The cap-n-tax legislation that CA voters voted for last week will eventually put an end to this "global warming causing travesty."

No thanks. I'll continue to ride reliable steeds made by Yamaha, Honda & Kawasaki. I can run 180+ on a straight road, drag my knee at 140+ on Dunlops going from the 105 to the SB 405 (in full leathers). Any kook that wears a skirt (especially while on a bike) should take their cock and balls to Scotland.

Thanks for publishing Mr. Tucker's picture in the paper. He really is the perfect riding companion! I've been doing the Hansen Dam Ride since 1996 and it really is one of SoCal's premier events. No fees, no hype - just a lot of very cool riders hitting the road for a day together.

Hope to see everyone next year...

Narrow perspectives from a shallow mind.

It's not about the technology or the speed - it's about the camaraderie and fun, something which squids and Power Rangers often don't understand. At 80 MPH, I'd rather "feel" like I'm going 140 MPH on my Triumph than actually go 140 on a Yamahondakawazuki. For those who absolutely must have a street-legal GP bike to crash on, Triumph makes those too - and they're every bit as reliable and quick as what Japan makes.
