International Motor Cycle Show

Hello all,

I know the International motorcycle show makes it's way around the country each year. I don't know what the schedule is. I was wondering if anyone knows when it comes to Cleveland Ohio. I thought it might be this weekend or next.

Thanks

Can anyone tell me why BMW is not going to be at the Cleveland Show?

Cleveland

You know I went to that show a few years ago and thought it was pretty lame. It had a bunch of Jap bikes and a few local dealers and a whole lot of cheap leather vendors. If they can't bring in the top of the line companies why have it. As I am thinking it was more like a swap meet. Being that BMW won't be there I guess I should stay home. There is however a nice BMW shop in Auroa Ohio, by where Sea World once was. I was there a few months back and it was worth the trip. It has only been open for a few months.

What makes you think they won't be there?

My son and I have gone to the Cleveland show every year for the last ten or so,
BMW has been there every time with a very large display. Last year for example,
they had TWO of the not yet released at the time K12S' on display.

It's a good show.

Well for one we are hearing that it conflicts with BMW"s schedule for another event. Second they do not appear on the Exhibitor List for Cleveland, but that list has not been updated for any information.

I was hoping someone had more substantial information than the rumor mill here.

BMW shows on the Cleveland floor plan (click here).

Two weirdisms emerged from looking into this ....

1- Cycle World is NOT listed as being at Daytona for Bike Week in March !!

2- BMW Events doesn't list a single event for 2006. Shame on them.

CABNFVR,

Yes I see BMW on the floor plan also. Did you notice that Triumph is missing? The info we have is from a local dealer who is stating that no one from BMW has contacted them to help out at the booth.
