IMS

Anybody else going to be in Michigan this weekend for the International Motorcycle Show? I have never been to one of these before but they are supposed to have the Super Tenere so I am going to go check it out before I order one.

I chose Novi over Chicago for two reasons. It is a month earlier and I would personally rather be kicked in the nuts than go back to Chicago for anything.

Enjoyed the show today. There were fewer exhibitors than I thought there would be but all the bikes were cool. Loved the Super Tenere and also sat on the CB1000R. If I was looking to replace the 919 that would be on my list.

Was triumph at your show? Theey were not in cleveland last year. I'll be very bummed if I don't get to see the 800xc. That looks like a seriously nice bike. Really want one.

Decided to go on Friday evening......left grand rapids at 5:00 (it's normally a 2 hour drive)......then ran into 15mph traffic from Howell to Novi. Needless to say, we didn't get there in time......

Bummer......Hopefully the Chicago show will be good.....

Can't wait to sit on the cb1000 & the new Kawasaki 1000.

Triumph wasn't at Novi. I new they weren't going to be there so can't be too disappointed. I would have loved to sit on the 800XC as well.

Artic I was caught up in a lot of that same traffic.

I'm going to the NYC one on the 22nd. Hope to get a feel for the CB1000R and Z1000. Would also like to compare a WR250X against a DRZ400SM. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to find some riding pants and boots that fit my tiny G/F.

I was very disappointed in the vendors in Novi, MI. Almost non-existent.

It's been getting worse every year at the novi show......a few of the larger local stores that use to show up have gone out of business......

The Chicago show on the other hand...... Will be so many vendors you can't possibly stop at every table in a 3 hour period of time.

Last year......killboy and his wife even showed up all the way from TN to man their own table.

I'm definately going this year as I've never been before.

Discount codes I've found:

Save $4 off the price of a one-day ticket to the Progressive International Motorcycle Show- ABATE

MOTOINF when ordering your tickets to receive a $3 discount

JM2013 $3 off per ticket

I'm holding out for a few more weeks to see if better deals come out. I used to get into all shows at the javits for free by showing my Union card but I don't think they do that anymore.
