No, that was Colorado, and the Governor did in fact veto it. Thought four seasons was a bit extreme.

What I need is some suggestions for good *SMALL* gloves. I have very small hands (for a guy) and find it almost impossible to get anything other than a summer weight or woman's glove (fingers too long and/or small diameter) that doesn't just hang off my hand like a rag. What companies make REAL gloves in sizes SMALL or X-SMALL, and I'm not talkin' MX gloves for the kiddies...



Anyone?

Not going to complain too much myself, MO has some great stuff, and I respect the effort and time put into the longer features. "Filler" like this is dangerous for a respected publication though, as it can quickly lead to blogification. Witness the recent reduction in average article content in Popular Mechanics. It starts with "filler" and leads to the idea that these short, low content articles are a good way to conduct business...



My suspicion though is that the guys are out doing interesting things, putting together a big story and just needed *something* to post.



Prove me right guys!

I can't figure out why someone who apparently hates everything about MO keeps paying for a subscription.

No that wasn't Utah. Utah is the place where the legislature did pass a law regulating the maximum size of the Great Salt Lake. And the Gov did sign it. It was very amusing watching the County Sherriff trying to arrest and handcuff the lake in 1983......

My Olympia sport gloves only lasted about three years as well, abiet with more than 15k miles. Pretty disapointing, my TourMaster Elite three season gloves have gone 15 years and at least 200k miles and are just now wearing through. Still warm and dry though, unless it rains.



I'll probably buy some leather work gloves for the summer, being a cheapskate and all......

I think it's the same guys that profess to hate Harleys so much, but always tell tales about when they were in the Harley dealership. I always found that those that do the least in life complain the most. Combine schitzo KPaul with RonXX's anal grammar compulsion, and we end up with Eddie44. Nice combo to be sure.

This whole brouhaha between me and Mr. Hackworth started when I made a mild derogatory comparson with his helmet review and the one that appeared in Motorcyclist Magazine at about the same time. He went nuts and showered me with abuse like some loco douche bag. If you want to look for neurotic behavior around here I suggest you start with him.

I never considered anyone clever that critiqued something that they claimed not to have read. VWW
