Re: Long Beach Show
Sorry I missed you. I was there on Saturday.
* Breakfast at Long Beach BMW Motorcycles.
* Motorcycle Show most of the day.
* Late dinner with the LD Riders / Iron Butt Association at Pinks in Hollywood that night. (They do it every year, everyone is welcome. You can see lots of great bikes farkled with the latest gadgets for rallies and long distance riding.) I saw lots of friends, but would have liked to see you there too.
If I were to give this year's Motorcycle Show a theme, it seemed to be: "Year of the Cutaway Engine"
Everywhere I looked, manufacturers had cutaway engines. Yamaha had at least four different ones. There were cutaway engines at Ducati, Harley, Victory, Indian, etc. etc. etc.
Speaking only for myself, I enjoyed looking at the cutaway engines.
I wish I had a cutaway engine of my K1200GT for reference when I an doing repairs. It would be helpful. :-)
