Well, we had a good time at the M/C show today. I met Jay and Doug at the bottom of the third escalator. We called looking for Al and he was waiting just outside the show floor doors. We proceeded inside and called to check on John Rehder, and he and Janie and Robbie had just arrived at the site and were on their way down, so we hung around to wait on them. We moved on to the BMW both and met up with Al and Jan Strickland.
We just walked aroung the show and met up back the the BMW booth around noon to go grab a bite to eat. Looks like Janie is the big winner today, as she got new boots and a new summer jacket.
We stepped out to go get a bite of lunch in the CNN Center since they have a food court. I don't think any of us had a bad meal. After a quick bite , John, Janie, Robbie and Jay decided they were going to head home. Doug, Al, Jan and I went back into the main hall. Jan and Al headed off to look at Nolan Helmets. Doug and I proceeded to head to the Suzuki booth, Honda, Aprillia, and to the Kawasaki booth to see the 1400 Concours. I wasn't overly impressed, but I haven't ridden as much as everyone else. Doug decided it was time to head out so he left.
I made another pass around the vendors looking to see if there were any communications folks there for Tom Gallo, but only AutoCom showed up and he's not particularly interested in another of their units. I caught up with Al and Jan and then have ordered some new Nolan helmets, with graphics according to Jan. I think that they got them BlueTooth enabled, but I just don't remember.
Here's a few pix from the day (L to R, top to bottom)
