EICMA: Belle Ragazze di Milano

Apparently, sexy girls sell motorcycles.

Or at least that's what the vendors at EICMA tend to believe, as every major manufacturer hired models to showcase and pose on each of their bikes
The new Suzuki’s 2015 return to MotoGP racing,  GSX-R1000.
This girl looked pretty happy on a cafe racer-ed BMW K Bike (I think). 
Love it or hate it, the MV Agusta Dragster is definitely unique. 
 I don't think I've seen girls this pretty riding cruisers in real life, but Victory owners can dream...
 The new 2016 Multistrada 1200 Enduro
 New Ducati XDiavel. Note how far the footpegs are forward.
 This Ducati DesmosediciRR MotoGP bike actually belongs to Andrea Dovizioso.

2016 959 Panigale

 Ducati's new entry-level racebike is now a litre-bike (...shaking my head a little).

 I have a number of friends with 899's and most of them agree it was plenty of bike, but Ducati took the 899 engine and bored it out to a 959cc displacement, increasing the horsepower from 148 to 157.
 This awful looking exhaust will only be present on the Euro models, as American imports will have the typical exhaust, ending at the bottom of the scoop.
The Panigale is a beautiful bike, but Ducati's "bigger is better" mentality (1300cc anyone?) doesn't always seem to be the most original innovation.


Buonasera Milano!


East Coast November at Hawks Nest

I'm exhausted, and I should be packing for EICMA in Milan in a couple days, but even though my eyes are bloodshot and my wrists sore, I know that I won't put this up unless I get it done tonight, even though I was riding from eight this morning till nearly eight tonight.


One week till EICMA 2015 in Milan
