Has anyone ever been to one of the International Motorcycle Shows? There is one near me Jan 30-Feb 1 (Cleveland, OH). Due to work, the only day I could go would be Sunday the 1st. I was wondering if it would be worth the 2 hour drive and the cost of tickets? I would go mostly to look at all the accessory venders and not so much the motorcycle companies themselves, although it would be neat to see all the new ideas. Thank you for your input.

I agree with shepsvoyager! The Minneapolis show has all the bikes and lot of vendors. Makes for a great day during the cold and snowy Minnesota winter. I go every year...

Our local dealer charters a bus trip from Des Moines to Minneapolis every year. Wife and I have gone last 2 years and always enjoy it. Won't be able to go this year, we will be in Jamaica celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary

They are worth it. Yes. you get the normal dealer displays and schwag booths, but there is often a section for vintage and classic bikes, and another for custom bikes. Well worth it. Plus, if you're in the market, many dealers will cut good deals at these thing so they don't have to haul the bikes back to the the dealership.

MidIA,

Is it Struthers that charters? I've driven up a couple of times and wasn't aware of the charter. We need to meet up sometime. I just got a 2014 Vaquero from Struthers in August and also from Ankeny.
