    An indoor show at a convention center (even with the convention center’s neighbor, the Broken Spoke) does not a bike week make! Good idea but needs more time – more space – more planning!

    Lobo, you sound like a jealous rally competitor or vendor. How do you know anything about their planning? Come on! Yes, they can expand outside as much as they want.

    No, I’m neither. I used to be a vendor though (back in the day) and have seen my share of promoters promoting what they want people to hear and not necessarily what is. Now I am just a cranky old man!

    (I just became a little skeptical when I saw past posts in this forum telling everyone (more than once) that everything they need is in the warehouse and arts district. I guess those words do not conjure up my idea of a bike week.

    Anyway, I do wish them well. New Orleans (the city and the locals) deserve a break!

    Not bad for an inaugural event – Harley-Davidson, Bourget, 888 Race Pro and West Coast Choppers, plus the first-ever Easyriders V-Twin show within a larger event,, plus the Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse and Broken Spoke Saloon and “Chrome Kitchen” cooking demos and interaction between chefs and builders – plus “Taste of New Orleans” festival presented Thursday, Friday and Saturday by Louisiana Seafood and a second “Experience New Orleans” food festival in Heritage Park, adjoining the 26,000 sq ft Spoke Entertainment Complex. Next year there is more than 100,000 square feet that we have not even touched this year, adjacent to the 160,000 sq.ft. Morial Convention Center…. so we will definately have room to grow and room to keep this a private atmosphere surrounded by closed streets for a New Orleans – biker style party! Thanks for the well wishes… and believe me, we want/need everyone’s support in order to make this an annual event. See you in NOLA (I hope)

    Come on Lobo, the logisitics alone of putting all of the essential elements together on the magnitude they have achieved is surely worth a word of praise even from a cranky old man.
