    Im not for sure about demo,rides,what all bikes that can be ridin., I know yamaha lists the xt1200, the fjr,& fz8 ,as some. but also alot on display,& yes vendors selling gear apperal, food,,the best info is @ www.blueridgebikefest.com check out scheduel of events , & look @ the event sponsors, &promotors, (example ,motorcycle dealers participating) will be best guess on bikes that will b there. & if u need more there is a reply ? link & a phone #. for info.

    Friday looks to be the best day,for a no chance of rain forcasted by local wdbj 7 (CBS), which is the shortest event day of the 3 day event. I recieved an up date from Star motorcycles (as long as there is no standing water,from rain, demo rides are on as scheduled), I assume light rain wont be an issue. But thats a PR> statement. who knows,I will wait & see ,go & report,take pics & spin the whole ball of yarn!!!I plan 2 post PICS & news of the event by mon. or tue. night est time U.S.A.I hope 2 see some of my fellow advriders there.
