    New York International Motorcycle Show

    I was at the New York International Motorcycle Show today.
    At the Honda stand everybody was looking at the new Goldwing, there were three of them on the floor.
    There was only one Crosstourer - red with a regular clutch. Nobody was interested in it. I asked a Honda rep if Honda USA is planning to bring 2018 models of Crosstourer to USA and he said that he doesn't have such info.
    It's sad but it looks like Crosstourer did not become popular enough in the US and I am afraid we might not see 2018 models here.

    Thank the motorcycling press for that one! Also thank our fellow motorcyclists who like sheep follow every word these so called experts spout when they review a bike, I personally stopped buying "Motorcycle news" last year after a comment made about the Yamaha S10 by the resident second hand bike expert  :112: if it's not made by BMW or Ducrapi they dont get a look in!
    Not having a disposable income, or retired and living in Tenby ( Go on bite ya bastid  :001: ) I have the luxury when buying a S/H bike of trawling the owners forum for a true evaluation by the owners experiences, and not by a journalist who's pen is fuelled by the number of freebies the manufacturer of the bike has stuffed in his pocket!
    We are manipulated in our everyday lives by one form of media or another! But the bike forums in my mind are a safe haven for free speach and an unbiased opinions and not influenced by marketing, and I hope it remains that way! it's just a shame their not used as much as they should be, and if people stop using "Faceache" as much they could be!!!!  :152:

    I have to agree on the Ride/Bike magazines, I get fed up with having BMW shoved onto every page. Equally frustrating is Honda and their reluctance to keep up with other manufacturers on the technology front, especially with the resources at their disposal.
    160 bhp please Honda. :001:

    The trouble is all of these publications are owned by the same group. MCN/Ride etc - KTM and Triumph are the new article leaders on every page - they obviously bung the papers more cash that the rest atm.

    I am discontinuing MCN and Ride as its the same garbage in there all the time. :232:
