It barely brushes the surface but it's nice.

I'd love to hear about more if you're able to expand on the subject.

Thanks,

Hmm, let me think about it, Pete. I may be able to come up with some leads, at least, once I'm done with the @#&%$ taxes!

I find the subtitle to the headline to be in extremely poor taste. If I'm saying that then it must be bad.

Well, it could have been a lot worse, how about:

Beyond "-------!"

Beyond "------------!"

Beyond "----------------??"

The real point to me is that we're still paying attention at all. Sort of like it p.o.'s me when somebody asks my race on a form, who gives a crap anymore?

Sachi, edit at will.

It barely brushes the surface? What more is there? Women are participating in motorcycling in ever increasing numbers. So what? That doesn't come as news to anyone who has been riding for more than 2 years. And who cares, besides the manufacturers who want to sell more motorcycles? Maybe ya have to be a woman who has never piloted her own motorcycle to find some significance in the information presented in that article--but I have to believe there ain't too many such women who are ever gonna read it. That leaves the rest of us (men and women)--which returns me to my earlier questions: What more is there, so what and who cares?

Oh sure, it's fine and good to say "Kill Whitey" all day long, but try saying "Kill Women" in a crowded room and see what that'll get you.

You think that's bad? Just wait and see what a tomahawk chop Paco666 is going to get any second now.
