At the same time on TLC they had "Worlds Greatest Motorcycles" and a very nice piece on MV Agusta's F4. I switched back and forth for the first hour. The TLC show had my attention for the most part. Then I watched the last hour on History.

I agree with you. The show on TLC was better. The whole history of the Britten was the best part. A true visionary forever lost.

The Britten got a brief mention on the HC show, too. As far as I can recall, though, the names Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha were never uttered. They couldn't ignore Honda, though. And yet it was mostly Honda's effect on HD that was covered. And the "trivia" segments just sucked. The whole show was "The History of Motorcycles in the USA for Non-Motorcyclists, as seen by Harley-Davidson".

Default Re: no evolution of the sportbikes

funny you mention that.........in england the top sellers are all CBR's, YZF's, and ZX's.........with a varadero or other trailie thrown in. And in England, bikes are used MUCH more for daily transportation.



I think it is because, although not long travel, the suspension is usualyl much better then on any other bikes, you get decent weather protection, the riding position on many (honda, kwak) is not all that extreme, and the quick, precise handling and ability to manuveur right NOW make them great for traffic

Actually, I rode thier Blast, and I agree 100%with the review MO gave it a few months ago. I do admit that they have some very radical features on their bikes, and wish the jap bike makers would introduce some of thier own. That said, I still think they look like ****e.

Default 2 hours and so little covered.......

What about trials, flat track, enduros, GNCC, casual trail riding, even roadracing and performance road riding, ferchrissakes. Not everybody's a one-percenter wannabe.
