So since when "pi$$" is a swear word? Where exactly in Tijuana did Gabe buy this screening software? How much of the budget was spent on Marlboro super light and women of easy virtue?

Default Well, it is a retro-bike...

I think it's supposed to look old, don't you? I guess you're comparing it to the Ducati Sport Classics, which have much more classic-inspired styling than the Bonnies, which are basically 110%-bigger old bonnies. When you park them next to the old bikes, you have to do a double-take. Nobody's going to mistake the GT1000 for an old bevel-drive twin!



I think these bikes are going for different markets. The Bonnies are for guys who have romantic dreams of having an old Britbike, where the Ducs are for those who like simple, modern design and know (or care) little about the old bevel-drive ducs, except maybe in an abstract, "old bikes are cool" kind of way.



I think the Thruxton looks sweet (especially with the painted fenders), but I did my time riding vintage bikes and don't really want to go back!

Default Oh, yeah...

You're absolutely right. Last year's Stratoliner intro reception was held in the banquet room with the Winestein bar mitzvah, which doubtlessly saved Yamaha and Mr. and Mrs. Winestein on both the band and the caterer. However, disaster struck when Brad Banister slipped on a piece of lox and dropped the chair holding Mrs. Weinstein while they were dancing to "hava nagila".



Yamaha has offered to settle, but it looks like the law suit will drag out in the courts for a long, long time. The result? Triumph served only dark rye and bialis, hence my confusion.

If I can't have sex with the lights on I just can't be with her.

With any luck I'll be buying a boat on Sunday. I don't know if that qualifies as excitement but I'll have fun anyway.

You mean if I don't like the curve I'm not allowed to throw a smaller CS sprocket on there and lower the gearing?

You're getting another Harley? You knew I couldn't resist with a LOL from KP.

You're baiting him with LOLs.



I'm looking at a 22ft cuddy cabin with a Yamaha 175 outboard. Nothing like a V6 two stroke.



I want to take the boy fishing in the ocean with the occasional Catalina run. Maybe I'll drop a wakeboard tower on it for some serious air!



I sold my old boat quite a few years ago so I'm ready to dump some more money in the ocean.



Decent boats are cheap right now.
