BTW : If you didn't know... that's Jimmy Lewis standing next to the bike (on the left) with the Tecate logos in the background. It also looks to by Jimmy in many of the other pics as well.

I think he is going out to the Primm area this weekend or next week to spend some more time on the HP2.

Start riding and practicing Mr. Lee... we'll go take a Jimmy Lewis class this fall or in the spring. Then let's see if you think it's too much!!!

My name is on the list at West Valley Cycles. They are going to get info for me as it becomes available ($$ is not even released yet).

In the mean time there are plenty of rumours and speculation here: AdvRider - HP2

You know, perhaps a nice K-80 might go with that HP2. Both are from the Fatherland and are made by factory dudes wearing blue coats. Both feature high-tech Teutonic engineering and modern construction techniques. Both are made from Krupp Steel. Might not be too shabby of a combo there.
