Default Brrrrr

It was in the 70s here yesterday so I had my electric vest and gloves on. I picked up my son shortly after I rode the new machine home so I couldn't ride all weekend. We were doing Easter stuff together.



I might sneak out before I pick him up from school today. I've got a whopping 100 miles on it all below 7000 rpm. OK well sometimes it accidentally goes beyond that.



I think the two Italians in my garage are conspiring to do something evil to the Harley.

Oh, I agree totally. Especially the "I got 145 hp even though the I wet my pants at the thought of actually using it" guys.



Or worse, most of the guys who actually try to use it.



kPaul: Aw, come on. Give the dude a break. His ramming of political views down throats is totally annoying, but he does ride (I think). Doesn't that count for anything?

Hey, that's real nice. Especially for a Harley guy. Must the Italian bikes you own, too. (You west coast guys drink PBR!?) Let me know if and when you're coming in.



I'm going to Florida sometime in June to, get this, ride from Ft. Lauderdale to the Keys with my brother and some friends. Better yet, I, quite possibly, will be mounted on a V-Rod (rental), and, with any luck, an attractive young lady (not a rental).



I don't live or work in Manhattan anymore, but it's not a long trip.

During almighty Clinton's reign, we also had an economy that was, in large part, being driven by a phantom internet/tech boom. A fact which everyone seems to ignore. If you remember, the bubble started to burst around the end of Clinton's last term. And it had nothing to do with what he did or didn't do. It was in many respects, a false economy that was doomed to fail.



The current unemployment rate is the same as the average under Clinton. The polls are a matter of mass psychology. We were spoiled into thinking that we could always have 3-4% unemployment and anyone could be an internet millionaire. Of course some people are worse off now--we don't have venture capitalists throwing millions of seed money at any geek with a hair-brained idea. And please remember that B.J. Clinton was essentially a fiscal conservative, not a traditional Democrat. The best thing he did is to not mess with much of anything. He was just along for the ride like the rest of us. And he still had to be dragged kicking and screaming to balance the budget.



Then Al "Redwood" Gore LOST an election (I don't want to hear he won the popular vote--read the Constitution and especially the part on the Electoral College for the answer to that). We were attacked on Sept. 11, which would have most likely happened if Al "Mohagany" Gore had been elected, too (and was being planned all through the Clinton years). And we know what that did to the economy.



Can things be better? Yes. Are they getting better? They seem to be. Are we still much, much better off than when Jimmy "You're gonna get such a pinch!" Carter, the "new face" of the Democratic party and the worst President in recent memory, held office? Yes, I think so.



Stop crying wolf with your poll numbers and give me a rational alternative argument.



On second thought, don't. Let's talk bikes.



Sorry, Buzz, last one. I promise.

You got him started. We're going to be inundated with his stupid propaganda links for weeks now.



He usually picks one or two people to dog. Looks like you're it.

Default The real misery index...

.. is tied to the number of moronic political links that Kook can churn out/day.



Is that a sort of cost/performance ratio?



Amazing how almost identical economic numbers result in completely different depictions from the press. Clinton's numbers a few years ago were about the same as now. Yet then it was called a vibrant economy. The same numbers today are called the worst since the great depression. Liberal lies and the liars who tell them.



Bad economy? These fools should get Carter back. See how they like it.



Whoops they might. Kerry is proposing to use Carter's economic policy. That should stand your hair on end.

Yeah, I know. I'll take the heat off of you guys for now. He can see my above post. That'll be the last word. He's probably memorizing the entire text of moveon.org as we speak.



Sorry, guys. It just drives me nuts when the sheep oversimplify everything. He thinks he knows what misery is? My parents grew up in the depression. These kooks wouldn't last a minute during that time.

Default Re: How to Buy a Motorcycle Online

I sold a 2001 ZX-12R on ebay after trying unsuccessfully to sell it for four months with a local dealer. I described it accurately and got the price I wanted from it. I made it a point to work with the buyers credit cooperative, introduced them to mine, kept up communication with both parties and all went very well. I also made certain to have the money transferred before I released the title and agreed to him coming to pick up the bike. He lived about 150 miles from me so that part was easy.



Read carefully, don't leap into things without care and ebay is OK.

Nah, they're probably just figuring out how they can surrender to it.



Oh, wait, sorry. They're not Peugeots. Italians (from Italy) are mostly concerned about wine, food and summer holiday.



I'd only worry if they were built in Brooklyn.

How did Jimmy Carter get to be a leading voice of the Democratic party? If I were them, I'd tell the old fool to go into hiding. I guess they think that the public, especially the younger voters, wasn't alive, is too ignorant to remember or don't want to remember what a fantastic disaster his presidency was. I was only a little kid but I remember it too well.
