Excellent article
 
I agree with 03zx12r, this guy is great. He rides for the fun not some group thing.. Definitely, a great example for the public.

I'd like to see Rachael Ray out on some hot asphalt, and then in some driving rain. She's one smokin' cook.

Another pension successfully plundered! You need to ride in pirate garb and have a dagger in your teeth when you go on those raiding excursions!

Just rode my KLR650 to and from a conference yesterday. Zipped up my Aerostich over my suit (no tie) and arrived less wrinkled than I thought I might. Need better looking boots, tho.

Mix in a H-D puffy shirt (tm) and I'd look like the Buccaneers old logo.

Alton is the man on my favorite network. After one of his x-mas shows, I have brining every fowl animal that blesses my kitchen. If my employer would let me out, I too, would ride to meetings. As it is, my 85 mile round trip daily sojourn is the best reason to get up in the morning: rain, shine or really cold.

Glad to see that he has followed my lead with a RT.

A little empty up top (not brains)

Well, then, the sensible alternative is Sandra Lee. I'd watch her boil water.

Rachel is pretty cool. I would love to take her as a pillion to one of my favorite places to eat. C'mon, get your mind out of the gutter!

Get a bag for a real pair of shoes. I ride daily and leave two pair in the office (That's what that big drawer on the bottom is for.) For road trips I strick a pair in the hard cases (I have a BMW 1100RS.)

I ride to meetings very frequently. Once the folks get used to you showing up on the bike, it ceases to be a big deal. I have noticed that people are less willing to be confrontational when you show up on a bike - even a BMW. That's not a bad thing. ;)
