International Motorcycle show - San Mateo Expo Sat 11/17 ~ 9:30 AM- 5:00 PM

Some of us will be the IMS show on Saturday.  Some on Sunday.  I'll try to be there both days.  Look for us near the ticket entrance around 9:30 AM.  If you arrive later, then find us inside.  Weather permitting, ride your bike because it's easier to park.  Otherwise drive/car pool.

(2) Now the next deal ..... Custom Ear Plugs and Speakers

Many of you have seen Marilyn at the Int’l Moto Shows and/or at the Races. She is the earplug lady behind “PlugUP” brand name. Marilyn is a certified audiologist who knows her stuff and makes superbly comfortable and high quality ear plugs. I have been using her ear plugs for 6 years.


Marilyn will be at 2012 IMS in San Mateo (Nov 16-19, 2012). If you are serious about getting a custom earplug, pre order on web site using discount code "GRSM" which means "GroupRides price for San Mateo IMS". You'll get a fantastic price on one the most comfortable custom earplugs or speakers there is. I own other brands as well, some costing 2x, but PlugUp makes the most comfortable custom ear plug. Believe me, when riding, a comfortable fit is everything.

Here's how to pre order:

Visit :

  • Select the custom product you want (earplug, speaker, S Plug).  Fill in order form.
  • When submitting your order, use code GRSM, see example below.  Click APPLY.
  • That's it.

    At IMS show in San Mateo, show your ID at booth. Get an impression of your ear. Then go and enjoy the show. You're done. Your custom earplug product will arrive in the mail. S Plugs orders can be picked up at IMS show :-)

    Why pre-order? Pre orders save Marilyn processing time and paperwork during a show and because of it, she gives special incentives to have all the order processing done earlier, and NOT on the show floor. You'll save money and time as well.

Below are special pre order prices for 2012 IMS in San Mateo. 

Tax is included and shipping is free for GroupRides pre orders



IPhone S PLUG: $135

Marylin will have S plug demos to try at the Races. The S plugs can also be upgraded to customs at any time. The wires are reused and a credit is applied towards the upgrade.

Not sure about getting a custom ear plug right now? Go ahead and get an impression of your ear. It's free. You'll have 5 fives years to place an order.
