Detroit Cycle World MC Show

Well, WOS went to the MC show at Cobo in D-town!

It was ok, never is alot to talk about. But I got some desent pics... I uploaded them to the TWF Gallery... Click Here

And here's some of my favorites!!

1st...is me and some Progressive insurance "umbrella" girls!! Sorry for the quality...I gave my digital to Chev and he didn't take a pic. So I had to take a pic of the poleroid pic! But damn, look at me pimpin some D-town hootch...

2-3...the 10R... love the matte finish!!!

4...Pippi, saying damn what did they do to my GSXR!! She liked her '04 ALOT more... speak up Pippi, you know I speak the truth as it came out of your mouth!

5. Of coarse...Chev straight pimpin it!!!

Looks like a great show. I said back in December that at the Denver show, Progressive had the best staff. And that guy behind Pippi, is he admiring the GSXR seat?

Gas, when my lazy ass gets around to it I will send you the pics I took at the show (for your files). Plus the pic of the guy in the convertable Miata, driving with top down, wearing helmet and it was 20 degrees out!

Yes, true. Still great b/c its a gsxr, look at this Dyno report on the '05 too:

From Ron Ayers Motorsports who just took stock of their 05's
Bikes 4 hours old, broke in on the Dyno.
DynoJet 250i
VP 110

165hp and 82ft of torque!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BONE STOCK!!!!!!

This is the most HP ever seen on the KWS Dyno by a stock motorcycle. Next highest was a 2004 Busa that made 162


But it still looks like **** I think.

It doesn't hurt my eyes as mush as the 03 did. I even bought one of those.
