I've only got four, now, so I'm willing to do my part for the cause. Besides, I've always wanted one of those crotch-cruiser dual purpose bikes.

OK Tek, so you beat me by fourteen seconds while I was critiquing (damn the spell-checker, full speed ahead!) my own post.

Default Crotch-Cruiser, eh?

I think I saw one of those guys in the men's room at the bus station, but he turned away when I caught him glancing at me...

Did I read wrong or does it actually say demand is going down? Believe CNN wrote this title. 4.9% is less than 6.8% in SC. Is it different where you are?

The article appears to say that demand is increasing and is projected to increase, just not at the same rate of acceleration that it has in the recent past.

I believe what they are trying to say is that the past growth-rate was 6.8%, but the new growth rate will be 4.9%. There will be continued increasing demand (growth), just not as fast as before.

My demand for motorcycles is increasing, too. There are about 20 different models I'd consider owning. Sadly, only one is a Honda.
