That’s what I was thinking.

BUMP  -- It's two weeks out. Time to start drooling again.

So, who's going? I'll be busy Saturday so I'll prob take Friday afternoon off to be there early.

Note that the Friday time has changed from the initial notice from 10-3:30 to 4:30 to 7. 

They will have the following models: 390 DUKE, 790 DUKE, 690 SMC, 690 ENDURO, 1090 ADVENTURE R, 1290 ADVENTURE R, 1290 ADVENTURE S, 1290 SUPER DUKE GT, and 1290 SUPER DUKE R.  

Demo time: Friday 4:30 to 7:00 Saturday 10:00am to 3:30

Demo Location Address:

American Motorcyclist Association
13515 Yarmouth Dr.
Pickerington, OH 43147

Apparently the 790 Adventure is still invisible.

BUMP.

I called the dealer, Wheelsports. Yes, the Friday demo rides are from 4:30-7:30. They will be on suburban back streets. I'm guessing 35 mph max.

Thinking harder about a 2-hr ride to get there.

I was considering ditching this for a 3 day trip but my destination has rain forecast just like friday here. Up in the air, may aim for early Saturday.

That awkward moment when you're stuck behind the demo truck, and know your  not going to make the event.
