Ta for the Code.  Got my ticket.
Last year my local Bike Shop offered discounted tickets on their Facebook page, but then denied all knowledge when I went in and asked to buy one from them.
Obviously only for their favourite customers - not those who only spent $150 on a new jacket and other equipment last year  >:(

No, just a work trip - it's the pre-xmas round of entertaining and boozing with clients.  So no bike-riding this time.
Unfortunately, I'll miss the UK Bike show in Birmingham too, which is 18-26 November 2017.

Can you get me a Harley?  One of those ones with the big bars, I think would suit me.

Okay. Being that I am a little neurotic. Need to know the plan for Dec 1. Where are we meeting and who's driving or taking the train. I will be working half day that day so should be ready to roll by 3pm. Also don't have my Christmas party scheduled on the same day this year.

Yeah John, we can definitely meet up in Freehold.  Not sure if anyone's driving this year though...

I'm up for taking the train in, but looking to leave earlier than 3pm.  We usually get there for the show opening which I think is 2pm on Friday, and meet first for lunch at Beer Authority around noon I think.

Capo, what time did you make the reservation for?
Title: Re: 2017 NYC Motorcycle Show Dec 1
Post by: Capo on November 21, 2017, 04:24:44 PM
We are reserved for 12:00, so I'll be real drunk by the time you all get there. My recco is that you meet us at the show, Terry, and we can enjoy the post- game beers without the fear of you missing the Christmas party. I can plan a more deluxe place for dinner etc after the show.

Here's the funny thing. When I made the Facebook Event for NJRATS, with the Beer Authority pre-game, it somehow picked up and replaced the actual NY MC Show event on Facebook. So everyone who is seeing the NY show on FB, sees our event! We have had something like 3000 people either respond, forward or reply! So, it might get a little crowded!

Okay. I will have to get out of work even earlier. The crowd would be okay as long as they are paying for their own booze.

Maybe we should take that FB event down for now and try to curtail the madness...

You could print it out and sell it for ten bucks to all 2,000 people at your pre-show party?
Be careful though, it's a barcode, so it'll only let one person in (the first to use it).
