I'm leaving the biker expo there's nothing for sale there that has to do with bikes I'm highly off. We got our money back but not our time. So be warned it sucks. If you want a hot tub candles or bikinis it's the place to be.

I think trooper posted in the other thread that they didn't actually get the $10 rate when they went, unless I misunderstood.

Yet, all the people who have booths at the expo are allowed to talk about being there even if they aren't sponsors.

Same feelings here. Great if you wanted hot tub, non stick fry pan, cheap sun glasses, beef jerky, $7.50 beer, or kitchen cutlery (i was sent back to put pocket knife in bike after ticket line after supervisor spotted the clip WTF!!! They were selling hunting knifes in there for christ sake!). Took me less than an hour to walk the meager offerings. Save your $$$$ not worth the effort.

In fairness you forgot the magic plastic broom, RV Homes, Happy Feet insoles, magic balance bracelets, diet margaritas, bubble guns, swing chairs, cheap jewelry, watches, stuffed teddy bears, dogs, turtles, home security systems, retail electric providers.... at this point it is easier to just list the few bike related things they had. They should have called it South Texas Flea Market and expo.

. Well glad I saw this b4 going, but what about the schedule of events listed on the website: http://www.sotxbikerjam.com/index.php/events did none of this happen? Or was it really just total BS?

I was there maybe an hour. I'm not shure about the will call ticket the reliant guy had tickets scanned out what ever that means and then he gave us our money back. Yamaha was demoing there bikes which I'm highly about because I want to ride the new fz8 but you had to have helmet and pants. I had pants went there to buy a helmet but none were for sale so I didn't get to ride it.
