They should rename it the Abbotsford Motorcycle show.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

It's like when you want to relax after work, and instead of having 1 beer with your girlfriend on a patio, you chug a 40oz of Everclear and strap yourself to the wing of an F-22 Raptor about to take off.

i went last year and 2 years ago. i dont think ill ever go back. way too crowded and too much walking and realistically, theres nothing to see that i cant see at the dealership a month later. there really isnt any good deals on gear other than helmets from richmond motorsports and there are basically no parts available.

Went to the one in Calgary last week, tons of cute girls there

Got to check out the KTM RC8, and the Bayliss 1098 R (traction control?!)...sexy machines. So much eye candy

every yr its' the same old crap. Complete waste of time, and your done the whole show in about 15mins. Never find any good deals there. You can get better deals at the stores themselves, if you can haggle yourself a discount. If your hoping to see hot girls on bikes, good luck...

Motorcycle shows rarely have hot girls modeling. Seattle one is just the same as well. Reason, its a family event as tons of little kids ride dirtbikes and ATV's, so they keep it family friendly. If you wanna see hot girls and motorcycles together, go to a MotoGP race. Hots girls galore to keep you occupied till race day. haha.

MotoGP race, now that would be something worthwhile going to! Do they even have those races in NA? Or is it just in Asia/Europe?

i'm going only because i prefer checking out the bikes in a show environment rather than at a dealership where the salespeople either bother you to make a sale, or harass you if you so much as even breathe on a bike, yet alone try and sit on it.

Yeah, they have it in the states. They have 2, Laguna Seca which would be pretty big, and indianapolis speedway.

Hope he bumped into Tammi the business manager! She's freaking hot for her age. Total cougar and super nice person.

So far looks like this show is turning out to be nicer than the recent Seattle one, which was pretty lame.

they have some decent deals on gear, but you have to come prepared so you do not get caught up in the sales.
