If Harley brought that Sporster here, I'd look at it pretty seriously. That's what they should have produced a while ago.

A few things:



1. It's amazing the lengths that BMW goes to make its bikes so ugly. You've almost got to admire them.



2. The exhausts on the KTM (come on, you know which one) look like they were taken staight off of a Peterbilt. If that's what it takes to gain a few horsepower, call me Mr. Underpowered.



3. Please do not let the Chinese manufacturers anywhere near the BMW and KTM booths lest they get any bright ideas. Their stuff is aesthecally dubious enough.



4. That is not a Suzuki MotoGP bike.



5. The new R1 looks better than the new GSX-R 1000, but neither looks as good as the "old" models. I'm sure they will both kick much ass, though (as if they didn't before).











Disclaimer: I'm sure these are all wonderful bikes, but if we didn't ***** about something, this wouldn't be MO.

The cars now, too. BMW's attitude is soooo German - "You vill like zis, ja, because it is correct to."

Nice, well worth 99.5 cents. Heck, you can find that much just lying around the grocery store parking lot some days.



Now my question. Has anyone ever tried to develop a motorcycle that can fly with light glider wings attached, perhaps even cantilevered out from the riders shoulders?

I liked the photos. I've been to Intermot before and this really brought it to life sans the sore feet. Keep it up.

Believe it or not, it was done back in the 70s. A couple of guys strapped a Rogallo-wing hang glider to a CR250 and launched it off a ramp. The last I heard, they were going to find a way to power it and circle Evel's Snake River Canyon jump.
