I'll probably try to make the journey all the way out there, just wish they could find a way to hold this event closer to the lower mainland.

LOL! That's pretty brave. Luckily we have the tropical weather coming upstream to keep it warm but man, still chilly.

I'm going to try to make it out but it's looking grim right now.

I'm quite interested in checking out the classic British bikes and of course, the new Norton Commando.

I went a couple of years ago, this was when I wasn't that much into bikes, but since getting my class 6 things have changed . I'm looking forward to it this year, wanna see the new Honda cbr 250r and the ZX-10R =D

Totally forgot about the Honda CBR250R. This would be a good opportunity to check out the bike up close and personal without the pesky sales pressure.

Abbotsford too far for me to go Wanted to visit redline to pick up a new back protector, but not worth gas/ticket price, might as well pick it up locally at regular price

I've been a number of years ago and it was pretty weak ... no thanks. What, their GRAND prize is like $500 at Yamaha dealer ... how about a bike or a scooter for grand prize?

I stand corrected ... there is a ultimate grand prize of bikes. Still doesn't make me want to buy ticket and go though.

^The grand prize is choice of Yamaha Stryker, Fazer 8, Kodiak 45, or a pair of scooters
$500 is runnerup prize. I'm still on the fence whether to go tomorrow or not...need a new back protector, but not sure if savings is worth gas/time/entrance fee

If I was in town I'd probably go just for the hell of it, yet I have heard that it sucks balls.

If you follow bikes much the show an be quite un-eventful.
Nothing much new to look at this year.
All the new bikes seem the be changing there styling for the worse (although I do like the new Z1000)

The new gixxers don't look as good. Although i really like the body lines though. The new cbr125's are a huge improvement over last years. I also really like zx10r.
