It sucked hard last year. It was really boring and seemed smaller than normal. There where a lot of manufacturers not there I thought would of been and a whole bunch of scooters.

I wish they'd do it in the summer and do some rides. Do the show in Michigan in the summer and the shows in like California in the winter I say.

On that note, I'll probably end up going. lmao

Me too... It's about a 6 minute drive from my house... so I will most likely check it out.

Might be a good place for us all to get together for dinner or something.

FUCK ROCK FINACIAL!

I quit going after the first year at Rock. Thought maybe when they moved it would get better. NOPE.

Refuse to go back.

Red Hot and Blue was an awesome place to eat but they closed up their Novi location. :(

There are tons of places around there Todd. A huge mall and a bunch of huge outdoor malls within a mile of each other. Usually when my dad and I go to the show we eat at Red Robin or something like that.

Yup, what Bob said. From Dennys to Boston Market and Pei Wei. Anyone up for anything special?

I was thinking somewhere nice, where we can get a nice size table, drink a few cocktails, and eat some steak!

Berto
10-23-2009, 12:08 AM
Not steak, but bonefish is in that area. Good food. Outback steakhouse is also about 5 mins away. A little less pricey and classy but if people want meat!!!

I've been to and will go to almost any k these places. Your call.

I have to agree, since the move from Cobo it just ain't the same. And I really am not fond of the Rock, that said and it being the first of the year I expect to be there.

Most places won't take reservations any more anyway. We had a big group at Olive Garden the other night and they would not take a reservation or even call ahead. It sucked. Had to wait an hour for that junk.

went to the show today and had a an ok time. it was my first time there but i see how going once would get old. the cool thing was the ducati stunt team performed and went good but the best part of the show was when he wrecked(they put pop and syrup on the floor to get traction which i found interesting). the really cool thing was that Angie from full throttle saloon was there and i went to go get a pic and my F-ing camera died. so i settled for a tshirt and a hug. there were a few cool bikes and progressive had some SPS builds there and i liked the new intercepter from honda.

anyways heres a few pics from the day

went to the show Fri. what a waste of time and money, $5 to park. (5 dollars for parking at every event there must generate enough money to pay for the building ten fold). $15 tickets and you can see what you can see at any motorcycle dealership for free is a waste and will never go again.

That happened to me at the Detroit Grand Prix. We had pit passes and after one of the LeMans races we were walking around the pits. I saw Marco Andretti and was going to get my pic taken with him. Asked him for a pic, he stood next to me, Todd (Zamochit) pointed his camera and said, "My battery just died." Marco jumped on a scooter and road off. LMAO On another note, I found my pics from that day while cleaning the office yesterday from the disposable camera because I forgot my camera at home.

I went on Friday. The show sux. The wifey decided to go with me - nearly floored me that she was interested.

I tried to buy the discounted tix on the Progressive website but it was a hassle and they are NOT $10 as advertised. So for me/wife it was $35 (2 tix plus $5 parking) for one boring-ass show. No BMW or Triumph displays. I went out of habit and to lessen some cabin fever and bike jonesin'.

My advice? Don't waste your money.

I went twice at Cobo. Said I wouldn't go back. But the following year they moved it to Rock. So I went again. NO MORE. Same lame crappy shit. Said no more international cycle world shows. Check.

Then I went to a swap meet at Rock. Paid $5 to park and the lot was full. They ended up sticking us down some side access road. All dirt, warm Jan day. Fuckin mud hole. Trashed my car. I was PISSED. WTF did I pay $5 for.

Never again go to anything at Rock Finacial!
