Yep, I've got them. I deal with it by looking at my own videos and dreaming of the riding season to come. How pathetic is that!

For anyone else in a similar sorry state, here's a few of my favourites. You may have seen some or all before, but at this time of year I figure that any diversion is a good diversion - even a retread.

Bike show here next weekend. Now if my local rich friends don't buy up the joint before I get there I will have something to see.

The Toronto show was lame this year (as far as "adventuring" goes). Mostly jewelry and leather pieces for the Harley crowd. Hopefully your experience is better.

The stud and leather show in TO was a few weeks ago. And a similar show is in March.

The Manufacturers show in TO is Feb 20-22, Feb 13 in Moncton.

I've been to both stud and leather shows and don't need to see another.
Never been to the Manufacturers show and plan to attend in a couple weeks.

Good point. My wife's brithday is on the 21st... and she wasn't overly impressed when I suggested that we attend the show. Hmm, maybe some extra convincing and dinner reservations will sway her ways.

What is one to expect at a Manufacturer show? I really have no desire to (ever) buy a "new" bike since I am destined to tear it apart and crash it off-road. I will let the PO take the hit for depreciation value!

I've been using TracAxPc http://www.trakax.com/software/pc/ for a while now.

I started using it because my PC was slow and it was the only software I found that handled GoPro files speedily. I've tried a whole bunch of different programs and while they are all a bit different, they all do the same stuff and are all a bit of a bugger to learn.

Some of my early stuff is too long and boring: no one else wants to sit on your shoulder and see you ride for 10 minutes, no matter how interesting the road or trail. I try to stick to the 5 second rule (for a single clip) and mix views etc. - which, of course, means multiple cameras..........

It's a vortex - easy to get sucked in to! Good luck.

Never been, but it should have more OEM manufactures there and dealerships/shops. Looks like still lots of leather and such, but more stuff for others.

Get on a plane and come out to the island. Beg, borrow or steal a bike while you are here. We ride all year around.

I just booked a flight and am renting a bike - but far to the east, not the west.
After some hiking, Ill be riding a Royal Enfield in the UK.

I'll remember your suggestion for next year though -thanks.
