Stopped at a great pizza place across from Hayfield High school and shared a medium pizza. I wanted to see the Indian Motorcycles. Pieces of art deco. They feel lighter then the HDs. Just say in. Going to piss people off next week. Anyway the Honda and BMW areas were packed. Overall less crowded than two years ago on Saturday. Easier to take pictures and study the motorcycles. The show was smaller. I got to try on helmets which was my main goal. Coleman Powersports is discounting Shoei helmets. They did not have the color I wanted. The triumph area and some real nice looking custom bikes.

I was at Mortons today. RF1100s were marked at $319. They are usually willing to order any size/color you desire.

I was at Morton's at 1600 as everyone was leaving. For some reason this is the second time I thought they closed at 1700 on Saturday. We really went there for my son to try on the used Rivet jacket on the sale rack.

It could have been flown in from a dry state lime Arizona. I did not think to ask. Did you see the SE model with the red frame? Smaller gas tank. They still has a nice setup.

Just heard about that one today. Broken back and a few other pieces.
The show in Philly was awesome to watch. Well worth the cost and travel.
We had seats 7 rows up from the arena floor, because of the safety zone, we were he third row of people.

(the picture was taken from our seats)

The cool part of the trip was meeting a group of Freestyle MX riders before the show. We went to Dave & Busters for lunch before the show. BreeAnna noticed a group of younger guys all dressed in "the right clothes" as she put it. So the girls and I went over and said hi and asked them if they were part of Nitro Circus. They were not in the show but good friends of Travis' and were part of a group called Adrenalyn Junkies. Great bunch of guys, they showed the girls a bunch of pictures and listened to Cheyenne tell them how she raced and crashed on her last "big air". We talked to them for about 20 minutes. Tucker (the ring leader) gladly signed Cheyenne's Nitro Circus shirt for her.
