no, just bring a wrench so you can put the nuts back onto the wheels when they fall off

+1. it was good like 4 years ago but now it just sucks, primarily due to the lack of attractive females trying to sell me stuff.

Yeah they need to have models like at CES or the international car show.

Really my biggest complaint is lack of after market vendors. They all go to the dealer show in Indy around that time. As for the bikes, they pretty much can be seen at the dealer before the show. I just go to hang with friends.

Oh I love that. I will bring the most obnoxious stroller to the most inappropriate places and be the biggest jag. I do not give an inch.


Let me see an adult riding a bike on a sidewalk while I have the stroller and dog and down they go.

That's my main reason to go! Thanks for the habit, ya bastard!

It'll be cool to see the bikes and whatnot, but its really just a social event. I'm more looking forward to seeing a buncha cool people I haven't seen since the track/riding season ended. It's like Strat's, only with more eye candy around.

Rick, are you having another IMS party? That was a great time last year.
