T Minus 1.5 days
I went to see my lovely family yesterday for a pre birthday celebration. My dad and I almost share the same birthdays, he's 11/14 and I'm 11/16. Since I probably won't see them again until Thanksgiving (due to the San Mateo Motorcycle Show), we had an early birthday celebration last night with my family. It was great to go home and have home cooked Korean food that I can't get anywhere except from my mom.
I also came home with a slightly different carry on roller to minimize the number of bags I'll be taking with me. I planned on taking my Ogio in addition to my roll on but I forgot that our lovely friends with the TSA only allow us to bring 1 + 1 carry on. So I'll be packing super light!
I've finally put together a "To See" list of all the booths I want to visit. It's already long and keeps getting longer. I'm going to do my best to hit all of the booths I can and bring back as many photos as possible. I need to figure out which shoes to wear those days. I think my feet are going to be screaming at me by the end.
As you can see from the floorplan above, there are seven (7) pavilions to explore. Not only that, but they also have a whole outdoor racing area including flat track, quad freestyle, drag racing, and stunt show! Crazy. I only wish our shows could be this large.
I'll only have 2 full days at the show so I'll need to be as efficient as possible. I hear the crowds are insane, so I guess I'll practice using "Permesso" in my sweetest voice as I squeeze my way through the hordes of fellow moto enthusiasts.
