I hate to hear that you felt that way.

Judging a bike show is tough. There are always going to be more folks disappointed then there are happy with the results. We do labor over each choice. Your critique has given me an idea. Maybe we could delegate some of the responsibility. I'll talk to my guys. Maybe Jenn and E could organize a DTT committee to judge the Japanese. Maybe get the fellas at R&P to judge the American, and so on. Hmmm

We do know a few things about Japanese bikes. (I'll admit, some of our judges may be drunk at the time) Most of us own at least one Japanese bike. Though we are unapologeticly a vintage British club that hosts the show. But that is not to say that we don't love Jap bikes, Italian bikes, German bikes too. And I guess some Harley's are OK . :)We try to make the event open to everyone.

As I recall the color discussion was about which one of the two nice H2's that we liked.

Always glad to hear feedback. Hope you'll come out to see if we made improvements. Thanks.

Hey, come find me at the show . I'll be the tall guy in the registration tent. I'll buy you a beer!
Cheers, Daniel

If I remember correctly, the Best in Show award went to an XS chopper last year (or maybe the year before). In any event, I haven't felt slighted.

I won't even have to use vacation time to make it this year. I'll be there! Maybe it won't rain on us this year.

Looking forward to coming. It has become an annual tradition. Some friends and I get together at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground and ride across the mountain for the show.

I think we are going to try to attend. I-85 is closed, so we will have to work our way around to get there. We'll do this by car, no bike riding for a while both of us are gimping around. Looks like a fun show and who can say no to a brewery!

Probably not. It will be a fast trip up and back to ATL this time. We are going to be in Arkansas all next week, so we will likely be road weary by the 29th. LOL!
