    DC IMS 2015

    The show started yesterday and goes through tomorrow. I'm taking Pretty Pillion and meeting some friends there. Hopefully some of you other Rocket drivers will get the chance to see the pretty new things they have at the Washington Convention center this weekend.

    We saw Taildragger and his lovely wife Karen at the show. My big take away was the Di Salvo Customized Roadster, especially when I saw the Carpenter sticker on the front fender. However, the bike is a regular roadster with cool ascetics.

    not quite that far back..appears I was wrong about that though (again)..I haven't been for a few years so I asked my better half and she replied, "no you dumbass, it was a coupon for $5 off the ticket price and the ticket price was damn sure more than $5"..story of my life.

    hey Boog, is that you or Tdragger?
