Anyone know if Royal Enfield will have a display at the Dallas TX show next week?

Nope  :-\  Not even one in the parking lot ???   Show was interesting in who was not there.  No BMW, Chinese,  Vespa, or Guzzi, and on and on...

No Triumph, either.  What's the point of going?  Very disappointing.
I wonder if I'll ever see a UCE?

I can't speak for the others, but Triumph dropped out from those shows several years ago. They were spending well north of a million dollars and decided that they could use it elsewhere. These IMS shows are ungodly expensive.
We think we will be at the NY, Chicago, Minneapolis, Long Beach and at least one other show.

It's a tough call that ties in with the advertising thing.  When times get skinny, people tend to advertise less but that's the time they should.

We went through that as a lighting business (Curse The Darkness)- the shows got way too expensive, yet that's how galleries see your stuff.

How about Greenville SC, maybe you could rope R & D into helping with staffing.

I bet we could get Cabo over for a day, maybe even Uncle Ernie and Blue Ridge....never mind maybe you should stay up north!  ;)
