DC moto show almost here

counting down the days till the moto show hits the convention center here in DC. there was a lot of chatter from those planning to attend. hopefully we can put some faces with names, etc. also looking forward to the FASTER movie. hopefully they will have sey up a nice viewing in one of the halls or rooms. my office is not too far from the center, so i may hit it briefly on friday and then again for longer on sat. or sun. will have my camera ready to take lots of pics. wonder if they intend to do it up more nicely since their venue has improved?

Sorry Repoe, but no Faster. Here's an email I recently recieved from them:

FASTER NEWS December 19 2003-12-18

We've heard from many of you who have been looking forward to FASTER coming
to your town with the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show, and are
very sorry to announce that weíve got to cancel these screenings. Despite
great support from fans, and the much-appreciated help of Cycle World, it
turns out that these screenings are not the best way to be showing the
movie.

Instead, we are going to focus on getting FASTER out to as many of you as
possible, as soon as possible. We will release the DVD in the United States
in March. Over the next few months we will also be showing the movie in
selected cinemas in the US, The first screenings are in Salt Lake City and
Park City, Utah in January, where FASTER is playing in the Slamdance Film
Festival. The dates and times are:

Madstone Theater, Salt Lake City
Sunday January 18 at 3pm
Friday January 23 at 7pm

Slamdance Festival, Park City, Utah
Sunday January 18 at 8.30pm

Visit slamdance.com for full screening info
We will post news on further screenings soon. Please check back here for the
latest info, or go to our sign-up page and weíll email you the updates.
Thanks again for your support!


FASTER RELEASE IN OTHER COUNTRIES
We are making good progress and will have release dates soon. FASTER will be
in cinemas in several countries and available on DVD and video all over the
world. We will publish news as soon as we have it. Thanks for your patience.

TRACK DAY INFO
We want to make fastermovie.com a source of information on track days and
schools all over the world. If you want your school, club or track listed on
the site, send us your info.Thanks for your support

Mark Neale
FASTER Director

IF YOU WANT TO GO FASTER, TAKE IT TO THE TRACK.

boy dingo, you sure can ruin a guy's day oh well guess i will be waiting for it on DVD. got a dvd player for my girlie for christmas, now i can subject her to the boxer cup AND the faster DVD!

not that the show is going to be of anything spectacular. ducati is using new york and one of the california shows to present the retro line. hope they have those on hand in DC. but other than that, unless they have some of the actual race bikes, not sure there will be anything great to speak of. there really isnt anything gear-wise needed from the vendors. so it will just be a day, or two, looking at bikes and such.

I'll probably head over there via Metro Friday after work. Got Reserve duty that weekend.

Right now it's 45^F, sun's out, streets are clean & dry. What the hell am I doing online? I'm going riding...

Looks like our plan is to head over sunday. I never got word about the discounted tickets so I guess I will just go with my AMA discount. Anyone want to go sunday and meet up?
