I live about 2 miles from the show venue. Traffic may be heavy, but since it's such a short distance, it shouldn't be too irritating. Plus, I'm carpooling with my friends and I'm not the driver, so I won't be too stressed.
Hit the show on Friday. Light crowd. GREAT time! Had trouble getting past the Ducati display. The Ride for Kids (Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation) raffle bike this year is a flat tracker built from a CBR250R. Very cool.
