    Default Any good deals at the Outdoor Rec Show?

    Just wondering what people are thinking about the show. I won't be able to make it until late tomorrow and was wondering if I should even bother.

    I was there today. If you're in the market for a new machine there are some good deals, especially on carry-overs.

    6th Ave Outfitters has most of their winter gear at 1/2 off.

    I thought the show was disappointing. The big four brands were on display, but hardly any aftermarket or OEM accessory bargains. We have a new sled due in any day and were in the mood to buy a bunch of accessories and gear. Got the wife a new helmet and some slidekicks scratchers and that was about it. Maybe everyone is waiting for the Oxygen and Octane show at the new convention center in a few weeks???

    Default got some deals

    I got a few deals on KLIM fro both matrita and AKM&D. It was sort of disappointing, but I got some deals so it was ok for me!

    I wound up going. Thought it was OK. I picked up a scabbard for the sled. Sure wish someone would make a 4-stroke mountain machine beside yamaha. Not that I have anything against yamaha, I would just like a little more selection.

    Disappointed. The Winter Rec show has turned into the dealers flea market. I swear I have seen the same sleds there every year. Call me picky but if you put a dirty sled on your floor and don't even try to clean it up, why would I buy a sled that looks used. It looks like they store them outside all summer and take them straight from storage to the show with out so much as a rag. I agree the organizers should try courting some aftermarket suppliers to come to the show.
