If I could only ride with it still on the bike, then I woudn't have to worry about my 100th anniversary t-shirt flapping in the breeze and getting all wrinkled.



On the other hand, if I cranked the fan up enough, I could feel like I was really riding...without leaving the comfort and safety of my garage!

Hmmm. Lemme guess, you really sent this as a back-handed way of asking where in the heck is this long-ago promised 5 bike shoot-out, right? What was it, 8 days ago that we were told that the MOrons were burning the mid-night oil to finish up this review so they could publish it? Maybe someone should head over the the MOron Hq and see if the staff mistakenly lit the wrong type of oil and accidently destroyed both of their typewriters, and all of Sean's sunglasses.



Cheers.

You expect us to believe that you found a Harley add-on that only costs $269.00 ?

This is nothing new and has been sold for a while by aftermarket companies. Many car people use similar items to store their classic cars. Actually, when the $100,000.00 BMW Z8 sportscar came out, a local dealer had it displayed in his showroom in a 'bubble". Keeps the masses from laying their greasy fingerprints on it. Actually, it would be good for storage here in the North during the miserable winter.

Products like this sell because there are a lot of people out there who have not confornted their own mortality. What's the point of having a bike thats in better shape then you are. The world is a place full of

time passing. No bubble is going to stop that. Bikes should only be clean after they are washed. It's the old argument of material possesions verses experience. I'd rather have the experience of making that bike dirty and there are quit a few Harleys out there that have had there share of dirt put on and taken off. In fact considering all of time past Harleys have gather more dirt then any other bike. Nice try Jane you ignorant ****

What do ya say we all take up a collection and buy one of these for Mrs Paul to stick KPC in.



We could probably save some money on the fan because with him in it, it would self-inflate.

Does this mean I have to scrape the 1/2 inch of road crap and chain munge off my bike or can I store it as is.? ,,, Wait a minute! I've got a "heated storage facility" right now, I just call it a garage

There's not much point to washing a bike in the winter around here, It'l just get filthy again when I ride it tomorrow.

Actually I just hose it down with gas when I fill up, then ride around in the rain,- Degreaser+rinse+plus air drying,- Bike cleaning northwest style.

Do you get a bunch of greenie weenies following you flipping you off as you ride? Or do you easily pull away from them because they strictly adhere to Seattle's 55 mph speed limit?
