Yup!

BTW- The Progressive coupon code PRG8NYE still works. Just bought my tickets for tomorrow for $12 + $1 service charge- $13 in total.

Looking to see the Shoei Neotech vs. Nolan Vs. Shuberth.

Lets face it, there are 6 of them for every one of us. Hopefully, Starbucks will have a booth right next to Touratech so you can sip a half-caff, carmel gluten-free soy latté while you peruse the back-ordered farkles.

That's good news. First time here, and I need a fog-free nose piece and a pair of 25MM cheek pads for my new(est) helmet.

Oh man, that shit suks. Seems the more they merge, the crappier they get. Conti used to be one of my favorites, Delta, too. It's almost got to the point that Southwest is my favorite airline.

The colder the better, it'll keep the Harleys and crotch rockets off the streets, more room for me to park.

Last year all the hardcore riders wore short sleeve shirts and vests (colors) ..... really, I saw them get off the bus in front of the Javitz center

We make a lot of fun but you know what? When I'm traveling and I'm more than ten miles from any city limit, I see ten Harleys for ever one of every other manufacturer combined. Last year on my trip from Utah to NYC, I ran into one guy on a GS, saw maybe 10 non-cruisers, out of hundreds of motorcycles.

That's because the GS's are traveling around the world and Harleys need to stay in the country in case they break down....

Plus the dual sport bikes are not riding on main "boring" roads, so you wouldn't see them.

Went to the show today. I would say it was pretty good and worth attending, definitely the best show in the past 3 years.

every manufacturer was there including Indian and KTM - even got to meet mike Wolfe from American Pickers, Paul Yaffe and a few other big name.

Small vendors

Please support some of the small vendors at the show. They are what make the show interesting. One little gadget goes along way for their bottom line. I have no dog in this race, but picture a MC show without them. Just sayin'.
