Re: Bike Show

I was @ the Calgary show yesterday & the new Gixxer line-up is looking the hottest IMO.

have to disagree with you there, couple years back the manufactures got fed up with the flea market atmosphere of this show started having the one in december, I mean when I go to a bike show I want to see bikes and apparrel, having to wade through 15 vendors selling tube socks is just annoying

What type of stands did you get? Did the guy selling them on GDC ever get back to you for shipping to Canada?

He never got back to me so i did some looking into it and by the time it was shipped from him to me it was 35shipping+taxes+brokerage so i was guessin it would have been close to or over 200 so i got some at the show.They are made by bikelift i believe and i got home put the bike up on them and am very happy.

Re: Bike Show

I was there on Saturday and managed to find a Shoei X-11 for $600 tax in for my friend, it was not my size and a pair of badass A-Stars gloves that are normally $175 for $60 tax in for my other friend, they were too small for me. There were some good deals out there, but none in my size.
But there was some eye candy though

I agree. The "supershow" was a complete waste of time. I did manage to pick up a set of K2 Metzler Racetecs for $325, but aside from that it was brutal. I won't be returning next year.
