Ahh the priveleged life of a washed-up superstar. If Jordan wants to throw his (or Nike's) money at roadracing then I certainly wouldn't try to stop him. It does miff me that I can't have a custom-made set of kangaroo Alpinestars leathers though, at any price (I actually asked), and I am forced to buy their dumb canned color schemes in cowhide while he probably gets his stuff for free. Oh well, my next set will probably be another brand. I hope someone at AS reads this.



Too bad they can't have somebody ride that bike that has a some skill and the ability to actually appreciate it. Just like the old rich men that buy Ferraris, the people that actually get the chance to ride or drive one are the people with the least ability to utilize and appreciate them.

Day off & first post, yahoo!



I went to a race & Ducati asked me to test drive their race bike too. Then I woke up & unstuck myself from my sheets.

I'd not be surprised if, given some instruction and some practice, Mr. Jordan was able to ride the thing pretty well. His eye-hand coordination must be something that only most gifted can begin to imagine.



Now, go out and enjoy riding your iron sleeved XB12R. I assume that your are, after all, a true ferris bueller.

I was reading this thinking "who is Michael Jordan"...then I realized it was the basketball guy.

I didn't even know he rode, guess I pay to much attention to Premier League Football, American sports basically suck. Give me World Rally Cars and Soccer anyday.

I do not reply to these much - because

1. Most of the time everyone is talking about motorcycles and I have no experience in this area.

AND

2. I don't want to be treated like KPaul



But I have to respond to these:



"I was reading this thinking "who is Michael Jordan"...then I realized it was the basketball guy"



The very first sentence in the article says "Basketball legend Michael Jordan..."

Kind of hard to miss if you ask me.



"American sports basically suck"



I hope your breath is not like your opinion - or you need some extra strength mouth wash.

If Ketchup gets elected can he really ever ride a motorcycle again? Is that a huge security risk?
