Re: San Mateo Bike Show

John, it was great seeing you guys at the show, today. We'll have to setup a dinner in our neck of the woods, after the holidays, so that some of us "old" HDDC/South aka SAWDOG folks can get together for a quiet dinner in our neck of the woods, maybe in Brentwood, Clayton, Danville, Pleasanton or Livermore (perhaps at "The Cattlemen's"--which is one of Bob 'TenBeers' favorite haunts). It would be great seeing Nelson, Bob, Larry, Steve, Dan and the rest of the locals again. Heck, it would be awesome if some of the folks from the Sac area could make it too.

Again, it was great seeing you today!

The Northern California BMW Dealers will have a booth. The S1000RR may make an appearance.

Re: San Mateo Bike Show

I'm all too familiar with Fridays in SF Bay area, I worked in the city for 31 years. By 9:00 or so it should be tolerable but not great. If the weather is OK I'll take the bike down early and then do the show. If the weather is poor I'll take the P/U and suffer thru.....I don't mind the cold but hate riding in the fog, always seems to be an idiot doing 90mph screaming up behind in a car....

Re: San Mateo Bike Show

Hey, if you guys ride down on Saturday, stop by the "Ride for Kids" booth. Louise and I will be working it from Noon-4pm.

Re: San Mateo Bike Show

If you guys order your tickets online and put BMWMOA in the promotional code space, you get three dollars off. Just bought mine and it works.

Re: San Mateo Bike Show

The ride home Friday unless you stay late is not fun at all. From 3PM on, exiting the Bay Area can be torture, especially from the west side.

Re: San Mateo Bike Show

I might head down Friday or Saturday. I haven't decided which day yet.

Nope, I have to work. I'll be going down Sunday, riding if the weather is decent.

San Mateo Bike Show

The only day I can go is Friday. The show is 4pm to 9:00. Probably go down a little early to miss the traffic and have lunch. Anyone else headed down that day?
