Thanks for the preview Hal. Looking forward to it.
The Honda preview will be available at the Honda HRCA website around 10PM eastern for those that registered.

We will be posting the photos that Chris will be taking and posting as soon as the show is over and he can get into the big hall to photo the bikes and/or features that are new. He then has to run up to his room and post them.

Do you have any "hints" yet?
I am sitting here at home waiting for info just like you guys. Honda doesn't spill the beans or the beanspiller gets squashed.

But I am looking forward to see what my 2007 ______ looks like.

Lets look at this rationally:

1. Honda tends to work on a 5 year cycle

2. The most new bikes I have ever seen in one year was 4 "new" models. Not just repaints or new gadgets on an existing bike. Bur completely new bikes.

3. So where are the holes in Honda right now? VTX is 5 years old and needs a redo. Gold Wing just got a small redo last year. Honda needs a Mule type vehicle and how about a 2 seat ATV like others have? They need to replace the Blackbird so that they have a big cc sportbike like the Hayabusa or the Kawasaki 1400? Sportbikes are okay but Honda needs to match Suzuki and Yamaha once and for all instead of always being 2 years behind. Maybe a bigger ATV just to keep the ATV dealers happy.

4. Here are my predictions:

A new big cruiser with no Turbo. Probably gonna be belt drive.

Mule type vehicle

New Blackbird

And maybe a new naked sportbike of some European model that has been around for a while.

And maybe some upgrades to the ST1300 to catch the Yamaha.


Thats it.

My e-mail says "at 8:00PM (Pacific Time), the event starts!" which should be 11PM Eastern time, correct?

They must have put you on the second shift to ease the server load.

SPF, You have an '07 Goldwing in your sig block. Are you definately going to buy one or is that the front runner on your wish list pending features and such?

Actually I got my times screwed up. The dealer show starts at 7PM pacific and the HRCA at 8PM pacific. So I should at least have some e-mails from the scene before 8PM.

This is one of the few times that being in the Pacific time zone pays off. The rest of the time, we are 2 or 3 hours behind the curve.
