Re: Lead Follow or Get out my way..kpaul's answer to the

And don't forget the doofus who had the expert driver training program crashed his car into someone.

My driver's ed teacher was my high school basketball coach. The simulators were fun though! I just floored the throttle until it reached an indicated 100 MPH and the teacher started yelling at me.

Re: U.K. riders are smarter

Well I'll have to disagree with you there young GPTB member.

Marketing only gets you so far. H-D makes a nice product. H-Ds core buyers are people who have already owned one. You don't get repeat customers of you're all hype and no substance.

Don't forget the Japanese fall all over themselves trying to copy that "hype."

Re: U.K. riders are smarter

The 90s hype was simply a function of supply and demand. H-D produced 110,000 bikes when I bought my first one in '96 (at MSRP and no waiting list mind you).

The raping and pillaging was at the dealer level. I mean if someone offered you 5 grand more than your bike was worth you wouldn't take it?

I can remember walking into dealers that had zero new bikes to sell. The factory responded by tripling production and now you can find any bike you want with no wait. Heck my local dealer is offering a Destroyer at 5 grand off MSRP.

My Electra Glide doesn't perform like a Tuono but then the Tuono doesn't perform like my Electra Glide.

Click here here and here for links to myself saying the exact same thing. If I moderate my own post upward and link to it that makes me an authority.

I think our stats show that almost half the fatalities are from unlicensed riders.

If one doesn't even bother to get a license, all the tiers in the world aren't going to make a difference.

On another note

I've got the neighbor kids here tonight so their parents can have an evening out.

My son and the other boys have managed to get a hold of my cordless drill and are drilling holes into stuffed animals. They're calling it "surgery."

I love kids.

Re: On another note

Well I've got a nice fire burning (eucalyptus and avocado) because it's in the 40s tonight. I'm watching the Lakers and sipping an ounce of the fine Mexican tequila I bought for longride.

I guess he should've made it out here sooner.

My son already knows that tattoos are the "Badge of Ignorance." Got that one from my dad.
