Roadfly Invades SEMA 2002, continued
On Wednesday evening, we found ourselves at the DUB Magazine party, which was hosted by Tek (MTV’s Real World) and Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray). The party was held at a club called “The Beach”, which was located across the street from the SEMA show.

The parking lot was full of exotic cars, all of which were rolling on some impressive dubs - I think the smallest wheel I saw was a 22” wheel on a Ford Lightning truck; otherwise, it was 23s and 24s across the lot. The entertainment for the evening came compliments of rappers Redman and Rakim.

The party was interesting; however, it wasn’t a whole lot of fun. The venue was much too small for the amount of people at the party, and the layout wasn’t very “concert friendly” - the stage was very small and the balcony didn’t offer much for improved views.

To make matters worse, there was an extreme shortage of females at the show, so after snapping a few pictures and downing a few barley pops, we took off for the casinos. The music, however, was very good - Redman and Rakim sounded great, and had an impressive stage presence. It’s just a shame that the venue was so overbooked.

Once again, our fellow Roadfly member showed us a good time on the town - we went to a bunch of casinos and ended up crawling into bed at around 5am...

On Thursday, we split up. Bret and I went over to the AAPEX show, while Charlie and John (RevHigh) went back to the SEMA show. AAPEX is held at the Sands Convention Center, which is located adjacent to the Venetian Hotel and Casino. I wish we would have had more time to spend at AAPEX and the Venetian, as the Guggenheim was presenting their motorcycle exhibit at the Venetian.

Alas, work prevailed and Bret and I diligently hoofed our way through the AAPEX show.

The first thing that I noticed was that AAPEX seemed to be laid out in a much better manner. The aisles were wider and the booths appeared to be more product oriented (instead of focusing on flash, they focused on the products). It was also interesting to note that several manufacturers had booths at both SEMA and AAPEX.
