Re: CES

There have been a bunch of posts about Audio topics and Concerts and I was wondering if anyone attends the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. I normally get to see a bunch of live performances. In the last few years I saw ELO, BB King, Tower of Power, Dave Matthews and others and could probably scrounge up a few more passes. I can get anyone interested in attending free admission, that's easy.

I also wonder if there could be a Fireblades track day at that time where I could rent a bike and spend a track day with some of you. It would be great since it's in the throws of the east coast winter and love to able to ride. I may be able to ship my bike out with some of the Demo cars if renting isn't an option. I could probably write the whole thing off as a business expense too! Maybe someone in the area can look into it.

Re: CES

How much advance notice do you need? I'd love to go but I have to check with the boss.

Re: CES

I believe the cutoff date for free registration is the end of November, so plenty of time.

Re: CES

CES is by far the best of the Vegas trade shows.
I'll probably be there at least a few days, seeing as it's a quick jump away.
As for organizing a track day, it is highly unlikely. We (half-heartedly) tried to get one together at the Spring Mountain track for this spring/early summer that didn't take.
That track, located an hour away in Pahrump, is the easiest and least expensive to get hold of but would still require getting 20+ riders to make it readily affordable.
Renting sportbikes - especially for track use - will be a difficult/expensive quest. Also, the Vegas natives can chime in here, but the surface streets there suck. Very slick, and not much in the way of curves unless you head out to the dam.
Oh, and it's winter here in the west in January also, you know.
The Pahrump area will more than likely have snow (although last winter was very mild to put it lightly), but Vegas rarely does. It is, however, quite chilly out on the strip in the evenings.
We could do a get together at someplace like GameWorks and have a shootout on the Moto racing video games, though.
As it gets nearer, let's talk and figure out some type of meet for those that can or will be going.

Re: CES

I live there and keep missing it due to conflicting work schedules (usually out of town).
