Ottawa International Motorcycle Show

Hi guys and gals, it's back. The Ottawa bike show. Hope to see some of you guys there; I'll be wearing my Star vest. If you see me, don't be shy and say hello.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Hi yall. the show was Ok. Lots of nice girls, bikes and food. But I found that the area dealers must want Yamaha to fade away. I went to the dealers booth and the bikes they had were crotch rockets, a few used cruisers and a scooter. On the other hand, the HD dealer had a full third of the floor space of the show. There was even a pots and pans dealer selling his wears. I just wonder why Yamaha was not fully represented at this show.

I find the same thing at the Toronto shows. They suck compared to what they use to be. But the big bike stores are gone from that area too. Mc Brides..cycle world etc.

I just hope the show in Montreal isn't more of the same. If it is then I think I'll take a few years off of going to them to see if they change. Hopefully the show organizers will have a feedback system to help them with contacting the "smaller" makes so that they can show their wares better.

Ride safe
