Expect full disclosure this weekend.



I am looking forward to seeing a lot of my friends Pandy..really??and a facility built to bring the two wheel world into the future. And.....seeing the bike that may launch this company into 2 wheel manufacturing legend.

Very grateful for them opening their doors to us.

I hope they have 4-wheel parking for us dweebz stuck in cages. But the handicap plates get me preferential parking without even having to tip big!!

This sounds pretty epic. Clearing the calendar of my boyz in white jackets! Bring it on, budman!!!!!!!

I have updated the first post with more info.
We are still working on getting a few more folks to throw up Pop ups and hang.

One really cool thing is Boosted Skateboards is coming out. So you can check out the E - Boards and give one a demo run too.!

So where are they located? Have you ever been there? The address posted is on my daily way from *$, I even went through the parking lot this morning but did not see any "lightning". Are they hiding among the school buses? ;-)

Located in South San Jose.
Corner of San Ignacio Ave and Las Colinas Ln, a block away from Great Oaks, a couple blocks from Monterey and Bernal Rd, Hwy 85 and 101...

The logo is on the window, no sign, me thinks.
