I wish bike shows in the U.S. had as much gratuitous female flesh as the European shows. We don't get all the hot bikes the Euros get either! We Americans get the shaft (or belt as in belt drive-ba dom bom) on everything! I may have to move back whence I came.
Is this show open to general public, or an industry only event? I'd love to go next year if the dates become available. Even if I had to look at butt-ugly crotch rockets, it would still be worth considering. The beer is better too.
Hey MO, I know I sound like a prude to you but I allow my children to view your site and I would appreciate it if you would not place the partly "naked" people on the home page picture for all to see. Even if within some story please give me some warning. I'd rather not have to "censor" a hobby and website so dear to my heart. Thank you.
I knew a comment like this gonna come sooner rather than later. Just a note: motorcycle shows in Europe like that everywhere, even in Germany. Partially naked chicks everywhere, you can drink and/or smoke on the showroom floor. Oh, and it's a family event. People with their kids and wives having fun. You don't have to block the access from your kids to websites where they can see perfectly healthy, young, delicious girls in bikinis... That's just human body, very pleasant for the eyes. It is not porno y'know...
But, then again: I didn't see fully dressed ( boxers on guys, one piece bathing suits on girls, which shows as little as possible ) people on beaches, only in the States. Well, I haven't been in India...yet.
And yes, you're prude. But that's okay, I guess. I feel sorry for your kids, though.
I agree with the post above in answer to 'semi naked flesh'. I pity the woman's kids. The girls are wearing at the least a bikini.
My kids wouldn't even consider this weird, or rude, or bad, or the work of the devil, they wouldn't even give it a second look as it's natural. OK OK, my 16 year old boy does give it a second look (and a third and fourth - did I corrupt him by letting him see girls in bikinis as a baby? maybe??), but I reckon that's also natural.
And yes, it was a public access show...
Perhaps you guys stateside should worry about other 'moral' issues, like world starvation, holes in the ozone etc etc...
I am not sure what "not gauking at partially naked women" has to world starvation or ozone holes. Your definition of "moral" issues shows a lack of scholarship. Moral issues deal with one's (individual)character and comportment while the two issues you mention deal group or societal dynamics.
I only ask that the website not put pictures on the home page that can be viewed as "offensive". After all we are motorcyclists not harley riders.
Could you please explain, how the sight of a girl in bikini can be offensive? I guess you would restrict a movie showing horses without saddle on 'em as PG17, because they look offensive to you, right?
Ummm...last time I checked, Harley was considered as a motorcycle...not a good one, but still a motorcycle.
Besides, hereby I want to reserve my rights as a non-Harley rider, to see naked girls.
As the "lack of scholarship" goes....don't even go there...'cause you'll feel very embarrassed. If you know what "embarrassment" stands for.
Less flesh, more bikes. I couldn't even make out that MV Agusta beneath all that flesh. If I want babes I'll go get me some. Yes, I realize sex sells, but if you're trying to sell something and you need sex to help you, that says something about your quality. On the otherhand, when you seperate the world superbikes from the world superbabes, that suits me just fine!
So please, less flesh, more bikes.
PS can we have an IQ requirement? Those four MV Augusta chicks looked about as intelligent as that harley cab.
PPS who and why the heck was that bikini-clad woman mooning the chump? can we caption that picture "pointless"?
I thoroughly agree with the above statement. My 12 year old daughter is in love with motorcycles and reads the reviews in MO. I don't think she needs to see half naked chicks. I personally would have liked to hear about the bikes we can't get in the anal USA.
Don't listen to any of these prude ninnies. Their kids probably see more sex and flesh on MTV than on here. If they don't like the pictures they have the option of not clicking on the link. Simple as that.
Yes, some of those bikes at the show were cool, but those girls kept getting in the way! I also found it highly offensive the way they were groping and fondling those proud two wheeled machines...Have they no shame?! I mean what is it with motorcycle shows where they feel the desire to showcase scantily clad women, bearing all but their breasts and bottoms to the general public. Large round breasts and firm tight bottoms all over those conservative motorized vehicles. What blasphemy...When I look at motorcycles I dont need to see large, round, fertile breasts thrusting forward impudently towards the camera or tight curvacious bottoms begging to be spank... UNGH! sew gewd.
Your picture-link from MO's main page was completely tasteless. This is a "bike" show, right? So why don't I see a bike? Why do I just see some woman in a skimpy bikini sticking her derriere toward the camera? It's fine to have those pictures in the article, but I come to this site to read about bikes, not have pictures like that thrust in my face.
