Motorcycle: 2009 gsxr1000, 2006 gsxr750 track bike
I could see the more Southern venues having more bikes in the parking lot. But here in the Midwest chances are we won't be riding to the Chicago show in February and its a nice little injection of motorcycles in the middle of winter.

Most of them do have more bikes in the parking lot. The one that I hear is very good is in Cali, but I haven't been yet.
I've only been to the one in Long beach CA and have never thought that it was anything special I went for the first two years then stopped. Then again I really have no interest in purchasing a new bike and have all of the gear/tools that i need.
