I don’t know this guy, but I know people who know this guy – and I’d like to become much better acquainted. My main complaint with the wealthy mostly centers on the ridiculous things they tend to do with their wealth: $450 mil for a DaVinci here, $200 mil for a Van Gogh there, a gold toilet… if all you’re looking for is a place to store your wealth, why not store it in expensive things you can completely destroy in the blink of an eye?

Wait, that’s probably not the right sales pitch. But if you have a whole bunch of things you can destroy, none of which are terribly expensive (we call that a diverse portfolio), doesn’t it make way more sense to have your wealth stored in things that give you a visceral thrill while you’re still visceral, things that will elevate your heart rate a bit and give your brain a good old workout? Of course, just the term “race track” sends most people scurrying in fear, but it was actually fear of being taken out on public roads that led to Alan Wilzig building his own 1.15-mile road course in his back yard in New York’s Hudson Valley.

Anyway, I for one am jealous. Given a Lotto win, this is pretty much what I would do, though there’d also be a mellow MX track with a trout stream running through it. Probably there is one, just off camera, in this story at todays New York Post. Is there a guest house? I’m not busy next summer.

    Given his opinion re Germany and its products; it’s a bit surprising that he was (maybe still is) a big KTM fan (yes, I know Austria is not Germany).

    • Rocky Stonepebble

      Yer pal, mister Hilter, was Austrian.

      • Walter

        That was my point.

        • Rocky Stonepebble

          I know.

          • spiff

            The man is dead, I see no reason to dwell on him. I’ve been to Austria and Germany and enjoyed it very much. I’ve even seen the “Eagle’s Nest” (which he did not enjoy). Beautiful countryside with nice people. I look to the future with optimism.

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            Yeah. It’s Monty Fu​cking Python. Smile.

          • spiff

            The satire is well done (that does make me smile), but for me the topic is played out.

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            Look … I do not give a darn about anything, or any politics. The Jewish guy in the story brought up the German thing and the whole ‘bad people killed his folk thing.’

            Then, some unimaginative twit went on about KTM and Austria.

            I immediately seized upon an excuse to post a comedic video.

            A MONTY PYTHON VIDEO! It was fu​cking funny.

            If you choose to dismiss talk of those times seventy years back, that is fine. Bring that up with the Jewish guy, or the twit.

            This Scot is posting humour. So, please GFY, and leave me alone.

        awesome. I’ve never seen that MP, and I thought I’d seen them all.

        • Rocky Stonepebble

          Did you recognize the reference in my other post?

  • Alan Wilzig

    What a nice article, man. I love your condensed rewrite , so to speak. All the enthusiast facts , none of the tabloid clickbait.

    I’d love you have you visit this Spring – and really have your own perspective. We’re more bikes than cars as Matt Miles and other mutual friends will confirm.

      I”M IN!! glad you liked our little article.

      • Kevin Duke

        No, me!!! 🙂

        • Rocky Stonepebble

          I’m in Southern Ontario. What say we make it a threesome; I’ll bring a 1990 Rz350N (yes … I win). You guys get whatever crap you can muster.

          If I smush you two (and, I shall) all come back with me to Shanny and the bright lights of Killaloe.

          • Kevin Duke

            If you bring an RZ350, I’ll borrow my new buddy’s RZV500 with R6 front and rear ends that I rode a few weeks ago at COTA!

          • Rocky Stonepebble
          • Kevin Duke

            I also owned an RZ500, my first streetbike. Also had ridden four different Gammas, including one fettled with modern Katana suspension and wheels, plus a Spondon-framed version on a racetrack. Nothing like a two-stroker!

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            For me, they were at the local
            ‘be a goof’ store. No more than four or five kilometres away. How did you get one? (I’m assuming you are a resident of the good old U.S.A.)

          • Kevin Duke

            Bought it when I lived in Canuckistan. One of the ways it was beneficial to live there. 🙂

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            That, and the weather.

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            That front end, with the anti-dive was always the weak point of the 500’s. Mine would go into massive headshake whenever the front came down (which was invarialy).

            Also, it had a sweet spot for tank slapping on the stock tires (140 to 160 km/h).

          • Kevin Duke

            Yep, and the 16-inch front tire didn’t help…

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            Was some exciting though, eh? LOL!

          • Rocky Stonepebble

            Can’t find photos of the NS400r. Another pretty bike, but it was not worth the premium over the RZ350, let alone the Gamma 500.
