I was to the Seattle show Dec. 1st with a few friends and enjoyed the
As you said, I found much the same thing and had similar impressions when I
The Ducati display was a sharp setup, but was just a zoo, one entrance /
exit in a confined space, not my idea of fun.
The Norge I had seen before at the local dealership. Definitely a contender
on my list too. Used to have the Honda CX650 V-twin and liked its
character. The Buell 1125R was a trick looking unit. That cutaway display
was really cool to look over and see all the internal workings, etc. I have

Here are some of my thought FWTW...
Top three bikes (for me) at the show:
1) MotoGuzzi Norge - probably the eventual replacement for the GPz1100,
2) Buell 1125R - Wow, what a bike.
3) BMW F800ST - Very clean, tight, balanced design, handsome
1) No concept bikes,
2) No V-Max. No sneak peak...
3) Triumph - Once again, a no-show at the show
Interesting bikes I would never buy
3) Victory Vision - Still looks like a cartoon to me. Better looking w/o
the tail trunk, but still too George Jetson
