Went to the expo in Brissy weekend before last. HD were there this year; saw the two new ST rockers- still prefer the new Dyna fatbob though. The two sportys were attracting a lot of attention too. Of the other makes, I really liked the new Triumph Street Triple (priced same as the bonny!) and the Ducati. Other than the bikes though, not much else new in terms of vendors; not sure it is worth the entry price but for me it was part of an enjoyable day out.
Only downer was for some folk we were talking to on the way out; the parking inspectors gave out lots of tickets to bikes parked in front of the convention centre spoiling the day out for a number of people who probably won't return to a future expo now.
