2018 Long Beach Bike Show

Spent a few hours at the show yesterday, and per a few requests and my own interests, here are a few photos, I've got a bunch more, just haven't had a chance to upload them all, if you want to look at all that I've uploaded so far, they're here, http://www.i-bmw.com/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/1934. As for me, I indulged myself in a custom molded set of ear plugs with speakers, from "Fit Ear" and they should arrive in time for Christmas, I'll let you know what I think when I've used them a bit. So here are a few photos to start, since Bruce asked for these,







yeah, yeah, you know who you are!











and just one for now, more when time permits. Enjoy.

The new RR looks great. It just might be good enough to let me ride like I really know how.

The new lights on the S1RR look so much better than the asymmetrical lights on the previous generation S1RR. I'm going to the International bike show in NYC 30 November so I'm looking forward to seeing all the new bikes.

I agree the lights are much better but honestly I couldn't care less. As soon as I get the bike I strip all the factory lights and plastic off and put race fiberglass on.

I have not been to the show in several years - typically I walk away disappointed and driving into Manhattan is a pain. However I just may make the journey to remind myself why I don't go - maybe this year will be different that would be a nice surprise.

Re: 2018 Long Beach Bike Show

Funny, but the paint and busy-ness of the RR in the first three photos you posted hurts my eyes. But, thankfully, you eased up with photo four with smooth lines and nice curves.

You've got a real eye for photography, Craig.

I bought a pair of custom molded ear buds with speakers too at the IMS show a few years back from Fit Ear & love them. I splurged a bit & paid some crazy big bucks for them & they're still going strong. Listening to music with them is pretty incredible... got a free pair of solid ear buds with my purchase too.

You'll love 'em Craig!

My H1 was Kawasaki green. Much better looking than the awful blue.



As for this year's model... I've seen better...
