    The Expo was "OK" just people showing wears... no sales. I wanted to find a good set of winter gloves but no one was selling.
    I did sit on a 2018 Yamaha Super Tenere and a KTM 1290R.. and I want both of them. HAHAHAHA

    Anyways. here's some pics... (just from my phone, no cam today)

    My primary interest yesterday was taking demo rides on a Vstorm 650 and a FJ-09. The Vstorm was peppier than a NC and the seat was comfortable, but no more room between the seat and foot pegs and the riding position was very straight up. The FJ was really nice: no knee or hip cramps, ok seat, not bad wind screen, very zippy, nice suspension and brakes. The only real issue is the grips get very buzzy above 4,000 RPM, and even in top gear that's just over 60 MPH. I rode around on some of the back roads here in Dublin and the NC is much smoother in the 70-75 MPH range. Disappointing; I was really looking forward to a SPORT tourer.

    If you wanted to buy gloves, why didn't you just go to Iron Pony?

    I wanted a "Show deal"

    I did try on a set from one manufacturer which was nice as I now know I take a 4X in their gloves.. my dumb hands are huge... usually can't find gloves that fit.

    That Benelli looks like a pretty nice bike! Some other good looking rides too. Still, I took my daughter on a 350 mile, 8 hour ride on Saturday and had a great time. Arriving home she was disappointed and said that we need to do more long rides. Yes we do, yes we do!!

    I see they had Kenny Roberts bright yellow Yammy there! I remember as a child watching him and Barry Sheene duke it out with the 1979 British Grand Prix being especially a fine battle between the two. The leadership kept changing back and forth before KR pipped BS by less than half a second!!

    Not many sales at the show but plenty to look at.

    I didn't get this booth... I'm not a prude or an uptight person at all. In fact I'm usually the trouble maker, but the stripper booth made no sense in the setting it was placed.
    Their products were so far removed from the "booth" I didn't;t even know what they made.
