My eyes tell me this is the one for me. My ageing body says NO NO NO!

I like the looks of that one too, but just sitting on one in the showroom told me "NFW."

Oooop this is true, and they've been shopping it around since last year as well...

Yep, and we hear about it nearly daily here at work. "when are you getting one"? is a typical call.

We're waiting for a dealer show, to see if they're going to build it...although with all the tech bits on it, they're either going to have to dumb it down for production or it'll have one HELL of a price tag.

And you think a BUELL exhaust heats up your right leg??

That was precisely what I was thinking when I looked at those photos. I swear, before a motorcycle is released to the public for street use, the designers should ride one in bumper-to-bumper traffic on a summer day before making their final decision.

I wonder if it would sell better than the XR-1000 did?

WOW! Seems like everyone has sand in their netherparts. I'd even suspect that some of you may even have a pearl or two...

I don't know if it's lack of riding. But if it is, I rode my XB12XT Thursday so that I could get it inspected in order to renew the registration. I should've ridden it yesterday, but there was supposed to be some big rains coming - that I think still haven't even made it here. Oh well, one grain of sand for me - already shaken out.

I know this will probably increase the grain of sand count for some of you, but it definitely fits into 2018 Motorcycle Porn - and it DEFINITELY isn't a concept.

SAND ALERT (for some...)!

But nothing said it had to be street legal, just 2018 Motorcycle Porn.

Maybe the above will soothe some, or maybe will induce a different kind of sand...

Sorry if I came across as sandy...not my intention (if that was directed at me).

The FTR1200 is a street bike concept, based on the (as you note) currently-existing (and race-winning) FTR750 race bike.

I guess I should have phrased it "anxiously awaiting the dealer show" (to find out if they have production plans).

And you know I don't have heat complaints about any of my Buells, Brankin...but I posted that for those who do. : )

That's Jeffrey Carver's new FTR. It will be fast, I'm sure. There are a lot of top racers who'll be on Indians this season. Coolbeth, Johnson, Carver, Wiles and maybe more as well as Mees, Smith and Baker; who are riding for the factory.

History is repeating itself. Indian is doing what Honda did in the 80s. They built a fast bike and bought fast riders and they'll probably dominate flat track for another year or two. Unless Vance & Hines figures out how to make the XG 750 R competitive. With the new frames and new DOHC heads, they might just be able to run with the FTRs. I'd enjoy seeing that. In less than a month, I'll have a pretty good idea of how the updated XG will run. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming season.

In the meantime, there are a lot of Kawasakis that could be made to go equally fast. Brian Smith was almost untouchable on the Miles before Indian got in the game on his Kawasaki. It would be pretty neat to see a few of them in the mix, as well.

Yeah; that induced some sand; also some crushed limestone, clay and the perfect mix that comprises the surface of the Springfield Mile. In 25 more days, the season begins, and I'll be there to watch it!

I don't want one, but I give props to the Indian not being just a restyled Scout.

Looking forward to a test ride on the Beemer.

Of all the bikes so far the only one that I like is the concept Indian.
It's more "my style" bike

I saw a City Cross today
There's something about that XB9 engine that just makes me grin
I really do miss riding

On the Indian...I'll believe it when I see it in street form. Most of the exciting concepts and racebikes and up a bland street machine.

Not "sandy," just realistic.

The BMW R9T Racer - that's a bad sign when you look at a picture and start mapping out in your head what you'd do to it...

I know exactly what I'd like to do with it. Can you hear the sound of flushing?
