Talking This year I'm going Vancouver show 2015



Having been either away on demanding motorcycle trips or simply because I was living on the Island, this year will be my first visit to the Vancouver show.

The Motorcycle Show Vancouver

Looking forward to meet some of you in person...

Who else is going?

I'll see you then, I think we'll go on the Saturday, still debating to see if I bring my checkbook with me or not.

I'll go on the weekend.
I'll be easy to recognize as I will be the guy with jeans, probably a black t-shirt,, black BMW hat, grey hair, grey beard and reading glasses.

Keep an eye out for me and maybe we can have a beer??

Cheers

I always go over on the Friday. Last year it was foggy and -1 when we left Victoria for the ferry at 6:15am and in the dark on my one week old k1300r. Won't do that again...probably catch the 9 ferry.

Last year I rode my Norton out there on the Sunday. On the way home on the hwy 1, my left exhaust rattled loose and flew off. I pulled over, but a Kenworth flattened the thing before I could grab it. Shouldn't have tried to keep up with that K1600GTL.

Mosko Moto told me that they'll have a booth at this event, for those interested in their innovative products.

http://mosko-moto.myshopify.com/collections/all

I saw that Gunnerbuck recently picked up a set of their saddlebags and after following their product development thread here on ADV, I'd like to take a good look at their stuff.
