all of them. Coming to a city near you too.

For $11 its a pleasant day inside the LB convention center. Free demo rides on most major brands also. Too bad they are escorted rides:( . Lots of geeks will be in
attendance, tough guys that cry and prissy special ppl too.

This is NOT an advert, just thought some might like to know.

Some classic bikes too.

i went to teh SF motorcycle show..

good times.. the scooter craze is the best... lots of scooters > 250cc..

Loved the 599's feel, very very comfy, though why not call it what it is, hornet 600.
The GS500F is awesome....we gstwin.com guys cant wait for it to show up... supposed to have 4 v / cylinder.. vs the 2 v / cylinder that we have now, plus the oil cooler and stuff...mmmmm.

Stand around the GS500F and ppl will come asking what it is, they arent familiar with 500's you see...

Suzuki's strategy to get newbies on to something smaller seems to be working on the showroom level.

Check out the new duc's and the triumphs....

Right now triumph is giving some awesome deals on the TT600 and the Sprint RS and stuff. 1000 off MSRP + 1000 off dealer.. two of the GStwin guys (husband and wife) got Triumphs way below MSRP at so.cal triumph dealers.

Get what your comfortable on GB. I hope you checked out womenonwheels.com they
have been around awhile and cater to the needs you might have, short inseam, etc.

Good guy, my GF rode a 750 Honda in 74'. She has the $$ for a new bike this spring.
I'll stick with my slow but fun Guzzi for now. I hope&pray I never lose the love of M/Cs.
I know of guys in their 70's riding side hacks. I missed it this year, but every October
a sidecar rally is held at Griffith Park. Its like a side show of motorcycling. :)

Sorry for chiming in wwaaayyyy late, but where have you heard this. Everything that I've been hearing has said that it's still going to be a parallel twin??

And the great deals with the Triumph TT600 are because they want to make more room for the Daytona 600

Cycle World had an blurb about it on the 2004 model year preview...

We guys at gstwin.com did what we could.. I got the pics online.. there are bolts where things arent on the present gs500 and there seems to be things in there which will fit the theory of it having 4v per cylinder.. its still a parallel twin, but just now with 4v/cylinder vs 2v/cylinder. I think the new bike has a exhaust based fuel pump and a TPS relay sensor and a couple of more things..

we did our probing with fingers and lights, and without tools on teh show floor we got enough info.. so I stand on the fact that there are changes, and unless we open it up we cant confirm the 4v/cylinder, but there is something fishy going on in there, and its quite possible the rumors are true.. esp with the tighter emmsssion standards for 2006.
