  3. Just got back myself. I was nice to see such a big turnout from the manufacturers. I was actually expecting it to be much smaller, so I was very happy.

    I think they could have done with a few more accessory stands though. And the cancellation of the trial display was a bummer.

    Nice night out though, very happy.

  5. Mrs Tree and I went last night. Was great to see so many bikes in one place just beggin' to be sat on. As choppa said, some more accessory stands would have been good.

    Not having tried out any late model bikes before, I was blown away at just how light they are!! The ZX-10R and ZX-6R felt like I was riding a pushy compared to my big girl! Even the ZX-14, with is only 20kg lighter than mine, felt like it was a good 50kg lighter. Must have a really low centre of gravity.

    Mrs Tree fell in love with a 1200 Beemer. Must say, it was damn comfy!

    The stand-out bike of the show, though, would've had to have been the B-King. That is the ugliest piece of motorcycling sh*t I have ever clapped eyes on. Right now, I hope some designer is locked in a tiny room, getting the crappers flogged outta him for penciling it.

  8. Maybe if you saw his sorry bucket'o'sh*t at the moment, you'd change your mind!!

    I do like the B-King in your photo, maybe up close it won't be as nice... I'll have to find out... They did steal the headlight design from Megatron - arch nemises of Optimus Prime

  9. Sunday was excellent. The Trail display and the Motocross display was f***ing Awesome. I really don't understand how those guys doing loops on Motocross bikes can even sit on them with testicles as large as theirs must be. I saw Vic at the Netrider stand (at least I think it was Vic,) I guess by Sunday they had had more than enough of people coming up and saying "Hi Im a netrider member?)
    Bike of the show for me

  10. We didn't get the see the jumping. The truck with the ramp(s) had apparently broken down. Only got to see the trials, which, as you sad, was f*cking awesome. :grin:

    Got a pic of that bike, too. Nice, hey???
