I'm driving in with my buddy. Don't know why, other than he has a portable toilet, lol. Hopefully we'll catch you down there.

No Ducati (WTF?)
No Triumph (bummer)

Plenty to see anyway. That cool Indian flat tracker is there. Yamaha brought a bunch of the "yard built" bikes that have been appearing in the press, and they're nice. The Kawi 900RS is terrific... probably the best retro bike yet. There are four Ninja 400s for the small-bike fans to check out.

Good deals to be had on helmets (how about a one-year-old Shoei X-14 graphic for $525?).

Some of the eagerly anticipated bikes are not there. The Duke 7whatever is nowhere to be found. While the lovely Honda CB1000R is there, the new CB300R isn't.

I dropped by Helite to say hi and talk about the new track air vest I got thanks to Bruce's group buy, and the guy put a street version on me and gave me a demo. Impressive... that sucker gets TIGHT and feels very secure when it fires.

Yeah, this was a good time for my first show. Didn't feel like I got to see everything in the end, but that was my fault for too much yapping with people and vendors.

It's nice to be able to see most bikes, and helmets, etc... under one roof and try them on for size and what not. Finally found an AGV helmet that actually fits my head through this exercise. Really like the fit of the new Ninja 650 gas tank. Will be my updated bike in a few years as they start to trickle down. Some of the custom bikes were cool to look at, but most looked like they would be horrible to ride.

Saw the lithium batteries form Deltran/Batttery Tender and seemed like a pretty inexpensive option compared to some out there. They were also giving 25% off at the show, but I totally forgot to go back and pick one up before the show ended, duh. Not a ton of deals to be had, but there were some depending on what you are looking for. The stunt show was pretty good, just fun to watch people with such good balance and control.

Pic of lunch stop on the way down, a cool brawler looking bike, the Indian Flat Tracker, and a custom that I thought was well done.
