    I have 2 extra spots in the truck if anyone wants to tag along.

    No $, since I intend on going whether or not anyone wants a lift, but....you must buy the first coffee.

    Nice of you to offer but I just put in an order for 3 sets of tires, a stator for Stephanie's F650GS and chain and sprockets for my 800GS. Lead me not into temptation... :lol3

    I might be interested. What's your proposed departure time from each city?

    Hit the show this morning and it was pretty good...if you went last year you probably saw everything there though. Not really any new bikes...no Huskies, no new KTM's. Mostly just new colors on existing bike. Lots of pirates and pirate stuff.

    Rene Cormier was there with his bike and it was nice to catch up with him.

    A booth for the Orange Crush event was there with a couple of nice 990's.

    Was a good distraction from winter though.

    I attended the show today and I was looking for a 990 but didn't see any. Maybe one was there and I just missed it because I completely missed the Harley booth (although maybe my subconscious totally blocked the visual image of any Harley Davidson motorcycle from registering on the fore lobes of my brain). Saw a 640 though and got all hot and bothered. What's this Orange Crush event?

    I tried to get a photo of the Canadian Moto Guide Suzuki V-Strom long-term test ride motorcycle but some people stepped in the way.

    The only 990 were at the Orange Crush booth (http://orangecrushadventure.com/orange_crush_adventure/) They a Baja edition, and another one with a nice custom paint job. No 640's that's for sure...there was s 690 at the KTM booth maybe that's what you meant?

    Yeah, I meant the 690. that's what happens when you're keyboarding late at night. I was somewhat disappointed KTM didn't have a 990 in their booth.

    I missed the Orange Crush booth altogether. Damn. That looks like an awesome event. Kudos for the organizers if the Orange Crush for organizing it as I'm sure it is a non-trivial exercise trying to coordinate the sponsors and everything.
