First Toronto Bike Show

The show went according to plan. We got there before opening and scored parking in the Convention Centre underground lot.

The show is pretty flashy. Our main gaol was to check out potential bikes for Heather and Tom. The criteria were about 750 cc, liquid cooled and shaft driven. After checking what was available and comparing prices, they settled on the 800cc Suzuki boulevard SE, complete with windshield, floorboards, saddlebag and backrest. I expect they will do well with these.

After the show we headed up to Radioworld on Steeles to return the faulty Zumo motorcycle mount. They took a mount out of a new box and gave it to me, a move I greatly appreciated. Interestingly, RW had a booth at the show where they were selling Zumo's for $699 on a show special. I paid $879 in June. Such is the world of technology.

From there, we started back to Cambridge, stopping for supper along the way. All in all, it was a nice day.
