Default Fast track to a funeral

I ran across this article with the above headline on the the LA Times website. I especially liked the quote "Riders say the Kawasaki ZX-10R can hit 110 mph in first gear." Really tells you what angle they're coming from.

Does anybody know where can I get some hulking for my Harley Davidson? It must be on the 08 models because I can't find it in the 07 P&A catalog. I can't be the only hulkless Harley rider at Bike Night tonight.

There's plenty of hulking available at your local Honda dealer. Just check out the ST1300 and the Goldwing.

I like quotes and statistics when they fit my bias...

Why can't we all just admit that there is not one safe bike out there? Sure, some bikes may present some riders with different risks, but it's a trade off like everything else.

Oh, this is just great for Kalif bikers.(snicker) Down there in the land where libero-fascist politicans are constantly itching to "do something". You guys are royally screwed. Just watch and wait. Now, where did I put my popcorn popper.......
