    I only heard about the event a week back, not sure they advertised it well enough.
    I'll say the IBW organizers tried their best to sell the event.

    It got media coverage in Auto publications / TV Auto shows / Lifestyle TV Channels.. have promoted on Facebook quite aggressively.. tied up with forms like xBhp (a bit too late though). According to me, they the marketing guys did their best. The challenge would now be to promote the event "post" the event.. as a success, so that there can be a 2014 version too.

    But yes, Indians are Value For Money junkies.. and this is probably where they got it a bit wrong. Would love to hear from the guys who attended the event.. they might be having a good time for their money.

    missed it by a whisker!!

    will be there next year for sure!

    I wonder if the organisers can come up with a better venue than goa (sounds stupid - right?!?!) as most of the bikers would have found the distance a bit too much to ride all the way!!
    though i do not know any better location for unwinding - but i am sure some place can be identified which is bit more central for all the riders to come down!!

    wherever it is - I would be there the next time - with or without my ride!!

    A good effort to promote biking - kudos to the organisers!!
    Biking is a religion, not a hobby!!
