I went on Saturday. The show was little too crowded for my taste--I'm not sure I saw everything, simply because it was like Ellis Island circa 1904 in there. With slightly less tuberculosis.
- Interesting that the custom bikes were still showing that super-fat-rear-tire thing that I thought was long out of style. Not many custom cafe racers, which in turn I thought were all the rage these days.
- The Kawasaki H2 was cool, but its specs aren't that much better than the ZX-14, which costs what? Ten grand less?
- The KTM RC390 Cup Racer was great--too bad you have to have a racing license to buy one.
- The Ducati Scrambler felt like my old Schwinn from 1971. I'm trying to decide if that is a good thing or not.
- Though there was no Moto Guzzi display, most of the attendees look exactly like us Guzzisti: old, fat, and white. :BEER: I kid because I love.
- Best demo: the Harley display had a young woman show how to lift a tipped 700-pound Softail and get it back on its side stand. A useful skill for all.
