The date now coincides with Interbike. A humongous Bike Vendor display show
If you want to see what the new lines of bikes and accessories will be, you want to attend this convention.
JR N. and I have ridden this and will be there this year as well. Its a well planned and supported event. I was thinking that Bike Forum poster might gather for breakfast prior to the ride. Let me know if there is some interest.
