NYC Motorcycle Show

Tomorrow is the start of the NYC motorcycle show. Big news (for me) is the North American debut of the 2010 Honda VFR1200F with dual clutch transmission

I'm thinking that it's going to be too big to have fun with but that it should be a nice sport touring bike. For once Honda is coming out with bags on from the beginning rather than waiting for years like they did with the VFR800. 

If the NYC show is anything like the Washington DC show it will be a very small and quiet event. One report from DC said that a couple of the manufacturers didn't even have an exhibit and just let their dealers represent them. Harley only had 5 bikes to show.

However, VinMotoNYC will be there larger than ever. They have their own booth this year and are going all out to make a good showing of it.
