So I went and took the hour and a half train ride to the big city of New York to see the Cycle World International Motorcycle show http://show.motorcycleshows.com/IMSBrandManager/v42/index.cvn
I have attended 4 out of the last 5 years and was able to see some new releases before they made it to the dealer floor for instance my 04SE. When I saw that from across the room it was love at first site, the lipstick red while very nice didnt hold a candle to that EVIL black machine! I had set my mind to it and ordered mine about a week later.. I have also been able to see new bike launches by Honda and other manufacturers. This year Ducati had their new Thruxton
type "Sport Classic" bikes.
Nice, but its not an S3
Other than that it was pretty quiet.
Actually I was very dissapointed to see that Triumph was NOT
there... I think they missed out on showing the normal HondaSuzuYamaKawa guys and girls what good design is, and whats avalable if they just look over the hedge a bit. I also was looking foreward to spying the new 675, and of course they missed out on the guys like me who went to the show and purchased after seeing something they couldnt live without!
