Went this afternoon as well. No 2009 K1200LT. Nice 2008 model there though. Rick
Fairless was suppose to be there, but I didn't notice any fanfare or signs. Not sure
what he's infamous for...
Tried on Gerbing's Cascade Extreme jacket and pants for my Christmas list. G3
gloves too. Anyone have any good/bad experiences with these? Its what I plan
on buying as a riding suit.
Met some folks I know from my hometown who talked about their test rides on the
Victory Vision. Sitting on one in the arena, it seemed a bit top heavy for me. In
fact it smelled of leaking gas.
Quite a number of 'cute' distractions populating some of the booths....wow....
The "Ride Texas" magazine folks didn't come out this year.
I bought the online tickets for $10, but paid $8 for parking. Yikes! And they didn't
even wash my car. Motorcycles get in free.
They had a nice motorhome in there that could support two full size bikes in
the back and provide ramps out. Neat. I believe it was $270,000. Maybe less.
The steel ball of terror, or whatever they called it was kept outside this year.
It made a lot of noise and fumes last year in the arena. Good move.
Saw a few K1200LT's in the parking lot on the way in, and one with a rider.
Wanted to ask him if he was a member, but wanted to get inside.
