Re: Muhaha International show tommorow!! seattle!

The wife and I are taking the cage in from Braindead Island. We'll be at the Honda booth at noon and near the beer garden at 2:00pm.

I'll be easy to spot. I'm the dude that will be on the floor laughing at Honda for not putting the 1k on the floor for us to check out!!!!!

This is me from last year..

This year we expect to see a photo of you dragging your knee on the new Fireblade while it's rotating on the platform, Holeshot! Have fun at the show.

Re: Muhaha International show tommorow!! seattle!

I'm going to have to pick my battles. I either hop on the blade or fornicate with the new Mille Factory as I don't think they'll let me stay at the show after either stunt... :/

BTW, it was nice meeting you guys at Goodwood. Really, it was the most interesting conversation I'd had the entire trip!

The pleasure was ours - it was great to meet you. Glad you made it over to Boise. Next time bring the bike and we'll really have some fun!

MC show.. eh....

Sounds like a plan re: bringing the bike on the next trip - after the I-90 passes thaw out a bit though

Man.. Honda really laid a turd on the MC show. Not only was the 1k on the rotater but both RC's were up there too.

I did have an interesting conversation with one of the reps. I guess in 1998 there was some federal law passed that banned race-rep paintschemes on US bikes. The basic deal was the desire to band the Smoking Joe's repliracers because tobacco is baaaaad.

I've not researched it and I don't know if he's got his head up his arse but that might explain why other countries can get certain repliracer graphics and we don't (or why Ducati only sold the FILA 999's over the internet??). Plus didn't I read that the RC51 replicracer for 2004 comes with a decal *kit*? Hm.. so that's how they get around that law.

So basically.. they had to put the RC on the stand because it's not sold like that in the US? Plus I heard the CBR1k at the show was a non-functional prototype bike.

Sheesh.. how totally dissappointing. All the manufactures were making excuses about bikes not making the trucks and the selection of cruisers seemed overwhelming.

Yeah.. if my wife had not picked out her own bike (really one of the driving reasons for going) it would have been a *not-recommened* by me.

I did see some VERY skantly clad ladies, far more than last year.

But having the wife find the F4i the best fitting of the bikes for her (GSX-R600 the next best) and see her excitement about learning to ride this summer made it all worth it for me.
