Thats a really eclectic selection of bikes for a preview!

Its great to see the R1s standing next to Bullets, right across from Vintage BSAs, home-grown choppers and the rare Husky too.

For a "first year" event they sure do have a lot of things on the menu, and seem to be doing it big too. Interested to see how it turns out.

I hope there's a very large road safety push along with this event too.

So it turns out the turbine-powered Y2K bike will be present.

I remember Jay Leno (who owns one) saying that he revved it up at a traffic light once, and melted the bumped of the car behind him.

I recall watching that video. He says its dicey to ride because of the throttle lag (it take a few seconds to react after you shut the throttle)

It used a engine from a helicopter

ACI report suggests that crowd was generalized on the basis of bikes they own. This bit doesn't came as a surprise to me.

Everywhere you go, you would be treated on the basis of how deep your pockets are. No one cares if you really love Motorcycles.

Spot on Mate, no second thoughts. HD being the prime sponsors ensured that their owners/patrons parked their bike in covered place. The show was more of a HD SHOW rather than a biker's event.

What irritated more was to see the plight of classics & vintage motorcycles that were left to soak up the fury of Mother Nature in open. They deserved better treatment.

Suppose this was a money making exercise and it was more of a B2C & B2B setup. Not something that you would feel bad about not being there.

Probably the only saving grace was one could get to see the Y2K Bike.

Yep, the bikini babe bike wash to soothe the bike

I am suprised that there is no report of IBW on Tbhp.

Me and some friends thoroughly enjoyed the IBW guys. Was in Goa since the 1st to the 4th and the vibe was great. The first day things took some time to warm up, but the second day was really chilled. I will be there next year too for sure. Bikes and bikers of all types and varieties were there. Old friends catching up. Live rock bands through the day and MMA bouts. Good food and the sea on the horizon. Bars everywhere. Bike wash and detailing. Merchandise. Flea market. Guitar srumming and singalongs. Modded bikes. Project bikes. Old bikes. Old bikers. Young bikers. Middle aged bikers. Born again bikers. Posers. Hard cores. Hippies. Tattoos. And all of this in GOA. What else was missing? It was a great show put up by the organizers for a first time effort. Exactly what we need. Look forward to many more bike manufacturers joining in next year and opening their pockets.
