The Cleveland motorcycle show is this weekend. I'm planning to head out there on Saturday. Anyone else planning to go?

No. I have other plans for this weekend. But thanks for the offer of a coffee :)

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

I was there about the same time, from 1 until just about 5. I've never seen it so crowded! The parking lot had more cars than I've ever seen, and the show floor was so packed it was hard to move!

I took a bunch of pictures, I'll post them once I've pulled them off my camera.

Yes it was quite crowded. Especially early. Started to thin out some when we left.

The bikes that impressed me the most were the BMW K1600 GTL. First one I have seen up close. That is a beautiful machine. Couldn't stop looking at it. Went back four times. If it rides like it looks (and by all the reviews I have seen or read it does), wow is all I can say. Will honda ever catch up with that?

The other was the victory cross country tour. I am not a v-twin fan, but that is a pretty bike.

Lastly was the Indian Cheiftan.

I was disappointed in the Honda exhibit.

As with most things like this in the US, this seemed driven toward the v-twin crowd.

Did purchase some patches for a vest the wife bought me for Christmas. Most of the vendors were really busy. Did talk with the Kryptonite rep and they have a neat GPS tracking system for bikes now. My son may put one on his cbrr1000.

Overall nice show. Reminds me of the auto shows minus the vendors selling their wares. Gets you itching to ride.
