I don't believe there are any demo rides on Friday evening - only Sat. and Sun.

Free motorcycle parking again this year.

this from the official website. Not sure if Houston is a "certain location".

Licensed motorcyclists who bring their own riding gear (including a helmet) can test ride some of the newest street bikes on the market today at select Cycle World International Motorcycle Shows. The manufacturer-sponsored Demo Rides are typically held on Saturday and Sunday during daylight hours as weather permits with special Friday Demo Rides available at certain locations.

We are going Sunday. Saturday is Supermoto.

We went last year and it was great. It is a one-stop shop for touching, test-sitting, looking at any bike you can think of. I'd definitely recommend it!

We missed the demos because we didn't bring gear and the lines were long. Demos aren't an option for me this year anyways but if I could, I'd do at least one.

AZ slide, did they show off the new Ninja 250?
