Honda 1000RR

I want one

Did anyone like the bike show? That Triumph RocketIII is BAD ASS!! That thing's got a damn tractor motor in it! I didn't think the show was all that exciting, but at least it gives a chance to check out and sit on all the new models and stuff.

I went to the show and enjoyed it. I want all of them, lol. It was nice to sit on them and make vroom vroom noises. Gotta give honda the lazy ass award. several of the bikes still had rain water marks on them from when they were wheeled in to the show. Came home and started to work on the GPZ. 48degrees by the weekend, whose riding?

did you notice how wide the tailsections got to fit the silencers inside on the new blade and r-1? i dont know if it was worth it or not. not like im getting a new bike for a while anyways but i hate how honda screwed up the lower fairing. for them to do that means the alterative had to really blow.

I totally agree Carlos. What was Honda thinking? it looks like they forgot to finish the bike. It would look so good if they painted everything right

GPZ .. I agree with you also. Those bikes looked horrible. I heard at the other shows that you couldnt even sit on a Honda because they only had the display one. The red R1 had one of the fairings scraped down to the white plastic and it looked like a 2 year old fingered it all over. They didnt even keep them wiped down. I asked the Yamaha where the New tricker pro was also and he had no idea? its supposed to be in production already.. what the hell?

and I dont even remember seeing the Yamaha 2 wheel drive off road bike they are making.. maybe I just missed it in the vast expanse of motorcycles on display
