (for those who have not been to the Ohio show. The convention center used to be a factory for Tanks. This place is unbelievable.)



As more people show up, the place gets smaller. I'm going on Friday. That way I can at least SIT on the bikes I want to see. Instead of looking at them from 30 feet away like last year.
