!! Warning: temporary thread hijack !!

Nice Road Glide you got there, love the color. Assuming that's yours, looks nice with the full tourpak setup and the engine guard fairings (whatever they're called).

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread...

I'm surprised to see so few Motorcycle Consumer News subscribers. No advertising, and they really feel like the only mag not just shilling for the manufacturers. I also get Rider and Motorcyclist, but don't think I'll renew.

I think most here subscribe to MC mags just to read about motorcycles, but take what the test riders say with a grain of salt. It's nice to get a general opinion of what these bikes are like, but no magazine (cept MO!) will influence my purchase of any bike in any way. I will go test ride the bikes I am interested in, and make that decision alone. I read the mags more for entertainment value rather than sound advice. Let's face it, no matter how 'objective' some people may be, or seem, we all put our personal preferences and prejudices onto everything we touch.

I used to work with this guy, had something like this happen to him. He related to me that, he came home one day, the front door was wide-open and smoke was POURING out of the house. Thinking only that something had happened to his Wife, he rushed-in blindly. Much to his surprise, he was tripped and fell flat on his face just inside the door (first clue something was "not quite right").

She (or one of the boyfriends that helped her) had driven spikes deeply into the wall, and stretched a rope across the doorway between them. This was after they'd stripped every single thing out of the house - including ALL of his clothes and personal belongings. The smoke was from the woodburning stove - they'd removed a section of the pipe on the way out - as a literal smokescreen. The new sedan he'd bought was in the garage (the only thing - all his tools and shyte GONE), but they'd removed the wheels and tires, and the drivers-seat.

He found the "Dear John" letter in the kitchen when he was searching for the phone to call the Police, when it dawned on him - OMFG! THE BANK ACCOUNTS!

Cleaned out.

The previous day.

Over $25,000 in 1984 money......

When he had finished relating all this (we were both working ~$6/hr jobs in '91), I asked "WHY did you ever marry this woman in the FIRST place?" (she was 10 years his senior)

"Ah, she had big T*ts, and that really impressed me."

Meh.

PS on yourself, Buttwipe. Speaking of which, that burning and itching you've been talking about? You may want to aak the pool boy what he did to clear it up...I'm pretty sure that's where it came from. Or the lawn crew. Or the gas station guy. Or your brother. Or your Dad.

Youse guys are disturbing the board too much now. Time to settle down. I want you each get a piece of paper and write on both sides "How to keep an idiot busy all day. Turn this page over for the answer." Now study it. There will be a test next week.
