I like to see them. But my original question was what do the warning signs look like?

SuperBowl or a new GS?

Costco has Super Bowl tickets and travel packages. Here's one that includes 2 tickets to the game, two tickets to a taste of the NFL (whatever that is), 4 nights accommodations at the comfort suites, some tickets to the pre game party and transportation from the hotel to the game. All this is $15,499.99. By the time you pay for airfare, taxes on the tickets, and other junk, you could have bought a brand new R1200 GS for two. I cannot imagine spending that sort of money to go to a football game. I'd take the motorcycle every time.

But everyone has different spending priorities.

There have been a few years when the commercials were better and more interesting than the game.

Wait. When did I write this? And why does it have Ghost's name on it?

So how much you selling your bike for? I can do a quick close, for the right price. That way you could take your girl or your Dad to the game. Better yet, your future father-in-law.

Sad but true.

I swear that Super Bowl commercials are the only ones that get any thought. They probably take almost a year to figure out.

Dahveed,

Thanks for the heads up on this. Since we don't have a Costco in Waco, I had to go online to make the arrangements. I've always wanted to go to a Super Bowl and even though it's a little expensive, in the long run it'll be worth it. I'm sure there will be those who think I'm nuts for doing this but then again, to me it's kinda like riding the haul road.

Your welcome Dan. I hope you enjoy the game. Let us know where your tickets are and I'll keep my eyes open for you during the game.

Did you go last year when it was in your own backyard?

Yeah, they do generally put their A team on those commercials. Too bad they don't do that on most adverts.
