I believe the latest BMWMOA mag says that if you use the keyword "BMWMOA" when ordering tickets, you get a discount. That is, if this bike show is the one sponsored by Progressive.....

Oh Mr. Guy, it is lovely to see Mr. Grinch come out of his cave..... glad to have company because I don't do Christmas very well either. We are kindred spirits. So hang in there brother.

Merry Christmas to all though. We wish everyone a safe and happy holidays. I can't wait to go to NY in Jan and get my own present, that XR650L. Then just maybe I'll be able to hang with the real dirt dabbers in this group.

Ho ho ho!

And to Jeff, in that regard..............

As I get older I really hate the thought of traveling over a holiday (especially on I-95), but the trip tomorrow is one I can’t avoid. We’ll be heading up to MD to see my older daughter and hubby, our grandsons, and my younger daughter who went up a few days ago. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

Older daughter and family:


The elder grandson topping out the tree last night:


Safe travels to any of you heading out, and of course, a very Merry Christmas to you all!!

As I was coming up, our traditional Christmas eve dinner consisted of oyster stew, pies, etc. Altho' I will be the only one eating it, tonight's dinner (mine) will honor that tradition; my mom would be proud:

Even though it's usually a pirate-fest, I do like to see the new bikes. I usually transport myself to the Springfield Metro and train it in from there. But I'm open. Didn't know if anyone else was interested.

Never been. When is it? I might consider it this year. I agree if I'm going to DC, I go to Springfield and ride the metro.

I have a discount code I can give you that will get you a few bux off of the on-line price. Be aware, that they may charge a fee for online purchases.... which seems silly - but it will keep you from having to stand in line at the gate.

PM me and I will pass along the promo code.

Guy

Guy said it was Jan 4-6. I assume the planned trip would be on whichever of those is a Saturday. I'd be willing to drive the TDi up to Springfield if nothing else pops up preventing me from going.

Here is a pic of our quick fix from yesterday thanks to Michhub for having the zip tie.

I will be out of town for the show, but the Progressive code is "PRG6DC". Supposed to be good for a $10 advance ticket.
