2017 Motorcycle Super Show (Toronto) Winter test WTF?

Was lined up at noon to sit on some Gazukis or Yamis but no 300's on the floor except 2 Kawi's who did have the nicest booth besides Honda. There was a Duke 390 and just about every other full size bike with Chopper Grandpas rolling around also DOG the Bounty hunter and Wife lol. This winter test looks a little silly with the front and back snowflakes. We only get 7 months riding here anyways why are they trying to rub it in??
Got some Icon Tarmac2 boots for $150 and Snakeskin Techspec 3-piece Tank pad for $50 so I had fun with my girl.

I was thinking of flying up for the Springshow 2017 March 25/26 at the International Centre. Have you been to that one? Worth attending?

Yeah, I gotta say, I don't really like it. Even without the lame snowflakes.

To date, I like the plain colors the best, plain white or plain green. They just look clean and elegant. I hate SE graphics, or basically anything that's a decal.

The spring show is at the same building but i think not as big because no used bikes there. I will probably go to that one also. It's at the same place near the Airport. There is a 3 day one mid Feb. loos like it will be alright. Here is the link

I actually really like the Winter Test, though the green lined rims look a bit odd.

Early February We get the Progressive Insurance Motorcycle show In Chicago. I'll be going to that. The one bike I really want to check out is the BMW G310GS mini ADV.

I must note the Winter test does have 150 Rear tires on the back i took some more pics friday @ the Toronto Motorcycle Show
Yammi had 2 300's there no Suzuki 250 or honda 300. BMW had a G310R there also. Kawi Canada gave away a 2016 Ninja KRT to a woman so i brought the wife again so she could enter lol. Bought an Icon Sanctuary Jacket from GP Bikes on sale. One more show in march to go to.

Not going to lie...i don't like the colors they chose this year. For some reason they messed up the nose of the bike and put that black fairing instead of the one that matches the bike which irks me.

They should have went with an Orange from the Ninja 650 or that cool White metallic on this years zx6r and zx10r.

Now those would be sweet options....
