2012 MCN Excel Show Poor

Well I have to say it was a poor show from my point of view, and i'll tell you why. Apart from the fact that I travelled from the Channel Islands to see the latest bike for me, it also cost £50 on the door for me and my wife to get in, which, i thought was daylight robbery!! The booming market at the moment is the adventure bike market which for me, could of been better represented, For a start, no Honda Crosstourer, Excuse from the desk at Honda was, only one in europe and we're not top of the priority list, Portugal was where it was. They normally have 20 or so bikes on a launch don't they, and they can't spare one for our London show, how short sighted is that. Thousands of people to try it out and no bike. Yamaha could only manage one colour for the Super Tenere. Kawasaki had only one colour in each Versys, and Triumph were short of a colour with their Explorer too. Considering both Triumph and Kawasaki are trying to break into this sector, you would of thought that they would make the bigger effort. They were both short of other models too.Thank god for BMW who represented their brand well. No models missing and great representation of the Adv Bike sector. Ducati were there with the MS both in new colour and the fabulous Pikes Peak version. No Piaggio Group again!! No MV again or Benelli!! to name but a few missing. Surely they could of clubbed together to afford half a pitch....It's a bike show and with that, you should be given the option to view and pay for the other show attractions and not be forced to incure the charges whether you like it or not...I will not be going again unless it's as good if not better than the NEC. After all it is the capital of the country!!
