You have the location wrong on the Jan 4 - 6 show. It is in Washington, DC at the DC convention center, not in that other Washington.

Oops! Looks like Langston will have to mow my lawn this week!

They bring some sort of the show to Bike Week in Daytona, but it's really pretty lame. Nothing at all like the show in this article.

I see Suzook has a new 250 naked. Not a bad little bike, it sorta looks like a Baby Busa.

The water-cooled GS is interesting. I saw a diagram of the water-cooling passages, the water circulates only around the top of the cylinder, covering the top couple inches of the piston, nothing else. I guess that's what they mean by "precision water-cooling."

I was hoping to join fellow Mofos at this event.

Alas, I was in FL boozing it up with fellow fleecers.

And you didn't call, you didn't text, nothing.

We're through, Mister. This time I mean it.

I was in Tampa. That's a long drive to give you a sponge bath.

Way cool! I missed the kick-off show in Atlanta, so I'm probably not going to make the show this year.
I understand Triumph is into the IMS bigtime this year, after not being there at all for quite a while.

Which Twisted Throttle LED light kit ("for ADV's") was featured? I didn't see anything special on their website.

It's their new Denali kit. Pretty impressive; even on a fully lit showfloor, we could see the beam of light up on the ceiling of the convention center ...
