I've been suitably shamed into believing desiring more is wrong and hurts dolphins.

That was a sincere LOL!

No, I consider 300 mile range a breakthrough.

About the same time the rising seas drown NYC. Another 10 years.

The BMW GS with a beak has been around long enough that I don't really think there's much to get used to with this bike. It might have been polarizing a few years ago, but not now.

Blake Conner at Cycle World managed 72 mpg on a tank. All I can manage on the freeway out of my 27 hp Royal Enfield is 65 mpg. I kind-of wish I would have waited a year to buy.

What Buzz can't seem to comprehend is that there can be both, and that there is tremendous value to all of us to have more than one solution to a problem. Fer'instance, E-Bikes don't threaten or take anything away from our sport, they just broaden everybody's options.

I'll have my boys in DC mandate a second car and then someway, you'll be able to afford it or will receive a fine in the mail.

When your wallet outperforms your gums, I'll be on board.
