Well, we aren't greasy psychopaths smoking weed and beating each other with chains and tyre irons anymore, so I guess that attracts more moderate people.

If I could just hit that big Power Ball jackpot, I'd single handed help to boost these sales numbers!



I'd have one of everything from Aprillia to Ural.

I would mostly like to get my hands on a GP6 powered Duc!!!



Then I'd build my own track!



I need to wake up now, don't I?

Yeah, especially the part where he refers to American Iron Horse choppers as "high-performance" motorcycles. Oh well, at least he is maybe the only journalist to realize that we are a very diverse group of people.
