    The Big GIG: NYC Motorcycle Show

    The big GIG - Gather In Gotham & Banish the Blahs

    Have bib and tucker, train tickets and discount entry coupons.

    Tessler knows the best spots in Gotham.

    We will meet at O'Farrell's. Time to be determined by the Mai tre d'

    If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.


    I nominate Tessler is the ride Meister and Mai tre d'

    Is there a second?

    Wait for me... Why I oughta!!

    Okeedoke. We're on for the 19th. But the show doesn't start til 2:00 pm. I say we meet at O'Farrell's prior to the event. Go to the show and then convene to a convenient venue thereafter for post-show victuals and libations. I will be consulting with O'Snoone and O'Bachorz on ye appropriate NYC joint. This might be a job for Uncle Nick's or El Quijote... (considering the potential size of this partay).

    This gon' be fun!

    Thank you

    Thank you Mr. Tessler. This may be the first "rally" in the middle of a city. Camping probably not a good idea.
    New York - so nice they named it twice!

    Should we get a t-shirt done?

    The mini-rally. Make it an annual thing. The 2006 Gather in Gotham. Ain't much else going on in January. I would like a t-shirt or....a sweatshirt since it is January.

    I'll have some in my side case, right next to the wool underoos; but no you can't share either, as if it hasn't been jinxed!, I'll be wearing the former and you wouldn't want the sweaty from the road latter.
    Regardless, I think we should get our rally T-shirts early this year. Or maybe Tessler will come up with a new Limited Edition NYC design for all those who ride in.

    I was going to see if I could find a non-member's wife at the show and see if she would write it so we would have something to cry about here when winter arrives.
