Last year was very dissapointing, I agree with the pirate leather crowd comment (no safety promos at all), and people who don't even ride.

Good thing I just cab it there and back for super cheap. Enjoy the show guys, ill definitely end up there anyway, something to do on a cold winter day.

Places that I still go to (cause I know the bartender & she takes care of ya) is Campinos on Jabez (off WIlson).
For good lunch specials - Caffe Italia
Brazilia on Monroe for the eye candy & Rodizio

Boi Na Brasa isn't bad as well. I tend to stay away from the tourist traps on Ferry.

Taste of Portugal & Allegro are good as well. For real good bread, Teixeira ( I go to the one on Magazine & Kossuth)

My buddy says Dinosaur BBQ near the arena is good w/ good music

Jeez I'm hungry now
I'm right off Ferry St, behind Iberia Peninsula. I'm making a list of the places you suggest, always open to new sugestions. Probably one of my favorites is Spanish Tavern. A little pricey, but good. The lunch room always make a real good sandwich. Francesca was real good,, but got poor for a while, but better now. There is a eal good Italian on over about South St, can't remember the name, but good. Rodizio is pretty good. Anyway I fly for Continental, or whoevers name they painted on the roof today.

My wife and I are going on the 18th. She has never really been to NYC (Highschool marching band twice in a parade, and a couple doctors visits via bus then taxi). Going to take her down the Poughkeepsie train line (she has never been on one of those either). Then we will walk from Grand Central, to the Javits. That way get to see Times Square, NY library, couple other smaller things. After that she can really determine how much she dislikes cities.

it would be a weeking end trip.

I was thinking train into city. any where to stay with in walk or cab ride under $300 that is nice? ( her not me)
You can find just about anything your looking for there, just check out all the small vendor booths. Yeah lots of pirate gear. The Arai guys have always been super helpful. They'll measure your melon, reccomend helmet shell style, size and cheek pads , then go shopping on line for the best price with a perfect fit.

You can ride the subway and get closer if it is really cold. IIRC it is like 4 blocks to walk from the station closest to the JJC, it is not far at all. Last time we did it there was some work going on on one of the lines so we had to go south and take another subway train back up. But usually it is quicker than that. Sorry, do not recall the line. Maps at the station are good, so follow the maze to where they tell you and give her some real culture. The kids always freak out Mom with their stories when we get back.

Fire codes, don't want them blocking egresses if they have to clear the place. There is usually more than just the M/C show going on at the same time too. It is a safety thing.

I've gone for the last couple of years and I'm planning to go again. Mostly, I just like to sit on all the bikes :-) I take the subway down and walk. I notice more adventure gear over the years.
