Does anyone know about this show? This is the first year I have seen ads for it. Is it any good?

I went to one there a couple of years ago and it was for the most part a great place to get a new pair of chaps. :rolleyes:
They had some older Japanese show bikes on display but not much else other than harley's, choppers and stuff.

Well I have a different take on it. Now most of the local dealers, (Bob's BMW, Pete's Cycle, Baltimore Harley Store) come to this show and not go to the DC International show because they feel the crowds are better and the display area is much less expensive. They do have the normal custom bike show and the "rat" bike show plus your prerequisite tattoo show and bikini contests. Each year there are more vendors that are showing up, but still not of the quality of the international show. Is it worth the price of admission, I don't know. If your looking to browse the new models, sure. If you're looking for custom ear plugs, probably. If you want to check out the latest super hi-tech radar jammer that fits on the FJR, don't waste your money.

This show has been hit or miss for me. The most recent one I went to - 2010, I think - wasn't great, but okay. The year before that was outstanding. YMMV.
I love my horse, but my bike listens better.

For the record, we went to this show. About 90% Harley. The custom bikes were pretty good. My favorites were the Marine Corps bike and the Resident Evil bike. As for the rest of the show, I was glad we got in for $5 off each. We were underwhelmed. As much of a pain it is to go to the one in DC it is a much better show.
