Where are they going to put cars? I think the whole custom bike thing is really dying, so they had to come up with something else.

I totally missed the car thing. That place is packed the way it is, I can't imagine where they will put a bunch of cages...

Maybe the cars will be in that area where the swap meet is? Or have cars on the upper level where the vendors usually set up, and then put bikes on the main level?

On the video they have, they say 4 levels, so they must be doing it different then in past years. Didn't know there even WAS four levels there, shows how much I pay attention.

It depends on your definition!!!

Had some cool bikes there, and some really unique stuff, not just the big-wheel baggers that have become the rave. The car show was pretty cool. Had a great conversation with a 70-something guy that restored this 1946 Chev convertible that was absolutely flawless. Also had some really interesting rat-rods as well.

Just my opinion, but there are two things I am way over from a bike styling perspective... First, ENOUGH with the baggers that have the huge (larger than 26") front wheels. They remind me of the old 15 ft. long choppers of years past - they might look good, but you'll never ride more than 50 miles on them, which kind of defeats the purpose of a bagger.

And second, "Real Flames" should go away. Fast. Like, become illegal. There are only a few good examples that I have seen, and most of them look like crap. And overdone... Ok, rant over!

All in all, it was one of the better DS shows I have seen in recent years. Some really cool bikes put together by the High School teams. Good kids to talk to as well...
