    Oh this. Easy answer. Produce twice the trash and require triple security. Nothing personal, just business

    Gave up on bike shows a few years back.

    Rip off entry prices, plus the travel costs.

    The days of bargains have gone...can buy anything much cheaper on the web.

    As such we are treated as well off peeps and charged accordingly.
    Boycott the event and prices will fall, but the poseurs will still pay cos they have to have NEW bikes.
    Pretty near the mark
    One more and you get a big kiss

    Must admit I've never been as I've always thought it was overpriced and would be much better in Spring when people are digging their bikes out, but I guess they are aiming it at people who are thinking of which bike to buy next season.

    As for new bikes, I did once, it was a Tiger 800 new and felt great. Sitting on a spanking new bike and riding off without wondering what the last owner might have done with the thing is a nice feeling. A couple of weeks of road muck later and it's no different to if you had bought it from a couple of years old off someone who looked after it.

    That said, I'd never knock someone for buying new, if no-one bought new then where do you think the second hand bikes would come from?
