LONG BEACH, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Dec 7, 2005 -- Motorcycles are all the rage across the country right now and especially in Los Angeles.

The Cycle World International Motorcycle Show is set to cruise into the Long Beach Convention Center this weekend (Dec. 9-11) and provides a plethora of exciting stories for you to consider:

Hot New Bikes

The Long Beach show will be the biggest ever. This Friday, we are unveiling seven U.S. bike debuts, never seen before in the United States including the Ducati Hypermotardconcept bike, Ducati Monster S4Rs, Victory Vision 800, BMW K 1200 GT, Honda VTX Techno Cruiser Concept Bike, and the Vespa GT250.

1 Out of Every 10 is a Woman

More women are switching gears, from the safety of cars to the freedom of motorcycles -- 1 out of every 10 riders/owners is now a woman!

Motorcycle Fashion

Biker wear is all the rage. Longtime biker brands have found their way into mainstream shopping venues. Come learn about the hottest new fashion trend -- rider wear. From biker boots and jackets, to shirts and custom leathers, the show will house all the latest in motorcycle-inspired clothing and accessories for riders and non-riders.

Biz Story

Motorcycle Sales Soar -- recent release from the Motorcycle Industry Council states industry in-line for 13th straight year of sales growth. Third quarter is up 16% over same period in 2004. Scooter sales are up 65%.

Scooters - All the Rage

Scooter sales are up 65%, but no one is swapping out their car for a scooter. Consumers are adding scooters to their vehicle line-up. Scooters are a new tool for transportation lifestyle.

Technology Story

Motorcycles are becoming more automotive as automotive technology trickles down to two-wheeled vehicles.

Say Dean, since you have this connection with your former dealership, San Jose BMW, maybe you could quiz the reps at this show (I assume you will be attending) on when the bike will go on sale, pricing, and maybe take a few pictures of the bike(s). Folks her seem to be interested in a few photos of the GT w/o the bags attached.

Also, anyone going earlier to the Long Beach show, any new information might be interesting, as well as pictures.
