Sure Denny, time and work permitting. When it gets closer we should plan a time and place to meet up. BMW booth probably, eh?

It may be cold going up and back but I'm in. I suppose we could take a cage if we need too.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Thumbs up Me Too!

I missed the show last year, so you can count me in. Maybe we could plan to grab a bite (somewhere in the Seattle/Tacoma area?) and discuss the show, rides for 2007, etc...

Great Idea, Dan. If it isn't a "ride" day we could probably cage pool from here. As we get closer we can figure all that out. I'm looking forward to it.

Unhappy

well gang, after responding so quickly to this show, I have just found out that I will not even be in the Pac NW for this weekend. I will be in training down in Oklahoma City! No getting out of it either, as it is required recurrent training for all Inspectors!

So have fun, and please do keep Coni in mind for the ride/drive or whatever develops.

Question Cage or Ride

Ok, I am going to go way out on a limb here, but my guess is that Saturday is going to be in the 40’s with a chance of rain (I must be psychic). For the folks in the Portland area that plan on attending the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in Seattle on Saturday, anyone interested in:

1. Sharing a cage?

2. Group ride?

If a cage is in order, I volunteer to drive. If a group wants to ride up, I volunteer to wave as you ride by. OK, maybe I would ride if there was someone to pry me off the bike when we got there.

Anyway, what’s the plan?

..and EVERYONE - don’t forget about the get-together at Coopers Alehouse! List so far:

2 - Ernie and Pauline
3 - Brian (sanjaun2)
5 - Denny & Michele (avonfloater)
6 – Dan (Reelman)

Anyone have a suggested time?

All is up in the air for me. The weather is playing havoc in my line of work. I'm on-call for Saturday and Sunday is now looking threatened. I'm a last minute bet at best. The Fish and Chips at Coopers is great, so if I don't make it please check it out and say hi to our friends at Ride West.

I will probably be there when it opens at 9:30 but I could meet up with folks at 10:30 on Saturday if that is the concensus. BMW (North America), Ride West BMW and South Sound BMW all have exhibits. Where do we want to rendezvous.

I'm not going to make it up there. I hope you all have a great time.

Is it spring yet?

Sorry about the stand-by Ernie. Maybe they'll let you off the hook. I'll try the fish and chips for ya!

It looks like meeting up at 10:30am on saturday is the preferred plan, That would leave plenty of time for the show and a late lunch/early dinner at Cooper's. That way everyone from the south can get home before its to late. I thought that Southsound and Ridewest share the same floor space at the show? If so we can meet there..... Dan, what say you? Anyone else out there feel free to show up at 10:30 and at coopers as well. The more the merrier.

If the sun comes up and the creek don't rize we'll see you there at 10:30 am or so. What's the easiest way to find the place coming north on I-5?

Actually they all have their own boothes and Ride West BMW has two, though they are all in the same general area.

If you come down to the main floor from the concourse level using the stairway on the West side of the stadium:

Ride West BMW - Booth #348 - a small booth just to the West of the stairway

South Sound BMW - Booth #449 - A pretty good sized area immediately East of the stairway.

BMW (North America) - Booth #B - A large area immediately East of South Sound BMW

Ride West BMW - Booth #839 - A pretty good sized area catty-corner from the SE corner of Booth #B

Here is a link to the show website with floorplans and vendor lists.

Since nobody has suggested a specific location I propose meeting at the BMW Corporate booth (Booth #B) at the K1200LT display seeing as how they are likely to have an LT display.

I will be easy to spot because I will look like the leather clad Harley biker dude with a Combat Veterans International patch on the back of my vest. I am meeting up with some of my friends from that organization in the afternoon.

Sounds like they are all within sight distance of each other. But for the sake of all lets make Southsound the place.

The show was great, So was the company! I bought the destination highways books for Washington,N Cal, and British columbia. I guess I have a lot of reading and RIDIN to do. I have a bad feeling that work is going to get in my way of having fun again this year. Cooper's ale house was good as well. We averaged .8 beers a piece. We missed not having Coni and the rest you there.

Sitting here in my Hotel room at Oklahoma City reading you post I find myself very envious Brian! Sounds like you all had a great time, even with our absence!

Wish I had been there,

PS: Sent you a PM Brian!

Ditto, Brian. Great company and great show. The beer wasn't bad either!

Sounds like a great time guys. Sorry that I had to miss. Ended up having to fly to Phoenix at the last minute to supervise some work that was being done here. (I have though, managed to ride every available minute... a perfect 68 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!) Anything newsworthy from the show?

I look forward to joining you guys and Coni there next year.

Jeff,

Yes, there was some very exciting news (maybe everyone already knew this but me?). I think it deserves a separate thread.

The show was very good and I specially enjoyed meeting a couple folks from this site in person.

(Hey Jim, that's a spiffy picture of you in the 1968 Illahee, p14)
