Default Great read...even the second time around!

I remember this article from 3 years ago, but didn't remember what it said. What a great read, even the second time around!

I don't like the title of this series "It Ain't the Tool". It seems to me that the whole point of the article is that is IS indeed the tool. Just not the expected tool.

That's why I use to like racing my Yammie DT2 Enduro in vintage MX races...use to pi$$ off all those Husky & Maico riders when I'd beep the horn or flash the high beams when I'd pass them in a tricky (read that slow) section. Of couse they'd pass me right back on a straight-a-way, but it fun to be totally out-classed and still place in the top five. Enduros Forever!
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Very good read but until the attitude in the USA "bikes as toys" changes it won't register with the average rider. Oh well maybe gas prices will someday change that.
