Same old, same old. Didn't really notice all that much difference this year than from the last time I went two years ago. Since moving to the Convention Center it has not been near as much a vendor show as it was before, but if you really need to spend money at a motorcycle show go up to Vancouver. The upcoming Euromoto in Lynnwood show will gladly empty your wallet as well, but even there the deals are an illusion - save the sales tax at best on a jacked up priced item.

Thank you everyone

...For re-affirming my decision not to go.
I took the dogs out, instead. We had fun.

Hayviator, you hit the nail on the head, didn't miss a thing and verbalized what I was thinking when I walked around. The lack of smaller focused, local and specialist suppliers was dreary and depressing.

And lordy, are we a fat bunch.

That's funny. My wife digs up a few good ones occasionally.
