If Honda would go ahead and buy Harley this need never happen again.

After all that "I'm leaving" drama he was back within minutes in another identity. We'll see how long it takes everyone to figure it out.

He'll be too busy waiting in line for an iPhone today.

Now for on content info. When I was a kid, my dad took me out in a field (back when LA had fields) to ride my XR75. He brought my sister along to watch. She said she wanted to ride the bike. My dad asked, "you think you can just hop on it and ride?" She said yes and climbed aboard.

My dad helped her ease out the clutch in first gear and she promptly pinned the throttle. He was dragging behind her hanging on to the rear of the frame behind the seat. She was WFO screaming and crying.

My dad was finally able to yank the back end sideways enough to make her crash. She didn't ride anymore after that.

I bet she wasn't wearing a helmet.

Does that help?
