Of particular interest to us fellow R5 enthusiasts is that this year the show is honoring the Yamaha 2-stroke twins: R5s, DS7s and RDs. Usually this means a lot of these bikes showing up at the show and an image of the bike on the show t-shirt.

Wish I could be going... but since I'm on the wrong coast, someone local will have to go and snap some pics for the site!
