Default The future of the GPTB!

The headline says Baby Boomers defect to trikes and then they go on to interview a 77 year old guy who is most certainly not a Boomer.

Oh well, I'm sure the print media gets the important stuff right.

Tell me you didn't actually expected anything but misrepresentation from the newspapers. Oh wait, I forgot. Outright lies and black propaganda are what is now called "journalism".

I could see a side car outfit like a Ural Patrol or a restored Servi Car or something. I'd rather drive than ride a trike

Um. Not to be trite, but the GMP posted the exact same article on the CW website. Has Buzglyd been hacked by Kpaul?

Maybe his blog sends a spyware program onto the reader's computer.

Of course, I'm a Mac user so that's an awful lot of effort to spy. Maybe his cage is lined with the San Diego Union.

As a genuine Baby Boomer, YOB 1956, motorcyclist, I'd like to state that I would prefer to have my testicles shredded off with a plastic fork versus ride a trike. If it comes to that, I'll just take the damn car.

a nice '08 ragtop Mustang GT would be fun or a Land Rover Disco 11 or Sport, even a Toureg would work...I've always wanted a WRX Subaru, a trike wouldn't do it for me I'm a-feard

GM's supposed to be coming out with Bytchin' new Camaro in '08 or '09.........

Lottsa' nice stuff out there, my gearheadedness extends to 4 wheels just as much as two......
