DC IMS? Anybody go?
« on: January 15, 2014, 07:11:06 AM »

Wanted to see the new strom but figure it'll be in showrooms soon.  Did I miss anything good?

I'm sure crickets were probably heard there as well.  It was awful 15-20 years ago and just seams to get worse each year.

We talked about going but blew it off.  Nothing 'exciting' this year - our garage and closets are full.

I thought this year's show was a big improvement--wider array or marques than previous. Good to see Triumph finally there, and got to check out the new KTMs (even if that was through a local dealer's booth). The Zook booth had multiple versions of the new Stroms--650 and 1000. The new Indians were...interesting, and Victory had a strong showing--too bad none have mid-mount controls. A couple of the custom bikes were compelling (e.g., 2WD) and others were not. I went Saturday mid-afternoon, and the crowd wasn't too bad.

I'm definitely interested in going back next year, which is the first time I've said that in ages (no intention of going after last year, until this year's flier promised more marques).
