Review from Big_Al

Friday night crowd is light, especially when show started at 4 PM. Easy to get around. See all exhibits, talk to vendors. Enjoyed show. Picked up valuable information. Bought some speciality products at "show" prices.

Review from Jerome Watts

It was a great venue. I've been going the last 8 years but it seems it's getting smaller every year such as less motorcycle related vendors . Over all it was great!

Looking forward to next year.

Review from Pete J Valletutti

It was a good show. I expected many more custom bikes for an "International" Show. But the few that were there were pretty nice.
