HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I went last year, lots of cool stuff. Chopper kits, parts, leathers (with tons of fringe), custom harleys, hot chicks in bikinis. The only thing to deter me would have been the bike gangs that walk around like they own the place. Thell walk right in to you and expect you to move, stuff like that, but they do have metal detectors at the entrance to keep the weapons out.

biker gangs and metal detectors, sounds more like a prison then a motorcycle show.

Yeah, they bend ya over right at the door to welcome you.

Seriously, should be good this year. Russell Mitchell of Exile Cycles and Joe Martin of Martin Bros. are gonna be there. I'll be in the rat bike section where I like it. I'll leave the cartoon bikes for the RUB's.

I went last year. Definitely some cool choppers there. Everything else was just okay...it's worth it to go at least once in your life. And what else is there to do for bikes in the winter?

Also, you can get tattoos there too
