definitely not going this year. let me know if it is improved over the last couple of years. I got an email today they are doing the indy motogp experience at the bike show. Which would be cool if I had never been to indy but I built that fucking town and am solely responsible for motogp coming back to indy (a regular legend in my own mind) so um no it's not going to get me to go.

If in fact we get the rain we'd need to wash the salt off on Tuesday, its gonna be mighty chilly to ride to this thing on Saturday.

I have to say there's an appalling amount of salt on the road, I can see salt clouds as people drive. So we'd need a decent amount of rain.

Sorry to hear Dave.

I am with you on the salt aspect Kosher... it's almost like a fog of salt dust as people drive. Disgusting!

Mudpuppy
01-25-2013, 10:07 AM
Ok Moe I might see you at the show but we are NOT hooking up. Maybe you can hook up with Chris. He's down from brownstown and I am not talking the city. More like the truck stop.

It is going to rain on Tuesday so that should clear the salt for you. I am caging it. Riding season, for me, doesn't start until March 1.

Just got back from the show. Friday night was perfect very few people there. The bike show had some nice bikes in it and some stupid ones including that ugly ass yellow street glide. The manufacturers did there usual and of course they had a stunt show.

I was really disappointed in the new gold wing. The front is nice but the back end is hideous. Way to wide looks like the trunk of a boss hoss trike. The cb1100 was sexy and the factory rep said they are starting demo rides in march. Ended up picking up some more blaze anti fog and some royal blue was/polish that its supposed to be good on the denim paint. One vendor tried to scam the girl into paying 50 bucks for some global vision glasses and he got pissed when i said we will get them from Don. Also signed up for a biker road side assistance thing similar to what chris was trying to do here.

Over all had a great time with the girlfriend and grandpa. She is still dead set on a vrod muscle. Have fun tomorrow guys wish i could go with you.
