My dad insisted that I stop riding motorcycles immediately. Glad I didn't listen to him!

I think they should disconnect the back brake for the MSF class and then the 1st 3 months of ownership. My unnamed riding pal STILL uses only the back brake, and this is after having put his Road King into a guard rail after entering an exit ramp a little too hot. Every time I ride behind him I want to scream....

Oh Yeah? Well once global warming kicks in and the temp goes up 30 degrees and the seas rise 20 feet, I'll be living right on the beach! We will see who is laughing then!

I'll still be laughing because I'll own beach front property also! It's Buz, Ken & Pushrod who are going to be treading water.

I was lucky to have a rabid motorcyclist for a father, guess we can't all be so priviliged....

30 foot rise in the Pacific would, gimme a hell of a view. I've been wanting to buy a boat too, oddly enough.

That would be very bad... water level rise that is... I live in Pittsburgh, the whole city would be under water. PPG building would be pretty cool looking though.

Yes, but...

... every cloud has a silver lining. Washington, DC would be under water too.
