About a 50 mile trip to Boston to expo center for the 2007 N.E. motorcycle show. Just got off rt 24 to route 3 in boston doing my norm of 80 MPH and traffic is normal in the bean town. This women has been folowing me for about 3 mile so close I thought she want to read my speedometer because her was broken or something. Thing like this doesn't bother me but today it did. I wave at her to get off my ass. But she just got closer, so close that all I could see is just her windsheild. I slowly applied my brake ( I mean slowly) she step on her hard and then started honking her horn and showing me her age with one finger. To my right there was traffic and in front of me there was more traffic which I keep about 8 car lenghts (1 car lenght per 10 MPH). I can't see why people ride on other rear end in heavy traffic does it make traffic go faster? 15 years ago I was in an accident and I rear ended some one and since then I keep my distance from the car in the front.
Well back to the show. I went by myself since I don't have any friends that have bikes. Well it was a waste of $10 of gas. A waste of $12 to park. A rip off of $15 to get in and and a real rip off for 1 hot dog and a coke of $5. $42 to see a bunch of vendors that just follow bike shows around and sell JUNK.
The 4 Metric bikes were there with small amounts of bikes. BMW, truimp, Boss Hog showed some of there goodies. Victory had the most bikes on display.
HD must of felt bad for there striking workers because there were a NO SHOW at the SHOW. Some guys trying to sell some used HD for new bike prices.
Also there was a new motorcycle (American ) Ridley. What a peice of JUNK with a price tag of $15000. 750CC with auto trany.
Lots of custom bike with a price tag of $25,000 that you couldn't ride for more that 5 miles.
Gee for $42 I could of bought something for my bike and would of been happier.
