    Charlotte Bike Show

    There is a group of us meeting at the Light Rail Restaurant in Charlotte for breakfast at 9:00 am on Sat. & then riding to the free parking at the NASCAR Hall of Fame afterwards. Feel free to join us. We will leave at around 10:00 am for the bike show.

    I never check the weather but if it does rain it will keep the motorcycle parking from filling up.

    I always check. Its nc. I have ridden in tropical storms, got caught in a blizzard, massive tornado riddled air masses, rapidly falling temperatures creating black ice, etc.. Awareness of the weather is as critical to my route planning as maps, etc. To each his own.
    Enjoy the show!

    Is it me, or does the show get smaller every year? I was really disappointed with the amount of vendors. I do have to say that one of the Ducati girls was the most beautiful woman I've laid eyes on in years!

    I didn't go to the show last year but I was told it was about 40% smaller this year. A couple of vendors told me they wouldn't be back next year. Another vendor told me only 12 people stopped at his booth on Friday. The free motorcycle parking on the street was filled with cars. One guy parked his car & ripped the motorcycle only parking sign down. Beside my bike I only saw three other bikes parked on Sat. I hope they move it back to Greenville SC.

    Wow. I was done in about 45 minutes last year. If it was smaller I would have been disappointed. Thankful I decided to pass.
