International Moto Show Review San Mateo

Went to the show here and I gotta say it was a bit HoHum...2 standout bikes, other than the 011 V were the new Duc Diaovel and the Honda CBR250. The Duc just looks like it would tear your arms off and the CBR is definitely going to give the Ninja a run for its money in the starter bike realm...The V is unchanged I guess except for the red paint...
Could have just been me but the insurance companies seem to dominate the floor area...Went 2 days and we were done in 4 hours and that included lunch...Crowds? No crowds...Economy? Maybe...Lord I hope it gets better for the industry...Was talking to the Galfer( brake line) guys and that's all they talked about was how many shops have closed that they used to ship to...They said at least half in the US

For a second I thought the Duc was a bloated Versys. No 1000 Ninja?

These shows are in dire need of a new promoter....

The economy notwithstanding, they've gotten progressively worse (less relevant?) every year.
