Default My Humble O

I suggest you don't work on filtering content. Some people will use it without really understanding what is going on, then complain when there is 'nothing new for the past 2 months' because they have limited themselves to 'Green Touring Gasgas bikes with suicide shift and Power Bucket Reclining Speedometers' through a filter. Even if I'm not interested in an article, at least seeing something new posted lets me know that my precious $12 hasn't been spent on a box of wine and smutty magazines.

Please, shrug off people who tell you what kind of bikes to review. Keep the variety going, because if you're old enough to ride, you're old enough to figure out which articles you want to read and which you can skip. That would apply to Burns' off-topic columns, too. I disagree with most of what he says; and, having learned that, I can skip his off-topics in the future.

I hope I have presented my opinions in a well-reasoned and adult fashion.



ps. More wimmin! Yee-Haw!

Default Re: A Red Ryder Ranger Rifle with a compass in the stock...

I agree 100% Well, almost. While it's fun to lust over the newest bikes that most of us can't afford, more 'real world' info would be great. (Cost of ownership should be at least as important as cost to buy) Also, tech specs seem hard to come by on the net so more=better. As for an Interactive list of places to ride.....seems like it'd be too hard to do on a national level. my 2 cents

And what about Babe content. It hasn't been updated in a long time. Riding and babes go together like Gin 'n Juice, right?

Default Re: And the point is...

I really enjoy the bike comparos......would like more .

Some product comparos would be neat(e.g.:touring tires)

More MX coverage and dirtbike(offroad and dual purpose)would be greatly appreciated.

Bring back the babes and "Breakin the law"I miss that cartoon you started-----what the Hell,I go to this site for fun !

Oh and less I forget,your one vintage bike feature was great.I know nmost subscribers arent into vintage but a once a month vintage feature(racing one month,street the next )would satisfy those of us who are without boring the rest.

Default start a riding skills series

It would be great if you could have a riding improvement series. I only get a new bike once in a while, but I always want to know how to ride better.

Is there any such thing as an off season in LA?

Try January in Seattle. Or February in Colorado Springs.

I like the bikes under $2000 idea... I own several of them, they clutter my garage, and I need more.



This is the greatest statement I can remember hearing about motorcycling in a long time.



Rats Rule.
