Checking it out now. Went there a few years ago....I was most impressed with all of the Chianti available in the cafeteria. The tour as a whole was quite impressive.

It was just the usual glitzy marketing-speak stuff, unfortunately.

It was still the best thing on at 8pm on a Saturday night. Calling the Multistrada 4 bikes in one was a bit of a stretch, but a friend of mine called and told me he had his Harley listed for sale 3/4 of the way through the show. It spoke to at least one person.

Amazing how differet we are...I take MONTHS of research, reading, comparing, looking, etc before I make up my mind on a big ticket item. Never would have envisaged someone would watch a TV program on a manufacturer's product and immediately decide to buy a bike!

I DVR'd it, and watched it today. I liked the show. My only criticism is the 4 bikes in 1 thing. To me, that means it doesn't do any of those 4 things exceptionally well.

Speaking philosophically, I often wonder which person is actually happier:

Person 1 (me): Thinks about things a lot. Wants to know how something works, what could go wrong, and creates a set of personal criteria for what the "best" bike would be. Basically mulls it over to death and realizes at best their decision is going to be a compromise.

Person 2: Holy s***! That thing is cool! How much would they give me in trade in? I'll call them in the morning.

Now that I write it out, I think I know the answer...

1985 Honda VF1000R, 1990 Ducati 851, 2000.5 Aprilia Mille

LOL, yeah...but at least WE tend to avoid the NEXT morning...

"Holy Shit! This thing doesn't fit me at all, and can only do 150 miles on a tank. Have to sell it right NOW!"
