I got a great deal on a helmet, all Shoei was 30% off. And they had all models. I even talked them down a bit lower on a Qwest and extra shield. $350 out the door.

I got a medium black RF1000 in great shape I will sell you for $100 and I am right around the corner. Just put new cheek pads in a couple months ago!

I went Sat am. The 710 freeway was fooked with construction, took 1/2 hour for the last 5 miles (caging it, not feeling good).

The show seemed to be half the square footage as previous and there seemed to be three times as many people. When I got there at 10:30 they were parking cars in the garage for the theater as both convention center garages were full.

We stayed about 45 minutes and got the f*&k out. $40 dollars for parking and 2 admissions. Not worth it.

I agree about the reps not knowing their product. The Ural Yamal had some nice hand guards on it that I want for mine. When I asked the rep if they were a Ural part or aftermarket, he had no clue.

Right before we leave, we watch the drift show at Redbull Arena. Here is a short video if you are curious.
I dont know why Cami thinks I can do all these stunts and keep asking me to teach her.
I think I misled her about my biking talent...




Here is a great video by the same duo. This is sick!!!

I've been going to the show for at least 5 years....totally underwhelmed this year. The Ducati girls are always stunning, but the displays and merchandise was really limited. Probably skip it next year
