    I attended the Northern California Progressive International motorcycle show at Sears Point Raceway today. Guess what? Not a BMW display in sight. Other than the ones in the parking lot, of course. Attached are a few of the photos that I took today showing some of the displays that I found interesting.

    Richard, last week Irv Seavers in Orange had the test fleet truck at his dealership. Maybe they feel they have enough of a captive audience to not attend a multi manufacturer event. i saw the new 40th Anniversary model and ended up buying one. Funny how a paint job can catch your interest.

    Colors are an attention getter,,. Which model did you decide on and how was the pricing?
    Not many discounts in these parts?

    Unfortunately my flip phone doesn't have me taking pictures I know what to do with.
    Lag, I got the F750GS 40th anniversary Bumble Bee version. Black and yellow like my 1989 R100GS, the original Bumble Bee.

    I always liked the Bumble Bee color scheme.

    Here's the line up,,,F8GS F8GSA F7GS,,,,,the 700 looks great in 40th Anniversary colors, I had a look at the 1200, they have a 40th anniversary demo which I might take for a ride?
    Correction,,, Sorry "I had a look at the 1200",,,,its actually a 1250 40ths demo only model which is not currently for sale, if you want any of these bikes you need to order them, at least from our dealers in Vancouver,.?

    Here is a link to a Motorcycle.com review of the 2021 Northern California International Motorcycle Show. The event is described as being "intimate" and the attendance was said to be disappointing. The author talked about a few of the attendees and not about any new motorcycles. Apparently the vendors didn't do much vending, although the test rides were well attended: https://www.motorcycle.com/events/20...sonoma-raceway

    Here are two YouTube videos published by a longtime electric motorcycle rider of the two test rides that he took at the 2021 Northern California Motorcycle Show that was held at the Sears Point Raceway, north of San Francisco last weekend.

    The first one is of his ride on the new Zero FXE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sbew-eR1YMw

    And this longer one is of his ride on a new LiveWire One: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_83m3BeshUQ

    I attended the IMS in Atlanta several years in a row many years ago. Realized it was not for me when they replaced the trials exhibition with kids riding "steel ball of death".

    Fortunately, no Ball of Death at this IMS.
