You do impressions!?

I thought you were a 'serious journalist'!

I haven't seen one. In pictures, it looks like a HD FXR.

I'm looking forward to your article!

We got that here, too. It's been so cold at night, We've had to throw an extra Global Warming denier-criminal on the fire.........

Probably the first useful thing they've done in their lives......

The Arrow/Brembo/Ohlins bike looks sweet. I'd like to see a Thrux with the alloy wheels from the SE.

Uh, I'm pretty sure I'd rather be riding it in the hills of Barcelona, even if it might rain here. Now it's breakie and then riding!

Duker,

DO NOT miss an opportunity to visit La Sacrada Familia!

Sagrada FamÃ*lia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An extraordinary church designed by Gaudi. His style gave us the term 'gaudy'.

The church is one of the most amazing things you will ever see.

Except, of course, what you'll see walking along La Rambla.

Sadly, no time this trip to visit the fantastic (no hyperbole) La Sagrada Familia, but I did get to tour it a few years ago. It's one of the most amazing man-made things I've ever seen. I toured La Rambla yesterday. Cool place! Although I didn't need to see the stark naked 50-year-old man riding a bicycle...

BTW, the T-Bird was better than I expected. It's a good handler, has an uncanny V-Twin-like feel and a surprisingly sorted suspension for a cruiser. More next week.
