Jan. 3-5 at Suburban Showplace, Novi
http://www.motorcycleshows.com/

I'm off that weekend....I will probably go, being that I missed last years...


Insert:

How about Sunday Jan 5th.

Breakfast @ 0900 @ Novi Coney Island (http://www.yelp.com/biz/novi-coney-island-novi)
We'll head to the show around 1000 (time they open)

When we finish (usually about 2 hours) We will hit up Bar Louie (http://www.yelp.com/biz/bar-louie-novi) around 1pm, for lunch and a drink.



Cool with everybody?

Please give a slight head count for breakfast at least... bar headcount can be figured out at the show.

I'm sure I will be there, If I'm not in Florida. Advance tickets are $12 plus parking, Any wonder why these shows are dying off a bit more every year. Lots of new bikes to see, if the manufactures are willing to pay the crazy space rental fees. I guess its the only game in town.

Best time to do that show, is when the doors open Sundaymorning. There are less people and some of the vendors will offer a discount.The watering holes in that area are welcoming by mid afternoon also.
Just a thought
