Eat before you go or eat at one of the restaurants outside the convention center. Expensive.

Great variety of motorcycles and accessories to peruse! Sunday was less crowded and we had the chance to really take it all in. The only down side is that it was nearly impossible to find a good viewing spot for the stunt show.

Consistently good--something for everyone, from new bikes to chromey show pieces and antiques, pretty good roster of vendors. I recommend it.
