IMS Shopping

In the past i have past up some good products at the IMS show. I either didnt know about them or had no experience with the products. I have found out that there are some good things to grab while there, items such as antifog and other things that local moto dealers dont stock.

What do you recomend buying while there?

Do a little research on what you are in the market for and compare prices. Don't forget to figure in the cash you'll save on shipping costs by purchasing at the show too.
I got a very good deal on an HJC off road helmet a couple of years ago, and a Triumph jacket last year. There are a several booths that have good deals on helmets, jackets, boots, gloves and even off the rack leathers. Watch for and ask about show specials.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

I'll probably be looking for some leather cleaner...i have heard of some you can just use in a washing machine. I'll have to do a bit of research and see what it was. Also probably looking for a good set of track gloves...maybe last years model of Held phantoms? wonder if anyone brings them to the show, or they just carry mostly the Joe Rocket A* and ICON stuff. Oh well its always fun to go and sit on the new bikes...I just go Friday b4 the bikes are missing parts
