Motorcycle Live NEC
« on: November 20, 2018, 10:19:49 PM »
Has anyone else been this year, I went yesterday with a couple of pals and thought is just seemed a bit flat this year, it was very quiet, very few exciting new bikes and it all looked half empty.

 :461: Lots of manufacturers "new bikes" were there last year. And too many manufacturers seem to be targeting our hipster friends with bikes for occasional posing and little practicality. The only benefit I can see is this target demographic keeps the industry alive - just as long as they don't put all their eggs in this one basket and do keep developing more purposeful models for the rest of us.

By the way....Did anyone get a haircut / beard trim at the barber's shop on the Harley stand?

Bloody Hell!!

I'm going on Saturday, not been for a few years now, the last time I did go it was good.

Were there any deals in the leathers / Helmets or accessories areas?
Ive given up asking rhetorical questions. Whats the point?
