I rode the versys 650, z900, z900 cafe, and 650r

ya wasn't too crowded, I basically test rode bikes back to back for 2 hours

route did kinda suck (if they went farther south they could have had some open stretches in more industrial areas), but I heard they will be at Del Amo orange county in a week or two...route there should be better

I miss the olden days at the IMS show when we got to get on the fwy or over to san pedro. those were good routes.  basically these city rides I can just get a basic idea of if the seating position is ok when in traffic :)

When Aprilia led us onto the freeway at 110 mph on their demo pretty ruined all other demos for me.

Hope they do have a demo day in the OC location. I can be more frustrated about bikes I can't afford. Regarding your link, thtanner, if you ever get out to the Palm Springs Air Museum, hang out with the dude who stewards the B-17 and talks about it. He worked for Boeing for several years and has lots of cool Tex Johnston stories, particularly about the 707 barrel roll.

I went Sunday at about 11, slots were filled for the Z900RS and the Versys til 1:30, it didn't help that they took an hour and half lunch break.  So basically 10-4 was more like 10-2:30, but hearing that the route was crap, I feel a re-do is in store if they hit OC.

As far as demo rides go, the KTM demo ride was excellent, it went from Foothill Ranch past Cook's Corner and up Live Oak Canyon, and the ride leaders went at a spirited pace.  That is when I learned TKC 80's can grip when leaned over and I still am considering a 1090 Adventure R as my next ride...

Every day is ride to work day!

Wish I could make it but I'll be up here where somebody ordered another 4" of snow for Saturday.  On the KTM demo I was stuck behind a noob while trying to evaluate a Super Duke, pissed of the ride leaders when I passed his ass. Did get to ride 3 KTM's that day so it wasn't all bad.

The roads were cleared and rideable save for a little salt the day after the snow  but couldn't get a bike out of the complex down to the road safely.  :(
