Exactly, Larz. Google says it's only 2,473 miles from me (36 hours in current traffic).

Got back a little while ago. My friends were displaying their bikes in the Japanese and Italian convention hall so that's where I spent all my time talking it up with fellow gearheads all afternoon. Then we headed out to go snoop around the riding gear warehouse called Road Rider of San Jose. I remember going to that shop with my dad in my early teens so it's a trip to visit the old store. They have the largest selection of womens motorcycle gear in the West as well.
The turnout to the San Jose Vintage show was just as good as it ever was. I was afraid I would see a lot of the same ol' bikes that I've seen in previous years. There were some familiar bikes but the new ones that I hadn't seen really made up for it. Unless you ride over to the Rock Store or Neptunes you will not see a more diverse crowd of bikes in one spot. Here is a taste of what was at the show. I'll edit more pictures tomorrow when I have a chance. I am really happy to show this bike below! I know you will get a kick out of it. This is not some custom bike either. Besides the paint this is how the bike was built from Honda! More on this one later.

Shame he didn't get the exhaust bolted on properly.
The new 69 CB350 is similar in that every finish looks original on it, super clean engine too, and all of the 8dot bolts still where the assembly techs put them 44 years ago.
Looking forward to more pics.
