I'm thinking I might rent a room and make a weekend of it. If Dino BBQ is open in the winter, I might try it out for supper. :banadanc

Hey...NYS Fairgrounds about 2 miles from my house...heck yes I'll be there! Thanks for letting me know about it Regina!

Yep...the Dino is open year round...though this time of year the street isn't lined with bikes as it is in the summer. Regina, sent you a PM re: the Syracuse show.

yup- Dino is open,they even have a website that will let you know who is playing the nights you are in town or ??

have you been to Dino before ? they had 2 of the 3 partners sell out to George Soros conglomerate and the bean counters have begun to raise prices and skimp on food a bit.. all good things right ? lol! but they still have a kick azz sauce and host great blues most nights,so they still do most things right ;)

I'll bet....it will be long lines out the door waiting at the Dino that weekend...because of the bike show....the Dino is so well known every biker visiting the area will want to go there......probably at the Limp Lizard too....another BBQ/Bikes and Blues joint in Syracuse.....walking distance from our house!
I spent 15 years at Fire Station 12...one block from the Dino so we could watch the bikes come and go all summer long. It was the N&H diner....greasy spoon food piled high and cheap..... when I first went to 12's.
Where are you locally Headly?

Which Limp can you walk to ? Western Lights,Liverpool or N/Syr ?

I am in the/a nice neighborhood of Syracuse near Schiller Park,might be moving to Camillus.

Yeah - as it gets near just post which day you plan on going - sometimes I go sat for the party other times I go sun looking for a deal before close ..

Go early. I went on Halloween, and we could barely walk in the door. Ended up going elsewhere.

13th January 2011, 01:11
Yep...I'd be very concerned about getting in the Dino on a big swap meet weekend.....but...there is the Quaker State Steak and Lube right up the road.....lol...!

OK, since I couldn't make Springfield, I locked myself into Syracuse. I just booked a room at the Parkview Hotel. now.... who's up for an XLforum meetup in Syracuse on Feb 12th-13th??

23rd January 2011, 21:27
just got out of work--springfield is a 2 hour ride--no going to that show this year for me either-
i did take off next sunday for the boston show,the only one i will make,other than maybe wilmington ma. in march --wish i could make the syracuse swap,well i could if i wanted to book off work again and take the drive,we'll see--if not let us no how it is

fun4regina
23rd January 2011, 21:53
Well, if you decide to do it, let me know so we can meet. I plan on meeting RTB, Mrs. RTB, and Headly too if we can all arrange it.

Priceline has some nice hotel rooms to be had that weekend for about $50. Add that to good bike buys and good company, and it seems like it will add up to a good weekend!

23rd January 2011, 21:57
With some luck, my BF and I are going. We missed last year. Was at Dino this past Monday for lunch. The place will be packed swap meet week end. I have a friend at Liz's Leathers. She sews patches on and fixes leather. She's a good friend and we always leave our coats there while we walk around.

23rd January 2011, 22:03
already marked my calendar,so i will remember as it gets closer/see if i can go-may even have weekends(or partial) off by then--work is posting bids starting this monday--we pick in seniority order what we want for days off/start times from the list of available work assignments---i am #49 out of about 120--so i usually do ok--but just out of reach for sat/sun off..i really would like to attend --not much around here for swap meets

http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/showthread.php?threadid=1032771 i am really going to try and make the swap out there- 350 miles one way,(piece of cake)i would leave saturday sometime after work--call in sick sunday,and i have monday and tuesday off ---
hey regina -- how is that harley rendezvous in your sig... i take it you have been to it, when i go to the page for it,they also advertise a swap meet/bike show in somerset nj-- ever been ? i want to start going to some events other than what is local--and i love to drive,so the long distance is OK

fun4regina
1st February 2011, 02:19
I just changed the link in my sig, check out the new one. Rendezvous (fondly called 'vous by most partygoers) is the best party I've ever been to. It's most enjoyable with a group I think, but if you're even remotely friendly, you'll make friends there immediately. Feel free to PM me for any details you want.

I am still going to 'cuse too, for the super swap. I've never been to somerset, I think it already passed though. I'm on the lookout for more events in the NE though, so if you find em, gimme advance notice and I'll see if I can go. I love checking out new places. :)

Headly
5th February 2011, 22:31
who/when/where ?

Noon, 1pm ?? sat or sun ?

I will most likely go Sat for a couple hours,do a loop of the place once and make note of what I want,if anything.. then do a second loop to work the deals :D

my R/k shocks were $100 when I 1st saw em,they left w/ me for $50 :banadanc

I'll be heading up saturday, not sure what time, probably pretty early.

