Re: NEC anyone???

I'll be there on thursday as well. About 15 of us Americans from the bases will be there, and we're really loud so stop us and ask for Lumpy (that's me) if you happen upon us. Been to the show for the past 3 years and really looking forward to seeing the new 1000 plus new colours for the 750. See you at the show!

Re: NEC anyone???

All I got was a pair of boots, a short chat with shakey, and a bunch of pics. Not much on show this year compared to years past as for new bikes are concerned. The custom bikes were cool, though...

Re: NEC anyone???

Seems like such a genuine fellow. I hope Aprilia keeps on going next year so he can stay in GP's. THat Ghostrider is some crazy shit!!! I may order that online.

Re: NEC anyone???

apparently they are continuing to do moto gp, however the MRO Aprilia RSV Challenge has been scrapped for next season, so expect lots of RSV racebikes to appear on the 2nd hand market, everyones going into Supertwins, the RSV's just can't make the power to keep up with the dukes
