Ya think? Seems a little overdone to me, but I guess everybody has their own taste.

The new Multistrada shot wasn't too flattering. It looks kinda goofy from that perspective. I do like the way they put the open space around the rear wheel with the hugger, but in that shot it's almost too much. Can't wait to see one in person.

Funny how some things never change. The best looking cleanest bike there is that Rickman Triumph TT.

Supposedly Triumph will support Dealer exhibits at the IMSs, but they have not been a Corporate participant for several years.

Not that there is a show anywhere near here. Apparently there is no motorcycle market in the SouthEast.
