IMS at Minneapolis Convention Center

9 posts in this topic

Any one else plan to go to the International Motorcycle Show this weekend? I plan to be there most of the day Saturday for sure and possibly Sunday. I will probably be hanging around the J&J Powersports booth. It will be next to the Star booth from what I am told. I am going to try to remember to wear my white Legion Commander hat so if ya see me there stop and say hey! Sounds like it will be a blast! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Wife, youngest son and his wife, and I will be there Saturday around 10:30 AM. Hoping to see the new Honda Fury and do some idea shopping for our next ATV.

Just got a new Fulmer M2 helmet $89, where the full chin guard and visor can unlatched and moved up. This is real nice for people who wear glasses and a helmet. You can put on and take off the helmet with your glasses on.

Went up today for about 4 hrs. it was good, but not as big as I thought that it would be? It was my first time and I guess i was expecting more, but what there was was good. Lots of stuff, and I guy can get many ideas to spend alot of money!!! Anyone see that bike that Victory unvailed? Wow what an ugly bike!!! Just my thoughts anyhow!!! Saw the trials guy with his bike that was cool!! Got some chaps, that I have needed for a few years!!! Also got some "zookes" for the glasses and stuff, it seemed ok so I got it. Got to look and sit on alot of the new models and that is always nice!!! I will go again!!!

I was really disapointed. I went a few years back and it was much bigger with lots of dealers there. Also lots of customs, from occ, bourget, big dog, etc. This year it barely filled two sections of the Convention Center. I was impressed with yamaha vmax and also the fury. Yup, that new victory was uuuuuuggggly. The rest of their line up is sharp though.

I suppose with the bottom falling out of the custom chopper market there is no need for the big guys(OCC, Big dawg, ect) to be there. Yes I will agree the rest of the Victory line is sweet!!!

I had a great time. I actually thought there would more leather dealers, chrome accessory dealers and other apparel. The Mrs and I did find a couple of leather jackets though. I can't wait for summer!

We had a great time there as well. I finally found a vest to sew all my Star Touring & Riding patches on. I still have to find one more vest for all the Patriot Guard patches and missions. Seemed fairly well made and not very expensive I thought. I did notice that the beer there was about as expensive as it is at a Twins game! Holy Cow! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
