Where's the black version??
That was all they had at the show.

I did get to sit on it. It feels vastly better than an FJR, but better yet I'd love to ride one!! I am only 5' 10" but the GTR/Concours is definitely going to be good for riders much taller than me.

I'm 6'1", so that works for me! :mfclap

BTW - Added another bike to the stable this weekend. The wife picked out her destination bike - an '06 Kawasaki Mean Streak which we picked up Friday night.
Now hers is bigger than mine - 1600 cc's of performance cruiser power! :scared

Well here's the first pic off the civic.

I'm convinced that the black gtr would look great next to it on the driveway.

Unfortunatly the pics i took from the black GTR on the motornews weren't much of a succes. The were displayed in a corner against a wall. Not much of an contribution.

:banghead A hybrid will set you back a cool € 24.500,-- or $ 32.500,-- excl the options.

That is with an extra low tax because of the environment.

We pay around 50% tax on a car and fuel costs $ 7,-- per gallon.

Yeah, we lucky guys ;(

I expect the new GTR to be around 19.000 euro (ie 25.000 usd)...

Everything is so much more expensive in Netherlands. Are you guys making a lot more than we do here in the US? :)
What are some typical salaries in Netherlands, let's say, a hardware or software engineers? (At least that are the fields I know)

Here's a list i picked from the site but a lot of functions can be translated by using a bit of imagination for instance hoofd means head.

http://www.elsevier.nl/survey/onderzoek/asp/surveyid/18/positie/10/knooppunt/1208/index.html

An director IT makes in average € 76.500
Senior advisor IT €72.500
programmer € 44.000
Hardware specialist € 41.500

a carpentar € 28.500

etc etc. As you can see our welfare state means we don't earn big bucks but do have to pay a lot of taxes.

Income tax:
> 50000 52%
> 30000 42%
> 0 32%

just an indication

What was differance in egos compared to the FJR? I rode a '05 FJR for a weekend and was hooked on the sport touring class.
