Bike show NEC

Anyone down at the NEC tomorrow? Should I be prepared for the total and utter disappointment it used to be when I was a annual visitor?

I don't think I'll be bothering with the NEC or Excel shows any more. I've seen the future, and it is called EICMA Milan.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Yep - generally as poor as it ever was with even less retail than I remembered too. Managed to get some decent kit for the kids. Was nice to see all the latest bikes, and sit on a few potentials for my 2019 ride.

Ha, see where you are coming from Andy, I use to be critical of it, but these days it`s more of a social thing to have a weekend out with friends. Come to think of it I use to be critical of most things until I happened upon enlightenment, in the form of new life grandchildren. it`s what you make of it, all promo shows are stereotypical and not what they are hyped up to be. Chill man! Hope you happened across your next ride :)