Never been to an event like this so im not sure what to expect. How big is this? Are there vendors as well? Harley only? or a swap meet for cycles in general?

fun4regina
8th February 2011, 13:48
bobber, send your cell number to RTB, we'll all meet up there. I think it's pretty big, and it will be mostly Harley but prolly a sprinkling of other stuff.

I've been busy with a sick child all week. If I get sick, I'm going anyway! < wink >

I have a hotel room booked for Sat night, so I can go both days, from what I understand the best deals are to be had on Sunday afternoon. Anyone staying in town up for dinner on Sat night? I'd hate to eat alone when so many XLFers will be in close proximity, haha

No joke about you guys sending your number to RTB. He volunteered to coordinate, and I'd hate to hand my number out (I wan't to avoid drunken 2am texts from strangers, at least on school nights, haha), but I'd really like to meet as many of you as I can. It's really not often that I find people who talk to me because they are interested in the same stuff I am, it's refreshing, and I don't want to miss the opportunity. :)

hey, I'll have you know, Blaze only sends me drunken texts before 10pm, haha.

Just kidding, really he hardly texts me at all!

And, I'm sure there's a bus (or train?) that runs the thruway. You should come over.

KaotikEvo
8th February 2011, 15:14
I'll look into something, it would be great to meet a few folks from here. It figures, when i actually have the time, something else jumps up and gets in the way.

8th February 2011, 15:17

fun4regina
8th February 2011, 15:24
I checked the train, it's $26 each way. For the right bargain at the swap meet, that's a good price. Heck, it's a good price anyways, the gas would cost more than that. IF you do decide to figure something out, lemme know, I'll see about picking you up from the train/bus station if you want. I'll hold up a big cardboard sign that says KaotikEvo lol

RTB508
8th February 2011, 18:35
I've been watching the thread and a couple have sent me their numbers...I don't have text on my phone Regina...I'm thinking it might be just as easy for me to make up a banner or sign of some sort. There is a little restaurant/coffee place in the building, Center of Progress, where the swap is going to be. I can see if I can put the sign up on the wall or on a table to designate a place for forum members to gather. We can set a time, like 1:00 PM Saturday to connect with each other. Regina I'll PM you my cell number as well.

fun4regina
8th February 2011, 19:18
yes, a sign will work. i can't believe you don't text. at school with my classmates, i won't even give my number out for group project coordination unless they agree to my strict 'text-only' rule!

RTB508
8th February 2011, 19:30
I'll make up a sign in the next couple of days...and then post a pic of it here so you all will know what to look for......
Not doing arts and crafts today...it's my B'day and I plan on a nice dinner and a beer or two tonight......beats me how the heck I made it to 60!!!!!!!!!!!

Me and the girlfriend will be up there early Saturday, and might head back up Sunday if I find any possible deals. I'd be interested in meeting a few people from the forums for coffee, or even dinner Saturday night. Whatever you guys/gals decide on.

Regina, i love your text-only policy. I'm the same way about phones. I hate talking when people can get their point across with a simple text, that you can read and respond to when you want lol. And by the way, just noticed your only about 20 minutes from my house. Im from Elmira, NY. Once this shitty weather goes away we'll have to meet up for a cruise.

I had a great time. I got a pair of Python pipes for $40 and a pair of SE slip-ons for $30. Have no idea if these were good buys, but I had fun carrying them around all day. I also got pegs, grips, and a new horn, and had a great breakfast with RTB and his wife, and met lots of great folks. Not enough XLforum members though, considering how many said they were coming!!

14th February 2011, 01:44
I REALLY wish i could have made it. My car/bike club plans on organizing a 'bike' only cookout somewhere central for everybody this season. We hold a very successful show every year and this year we are going to try and do a 'super cruise' type event as well. I'll be sure to start a thread and invite everyone on the XL forums.

I did my errands yesterday - today I had to show my 4 runner for sale to someone who wanted to see it,so I got there ~2:30 and walked in like I owned the joint through a side door, so I got in free - bonus!:smoke

I bought the annual obligatory Performance HD Syracuse T-shirt for $10 - they bring there left overs and clear em out every yr- not a bad design -grey/black and cool wings with old fashioned Harley Davidson script

I also got maybe lucky with a pair of Sportster S shocks in what seems to be in good shape for a nice price :shhhh :D

I missed seeing the custom bikes - by the time I got done shopping and scmhoozing with local wrenches and part vendors, the fancy bikes were getting rolled away - but that is ok - I met some cool people and got a good deal or 2

roadogette
14th February 2011, 02:53
Pete, there were several of the Cannonball bikes there. The picture of the band is cool. Two of my friends were in that band. I'm sure we crossed paths yesterday, but didn't know it. A get together this summer sounds good.
