So I've been working on JohnB's essay assaignment, you know, about the picture out of the Mustang window being worth a thousand (or 10,000) words or something like that? I have questions. Whose Mustang? What's with the surveillance-esque photo out the window? (What, you couldn't get out of the car?) And the question that's on almost everybody's mind: Who's the girl?

Another Thought

I had another thought. (That's it, I'll have to quit for the week now.) I like these kind of reviews, even if this isn't the bike I ride or dream about.

When I was at the bike show in St. louis this past winter I noticed that, tucked away in a corner, Yamaha was still displaying the Vulcan 750 that hasn't changed much since the days of Reagan. It had attracted a couple of people (most older than myself), and the Yamaha guy commented to one of them something to the effect of "It's not sexy, but I've never heard any complaints about one. " It brings to mind Glyden's article from earlier in the week about the elegance and charm of things you can fix yourself. How nice that if I like a bike from ten or more years ago, I can still go out and buy one, new, with a warranty. And not just one. I have my choice of several, from a GS 500 up to a V-Max with several other options in between. Perhaps it's an accident of the industry, but I like that about motorcycles.

I'm done now.
