It's a fun article, though I don't know how much it promotes motorcycling.



Ending the article with "Within a few minutes, I was experiencing five different dimensions of pain — everything from a gnawing sensation to the feeling of flesh being speared by bone" seems to be an odd note to leave on as this is exactly why people try to lecture us on riding.

Good Eats meets the streets. I love Alton Brown's cooking shows and like him even more now. No big deal about bikes being dangerous, even after he snapped a collar bone. The main focus is on the ride. As usual, Alton has good taste in bikes equal to his good taste on Good Eats.

Default Good or bad.

He has to be a better motorcycle spokesperson than the OCC gang. Got to love the BMW posterboy from an epicurean standpoint. It just wouldn't be the same on a V-rod.

I love watching this guys show. He tells the sicence behind the cooking. He has a lot of great input regarding some stuff you would never think of - and he's kinda funny as well.

I did know he rode - but he never mentions it on the show. Oh well.. maybe he will stop by for some great KC BBQ - and then we'll show him the twisties.

I did a biz trip like that myself one time. I rented a Geezer Glide in Charleston, SC. I rode up the Blue Ridge parkway to visit a client in Blowing Rock. Then it was down to the Pisgah National Forest for another meeting. From there I crossed SC to Myrtle Beach for my final meeting. I was wearing a tie when I rolled up. The guy I was meeting with said, "Only you would do something like this."



I closed the deal that day.

Was it cold riding while wearing nothing but a tie?

Did you have trouble with your tie and ponytail getting tangled?

As a matter of fact, he rode the bike, with helmet on, in one of his shows. I can't remeber which show, but it was cool.

No, the wind swirling behind the windshield tangles the tie in my long, gray beard.
