Have you ever considered the fact that the only thing that makes Golf different from Pool or

Bowling is the walking. This explains why the PGA raised so much hell about the guy with the hip problem that wanted to use a cart. The hamburgers are always better at Bowling Lanes and Pool halls have better calenders, which can only bring you to the conclusion that Golf Sucks!

Favorite Non motorcyling item. A big heated garage.

Damn I miss seeing my bikes everyday. Sheds suck. Bikes locked in by snow. No heat and large temp swings make my bikes looks like ice sculptures.



I finally moved my Ducati to a big heated garage at a bud's house. My Roadking gets no respect and sits in Iceland in my back yard.



Winter Sucks.



Divorce Sucks, I miss my garage, sniff...



BTW keep the content coming. I don't care what it is I need my bike fix. I think the next "who cares" article should be on "What 5 Bikes you would own if you could only own five bikes"

Favorite Motorcycle: Yamaha FZR 1000 circa 94: A lot more stable than my R6 and more powerful than my VFR. After blueprinting and powdercoating the frame and swingarm, buying a new shock, polishing everything and repainting (well the paintjob ain't all that) it's still not roadworthy due to a lost title (duplicate in the mail) and expired registration.



Favorite Motorcycle Related Apparel: Yamaha/Hein Gericke leathers. I kinda like looking like a Superhero. I also like my Arai RX7RR3 helmet.



Favorite Motorcycle Related Product: Carbon fiber...j/k I dunno...any good tankbag I guess



Favorite Non-Related Product: Porn

I hope you get all you wishes. I will not be getting mine. I wrote to Yamaha who, unlike arrogant Honda, actually wrote me back to say they have no plans to bring in the FJR 1300. Come on guys/gals write more letters and help me get my new FJR 1300!

Just Say Yes to GS

I'm pleased to see that the sportbike-loving MO staff still has room to include my favorite bike in their picks for the year. It's quirky bikes like the GS-1150 that keep motorcycling interesting. It may not be the fastest or the prettiest (although I would never tell mine either), but as a UGM, it's tough to beat. Except for the price, of course.

An MR2? They don't sell them in Canada, I wonder why?



You have to go for the Miata, bolt on a supercharger if you really want stoplight action.

However I find the standard engine very quick and only modified cars are consistently faster on the autocross course.



Yes, The 1150 GS is a great bike, I just need to get over the sticker shock and then the high maintance cost and schedules.

Five Bikes:



1. Suzuki SV650 for everyday glee.

2. Ducati 748S, with Termi pipes and a fuel-injection chip (MIE?) as stocking stuffers, for chariot-of-the-gods escapism.

3. Harley-Davidson Road King, for goin' to Sturgis, and New Orleans, and San Francisco, and....

4. Suzuki DR-Z400S for working on dirt chops.

5. Norton 850 Commando Interstate, or a gray-market Honda NSR250, or a Yamaha WR426, or an Aprilia SL1000, or...you get the point.



Motorcycle-related Apparel: Custom-fitted Arai helmet.



Non-bike item: Macintosh Cube, after the first revision of OS X ships as native.

Open-mindedness and Bubba genes

Just to shoehorn this in: Golf, by itself, is an okay thing. A good solid swing is an incredibly satisfying action. A well-manicured course, while certainly not natural, is very pleasing. A round with a decent fellow member of the human race is definitely up there on the list of good ways to spend an afternoon.

The attitude of your stereotypical "golfer," on the other hand, he of the equipment obsession and pursuit of loads of book advice and knee-jerk business cliches and spoon-fed Republicanism and nausea-inducing wardrobe, is certainly enough to dissuade most rational types from the game. (But to be sure, if you're downing a six-pack while you're playing, both you and your game either are or will be in serious trouble.)

And as far as taking a bike to the track, well, most cars can tow stuff in a trailer....
