The Fed said the economy has recovered and everyone has a job that wants one, so they are raising interest rates to squelch the overheating economy to preserve the value of capital markets. So you must be very lucky indeed not to have to work.

I used to ride to work occasionally, but this year I decided to sell the touring rig (which I only used for 'touring' once a year) and buy an old VFR for fun and light touring, and good ol' CB750 Nighthawk for going to work. It's been great, riding every day, the CB has been flawless, even though its 14 years old. So 'I'm living the dream' every day, or at least until I get to work...

Too bad it's not a glider, or you could land on 1 wheel and call it a stoppie

My old BMW air head works just fine up here in the 110F heat of Red Bluff. Try puting on a long sleave T-shirt under your mesh jacket. When your soaked it will keep you cool for at least 30 miles. VWW

Shovelhead owners are intimately aware of the relationship of work and motorcycles.



Ride to work. Work to ride. Owning this $%$@#$ piece of cr@p is a nothing but work!

Just make sure you wear insulated boots.



Wait a second. I park the water-cooled bike and ride the air/oil-cooled buffalo when it gets in the 90s/100s too. Hmmmm. And I keep hearing how superior water-cooling is. Too bad they boil me so much worse in hot weather. What good is a "superior" bike if you can't ride it?

Great idea. I have noticed my back and waist stay wet.
