Hard to believe that St Patrick's Day 2013 is over, and the International Spring Motorcycle Show is also over for another year. This show was, like past Spring Shows, a very upbeat event. Attendees were all eager to check out deals and see the lastest and greatest offerings from local dealerships and major motorcycle manufacturers, and to get the scoop on the latest info on all other products and services that are integral to the motorcycle community of Ontario.
Motorcycle riders love to buy things related to their motorcycle interest. New leathers look, feel, and smell fantastic when you buy them. New chrome for your bike, shiny new helmets, all of these things give you a tangible bang for your buck.
Motorcycle insurance, on the other hand, is certainly a large amount of money that comes due every year, but it's not terribly attractive in a tactile sense. It is, however, extremely important in all of its details, so when you get your renewal every year it's very important to review what you're getting and what you might need to revise for your current circumstances.

There is a palpable sense of urgency (and excitement) to the preparations of show attendees who know that they need to get those new leathers or that new helmet - or that new motorcycle - now, because riding conditions could switch to Spring mode any day. This show is the last best opportunity to take advantage of great deals on everything related to motorcycling under one big roof before the rubber hits the road.
