Excellent review. Using my KPaul logic, I am sure longride is much faster in this jacket than his usual HD gear. He even looks good on that rented Ninja. His beloved Harley must of been in the shop that day.

Default Oh Longride, Longride, wherefore art thou Longride?

It did seem as though our friend Longride had gone missing as of late -- I had a few days where I did not check in so I thought perhaps I had missed some news, but apparently we are all in the dark regarding his whereabouts.



Oh yeah, sounds like a nice jacket, but I think it would have been a better service to us loyal MOrons if he had crash tested it for us! Are we just supposed to take his word about the sufficiency of the protective pads?



On a final note, he looks nothing at all like what I had pictured -- no grey ponytail, no arm chaps (guess they wouldn't go with the Kawasaki jacket anyway). Are we sure he didn't hire a model to pose for the photos?



Regards

Bob



ps Longride, let us know where you are.

Ditto on that last point - however, I didn't picture a grey ponytail or arm chaps, either.



Also, looking at the background reminds me why I left Chicago. Yuck.

Yes, I agree with that point- there is a lot to do there, I just never wanted to go out between November and March to do any of it. Chicago is a great place to live in all the other months- probably one of the best in the world.



What I miss:

-The People ('cause they rock)

-things you can do both in the city and the burbs



What I don't miss:

-relying competely on a car for four months of the year

-warming up my car for 10 mins. before driving it after scraping the ice off of it

-yuppies driving at 20mph on the highway on an inch of snow in 4WD SUVs

-the dressing ritual before going outside

-shoveling snow

-the two month bruise on my ass from slipping and falling on ice (I'm kind of a klutz)

Chicago BLOWS! Suburbs or not. It has worse traffic than DC even. And having lived in VA all sorts of delightfully curvy/twisty roads were within EASY grasp. Here there is jack squat! And the weather is for the birds! hmm, actually even the birds aren't stupid enough to hang around.

Default He's on a trip

Last I heard he was on a trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Christ you're a big bastard.



Are those porn star mustaches still popular in Chicago?

Well maybe I'll run into him on the road then if he went to the Black Hills. Even though I'm on the eastern side of the state and the Hills are on the western side

I don't know but my guess is he took his Electra Glide. I don't think even longride would take a shovel head on a 4000 mile trip. You'd have to rebuild the top end twice!
