Oh boy, you're "FIRST"!

Now go away.
Nah, not really. That "first" [email protected] just annoys the heck out of me.
I apologize! Clearly, if you look beyond the first word of my post, you will see that I actually DID have a comment pertinent to the article. Feel free to moderate if you DO NOT believe in the first amendment to the US constitution.
Let's make something clear. The First Amendment applies to GOVERNMENT censorship. MO is not government.

If you wanna complain about how we mod stuff around here, fine. But at least do so without throwing up that tired canard of the first amendment.
Actually, none of them. I tend to like naked bikes. I do appreciate the looks of the 1098 and (rather more) Triumph's 675. I think the Suzuki's appearance is atrocious - the style it has engendered IMO is the "Bangle butt" of motorcycles. But style is subjective and I'm not the typical buyer for those bikes, so I do my best to ignore them (and their riders). ;)
I've deleted at least TEN of the Wilco ckson posts. Pain in the butt.
[email protected], Kevin, don't you know that all the hot air will make global warming even WORSE!!?? Shut up quick!
C'mon, man, be FIRM. Say MAYBE!! With bold and caps to let 'em know ya mean business.
Good advice. I've never wanted to spend $$ on hand tools (power tools are a different matter) so I typically have a collection of pretty cheap but decent enough tools. It may be because I'm a wimp or because I don't do that much work of my own, but I haven't broken any tools, other than perhaps to mangle the tips on screwdrivers.
I would add that my wife Claire has a Ph.D as well, and is a professor at UC San Diego. She's wonderful. I consider her my "trophy wife." :)
