My Long Beach IMS pictures

Went up there on Saturday. Rained me the whole time except for the first stint between San Diego and Hwy 73 (toll road). At least I got some COCO's Japanese Curry on the way home. Yummy!!!

Overall I wasn't too impressed with the show as a whole. Nothing there that you could get for cheaper than anywhere else. I bought two SHM10 mounts to make some Earmuff comm systems for the Miata when I'm going top down but that's cause they happened to be there. The manufacture displays were all great and the Ducati booth had the most scantily clad ladies /> haha. J&P Cycles weren't too bad either.

The new V-Strom 1000. Not sure what I think about it. Kinda ugly IMO.

Starting of the new Indian motorcycle and the required revving of the engine lol

The Batman "bikes"

Giant Slotbike track

Suzuki Rotary

The new Harley "Waterhead"

The 42,000 dollar water quad

Probably my favorite custom bike there

I went up there from SD too, we only got rained on for the last 6 mi or so. Not too bad. The show was ok, there were a lot of nice bikes there, we walked the whole floor one time so we could see everything. Then went to the demo ride area and spent the remainder of our time trying out the bikes. I got my $11.00 worth!

I would go again, and probably will next time.

Ah, should have paid attention to the date for the show. Would have loved to go, rain or not! Anyway from the front I think your right, however don't think my K7 Vee will win any beauty contests either...Any news on an anticipated release date or MSRP??????
