Anyone ever been to the London bike show? Worth going to? Better than the Birmingham show?

Been for the last couple of years and going again this February.    Great show, very modern venue - good  parking ( free for Bikes ) - and easy location to get to.   Also done Birmingham , this is better,  ...... :028:

London would be a stretch for me, but I'm going to the International Motorcycle show in Cleveland next weekend. The rumor is that Triumph will not be showing because of the Reborn Tour events with the new Bonneville line.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

I go every year for the last ten years.  I love it but I think Birmingham is better.   All the usual manufacturers and traders are at London and you might get a coffee off the Triumph stand.    I'll be going again this year, even though I don't have any money to buy anything.  Just nice being able to stroll round and say hi to a few folks I know.

Maybe bump into you if you decide to go.   It would be nice if the members of this forum were able to meet up and have a chat.   :821:

Sunday for me , usually get the better `deals' on the `last day' of the Show, save the sellers taking their goods back to Dealerships  ( I hope  :084: )
