I never would have imagined the show would have grown to the size it has in such a short time. The attention we have gotten, good and bad has been overwhelming to say the least. The show has so many good things associated with it and has done a lot for those who put in the effort to get something from it and we wish success to all that have involved.
The thing I like most about the show is it's openness. We have always wanted involvement by those who wanted to get involved and have tried to reach out to as many people as possible and include them in what we are trying to do...and that is put on the best motorcycle show we can in a fun, friendly environment.
We have made mistakes along the way..a lot of mistakes but we do try to improve on them and get better each time. The extremely difficult part on improving each year is the show keeps growing bigger with so many new elements & challenges...we fix 5 problems and 10 more arise. This year we are doing what needs to be done to handle a show this large and that is get some serious help. 2 guys and a handful of friends can not handle the amount of people that roll through those gates . I would love to go back to the days BF 2... free beer and food, less stress and pressure unfortunately those times are behind us.
This year we have bitten off the biggest, scariest, most stressful challenge to date...THE 2 DAY SHOW. This is something you all have asked for and we will attempt. The amount of work, costs, liability and stress that goes into the show for one day has now doubled and we are feeling it... so I am sure we will experience some failures along the way.
Having said all that we will do this show and do it the very best we can. The thing I would like to say and hopefully it hits home with the folks reading this is...this is a bike show and it's suppose to be fun. It's suppose to relieve stress not create it. So please take it for what it's worth. The who's invited who's not, the rumors, gossip, drama and the conflicts are not important. It's about the love of motorcycles and people getting together to enjoy them...that's it. So please come to the show, see some neat motorcycles, leave your problems at the gate, see your friends and have fun. If the show is not right for you and you don't want to come that's ok too.
