I may be down for the MN show... Coming all the way from Thunder Bay ON. I would have to make it to the Friday afternoon showing though, as I work Saturday afternoon. I wanted to go to the Toronto show but they foolishly host it in December.
I've been several times in Atlanta, it is a good show but I wouldn't drive 150 miles to it though.
Any excuse to ride is a good excuse. Driving.. not so much.. but I enjoyed it last year. There were all kinds of motorcycles on display - Versys (ofcourse), concours 14, KLR, and a few cruisers at Kawi, the super tenere, FJR and a few others at yamaha booth, and a few BMW's. Honda also had a bunch of motorcycles on display including the Goldwing. There were lots of people sitting on the 'wing and trying it out, and a guy with a spray bottle and a towel trying to wipe it down every chance he got. I think there was a big HD booth, but I don't tend to go that way - they usually have some nice booth babes, maybe I will check 'em out this year. There were quite a few motorcycles. The place was packed with vendors and they were selling all kinds of things. Bought a couple of heated gear items. Got a good discount - better than any I could find online.
I guess there is no such thing as a bad motorcycle show for me.
I went downtown at about 3:30 pm and left at about 7 pm. It was a good show.. checked out the two Versys that were there, the Concours 14 at the Kawasaki display. I also checked out Honda NC700X, the various Beemers, and the Triumph Trophy SE. It is a huge bike, but very comfortable and has all kinds of bells and whistles.
