OK That's it. All of you who don't have to work or are retired - Shut up! The rest of us are going to slog to work on our bikes like every other day anyway.

Default Retired...Schmired

I am riding to work tomorrow, cause I get paid to do it. Furthermore, I get to do it on any bike I choose, so... na, na, na, na!

The bike is getting the 1st service and a couple of "toys" I don't get to pick it up till later this week.

Note to self, "buy new day runner before July next year"

I didn't say I didn't have to work. I will eventually, unless I win that $140 million tonight in the Mega Millions or hook up with that heiress I keep looking for.



As to macro economics and Fed policy, step away from the keyboard.



OK, I'll bite a bit. For all the Feds words about tightening they have been almost insanely loose in their open market operations. They are simply lying about tightening. The Fed does not set interest rates. The Fed Funds target rate has been rising in response to the market reality.



If the day ever comes that the markets seize up go down to you local dealer and sign on the dotted line. The repo men will be so busy for years to come they might never catch up to you.

I like Shovelheads, mine were both pretty reliable. Standing their with a handful of money while some prick rode off on my bagger was the saddest day of my life.......



If it wasn't for the new K100RS sitting in my garage at the time I'd have shot the son of a ***** and gave him back his money

Maybe like the French, as a show of force we can clog up the expressways with bikes, scooters, go-peds, old CL350s etc. anything on two-wheels that will bring road-going commerce to a screeching halt. Bring our cause to the front of attention.



Vers le haut de la révolution...

I'd ride to work if I could figure out how to get the damn thing up the stairs to the second floor so I could take it from my bedroom to my office ...

Flimsy excuse. You still have time to go to Pep Boys and buy one of those electric pocket bikes.
