I haven't exactly looked to see if anyone did this yet but I thought I'd offer my thoughts on the Show in NYC this weekend....

The first thing I did as I walked in the door is sit on the new ZX-10R and let me tell you, I cannot believe how light it is....reportedly 375 lbs dry with a whopping 183 hp...fit and finish were amazing

gotta get me an orange one....A+ for team Green

D- goes to the Jacob Javits Center for dealing with the mob scene around the OCC clan....I happened to get caught up in the zoo and couldn't squeeze my way out for a good 15 minutes....

btw...these guys don't have to build another bike for the rest of their lives...all they have to do is sell t-shirts...I should have taken pics of all the losers decked out in OCC shirts, jackets, hats, and probably underwear too...

I couldn't see if they were filming at the show....but Season 2 kicks off tomorrow night I think....

I did hear someone get on the mic and tell Pauly to quit kissin' on Whitney and get back to work

HEY, get off MY bike!!

Ahh, just kidding...

I wish I had a 10R, Orange was my 1st choice but that Blue is dam sexy aswell.

As for OCC, you're probably right about the t-shirt biz... It's amazing what Discovery has done for their popularity over the past year or so. I'm not a huge H-D fan, but I love a good custom and they've sure put out some great ones.

F that.....I like the show, I dig the bikes.....but I'm not about to hop on the bandwagon and get all decked out in my OCC gear....OR wait on line for two hours just to get a glimpse of them....

I'd rather check out someone like Indian Larry who's a little more willing to say hello

I have also found Jesse James to be a great guy as well. I met him at his shop and he seemed to be a very nice and genuine person.

Is it just me, or was the Show the most crowded in recent years?
Maybe it was the O.C.C. guys, the line to see them was ridiculous, not that I wanted to see them, I saw them there last year when the crowd was only at 40 people, they sure got popular.
Anyway, first bike i sat on was the ZX10, WOW I couldn't believe how light weight they have become,not just Kawasaki but mostly all the liter bikes. I left early, too many damn people, but I did get to check out all the bikes.

Jesse James will be back on a chopper show soon. He filmed a show with Kid Rock. They started their ride here in El Paso, TX (far southwest corner). They hesded south into Chihuahua, Mexico and filmed along the way. They ended up on the east coast of Mexico. He was filming a copper bike that he built.
