Hey are the winter bike shows here in the states worth the admission price? The NEC in England had nekkid chicks, Ghostrider's bike, chopper and other custom build off's, and ALL the new models as well as awesome discounts on gear/parts. Just looking for opinions!

I usually go but seem to be disappointed alot more often than not. definately no nekkid chicks a few brolly dolly types but nothing risque- americans are WAY too uptight for that. sounds like you may be new here so let me give you the rundown: violence is ok, boobies are bad. don't ask me why.

I was disappointed in the MotorTrend International Car Show that advertised a "Motorcycle Hall" which in turn was a room with an Agust MV, a Duc and a few custom choppers, and about 40 scooters. It was worthless to go to just for that. The only good show for bikes is the one in Vegas, I forgot the name, but all the vendors and manufactures show for that one.

I go the the show in NYC almost every year just to see and sit on what might be my next racebike. As long as the asshats from OCC don't show up, it's not too bad, you just have to get there early to avoid the crowds.

Plus they sell beer.....so ya can leave with a nice BUZZ!!!!

All the shows I have been to have been displaying next years model. It sometimes intrigues me enough to go, or if I am really bored that day. But for the most part I wont go anymore.

i got these pics at the NEC in england in '04: They also had a MX stunt competition, trails exhibitions, fashion shows, meet n greet with Shane Byrne, Neil Hodgson, Colin Edwards, Foggy, ect, a Harley Dance group, mini-moto ride, KTM super Moto ride (free for those with full leathers on), and a Speed contest to see who could change out a set of rims the fastest on a stock superbike.

Damnit! No Florida shows.... I just don't get it, Fl is one of the highest motorcycle per capita states, and they don't have the show there?
