On this first post I have to give a plug for Lee Park's excellent gloves. I've used a pair since spring and I'm getting ready to order a pair with insulation to get me through these Georgia winters.

Is the reference to 'Jim McMahon' as 'Vince McMahon' a joke with a meaning so absurd or under the radar that I just don't get it? The former was a Bears quaterback, the latter is responsible for the horror show known as the WWF.



Other than that, I advocate the scooter coverage.

With a sub to MCN that goes back to Jan. '93, what a pleasure to see Lee Parks in the saddle again.



I'm not quite ready to get a scooter just yet, but my preconceived notions have been adjusted recently....on Saturday my brother and I were taking a break at that church on the n. side of the Russell Scenic Parkway. Several Sport Touring bikes - FJR, ST13 and GS12 whirred by - being chased by a Burgman 650. Bro and I were more than a bit suprised by the pace.



I think that when I'm finally superannuated, I'll still be able to squeeze in more riding years.

Hey, a sub is only 11.95. You want proofreading? That'll be 39.95!!!! [idea cribbed from the late, great Lewis Grizzard]

And I thought that Yamaha was going to be a 15 foot long monster with a Vmax motor...what happened?



Little skinny wheels off a Kymco Chiapet...And I thought the production model sported tail-fins.



I am not impressed. Think I stick with my Heinkel Tourist thank you...

I like a Salisbury better with its constant velocity tranny. Or maybe a Powell or Cushman. If you think the suspension was soft, just try a Powell (hard front, REALLY soft rear that bounds up and down). I only like ultra modern stuff.

Could've called him "Ed McMahon".
