2007 International Motorcycle Show - Minneapolis, MN

put up all of the pictures that were worth a crap on my site:
Click Here!

the lighting in this "convention center" was pretty crappy, and most of the displays were so poorly setup that really taking pictures was difficult due to the number of people walking between you and the bikes....

on the good side, some of the people displaying their bikes were really awesome (like the guy who HAND BUILT his Buell 1203t (as in turbo) Harley VR1000 quasi replica), and the ability to basically touch every bike was a plus.

some of the show was good, some was bad, but overall, since I hadn't been to one in quite a while, I did enjoy it.

However, I want to point out that it was FUCKING ZERO DEGREES OUTSIDE with a windchill somewhere around MINUS 35 while i was up there.

Oh, and there were a total of, iirc, 6 booth girls.

and four of those were the Progressive Insurance girls at the front door.

Other than that, only Ducati (gotta love the italians) even had booth girls.....

bastards.

LOOOOOOVE that Vincent.

Cool pics, but ya I know what you mean about the lighting. I had a good flash, so they didn't turn out too bad.

Doesn't look like the show has changed much since long beach. :

i had my flash with me when i went. but thought, "i shouldn't need that in a well lit room since I have the little flip up fill flash for most anything...."

so i left it in the truck.....

bad move.

shagz has some pics too....

his little sony camera with a built in flash also worked better without it due to the crappy lighting conditions....

I'm going to the Chicago show this weekend.

Did they have any good deals on apparel? I am looking for a new jacket.

I went last year and was disappointed in the amount of chicks there as well.
