Don't forget, it is at the Washington State Convention Center and not Centurylink! They moved it a few years ago. Don't ask me if I've made the mistake of showing up at Centurylink.

Yep, I know where it is, but thanks. I'm probably going to ride down early depending on the weather. If you see a tall guy in a Christini shirt wandering in a daze, it will most likely be me.

Heads up, gentlemen. (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I-5 southbound will be more FUBAR than usual this weekend. Between 520 and 90, it's down to one lane southbound.

Other than getting through there before 6am southbound, what's a good option getting around that lane closure coming in from Everett?

Uhhhh . . . . . . Bail the 5 at Green Lake (N. 80th Street) & work your way to the 99 south >>>> Exit just before the tunnel; Then city streets to the CC.

Good luck with that . . . . . . .

No problem with traffic, as the lane closure starts beyond the convention center, I took the express lanes, and I got there about 10am. Great to see some old racing buddies and drool on some new bikes. Sat on the 1290 SD and it felt small and thin, but can't really justify needing 70 more HP and 30 more ft/lbs than my SV. Not even same power and 50 fewer lbs on the FZ-09 for less than half the price of the 1290. I did get a rain on the way home.
