Just got back from the show tonight andi have to say I was disappointed. The show seems to get smaller and smaller every year. However, the main reason for me going was to check out the vstrom and they did have both the standard and and venture model, so that was good.

Although I must say...the Ducati babes get better and better every year :-)

Just got back from the show and didn't think it was bad. The Ducati girls and the girls around the Moto GP bikes had to be the hottest girls I EVER saw. Actually liked looking at the custom bikes, which there were a lot of them. Saw a small booth with Aprillias in it, but it was so small, about four bikes, you could walk by it without noticing them.

No. Nor MV. Nor ANY aspect of the trials segment. (I really wanted to try on some Gaerne boots) . Knowing what IMS is all about I knew what to expect. More of a dealer show than manufacturer show. I was surprised it didn't even fill one hall. Last time I was at EICMA, it filled 4 or 5 of those halls. I did get to meet Wiseblood, ogle some sweet trade show eye candy, and pick up the aforementioned accoutrements for the Arai, so it wasn't a total loss. No WristRest, though.

Did you catch the Ducati apparel fashion show? I saw for or five really sweet little bob jobs. One built with an XS650 and skinny tires that actually looked rideable. (By the main Ducati booth, IIRC)
The steam punk Harley that was in the Moto Art booth was pretty interesting too.

On the whole though, I find the Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction a lot more appealing. What can I say? I'll take a '74 Alpina still in a crate over a GSXRYZRDS 600 any day, but that's just me.

Still, the Ducati girls are nice.

No. Which makes sense from KTM's pov. I would have loved to have seen it, but why dilute 2013 models appeal with something that won't be available until (according to a couple of orange folks there) around 1/14.

Overall I enjoyed the show. Somehow the overall vibe seemed very positive and mellow, the seminars I attended were interesting (YES school and (a little less so) the Schwantz session, good mix of non-cruiser type lifestyle vendors and some neat specials.

I ended up with a new Shoei Neotech at a very good price from the NY Honda/Yama guys. Great Price!

I picked up a new battery tender for my bike so I can now leave both bikes plugged in. As far as the gadgets go, I was disappointed. The Go Pro video like cameras Ghost and Drifter models were cool but I just couldn't justify the cost AND a new helmet to the Wife.

They had some Vanson and Belstaff gear for sale. The Adaptiv guys had a neat hi viz jacket the lights up due to a battery powered lumenencet (sp?) tape. Think of timex day glo watch lighting. Plenty of pleather and patches for the Pirate crowd. Even the states promoting tourism were down. It's definitely better than some of the KelMar shows but just seems every year I go, I'm disappointed by the vendors. I wonder if the other shows out of state have a bigger turnout by the vendors. It's a shame, because there was just as many riders there as last year.
