schizuki my friend go for a ride. Is it the full moon that is making you grumpy? Just a short rebuttal.
Yes gas will hit $3.00 in January and $3.50 next summer. Interest rates will rise to almost 1980 levels in the next decade. Why? Someone has to pay W's tab. TBD on the war? The V-4 will become the dominant sportbike engine in the next 5 years. I am talking about trickle down technology from MotoGP my friend.. V-4s can give you could primary balance, firing order balance, are narrower than inline 4s and can out perform V-Twins.
I rode mine in, it's about 50 miles to Seattle from my place, kp lives about 5 miles closer, in fact I pass his neighborhood on the way home everyday. Sunday was low 30's up here in the hills, closer to Seattle it was 40 and sunny....in short, a perfect winter riding day.
There was a couple of dozen bikes in the m/c area of the parking garage, so I wasn't alone. We ride every year unless it's snowing.
"Yet another group of anti-western Islamic fanatics is training thousands of terrorists in Afghanistan, and we know it. Terrorists launch a series of strikes against the U.S. -- the World Trade Center, Khobar Towers, U.S. embassies in Africa, the U.S.S. Cole. The terrorists training in Afghanistan are behind most if not all of these attacks. The president does essentially nothing in response. Offered several opportunities to take out the leader of the terrorist group, he declines. Later he will blame his inaction on various U.S. agencies under his control, and on the fact that taking action would have engendered criticism, since he had evaded the draft. Soon after the president leaves office, the Afghan based terrorists launch an attack on U.S. soil that kills approximately 3,000 Americans."
