I don't know what type of research you can do on this, but I heard in the last couple years of people sitting in line to get in for hours. This July is going to be a mad scramble with everybody traveling post-COVID. Not to be negative, but you might ... more »

I was never really interested in having a family, since it just seemed like so much commitment and work. Then at 46 I got a woman 11 years younger than me pregnant, married her (since divorced), and my daughter is almost 7. Parenting has been some of ... more »

Added reply in a thread Additional $1225 in fees over MSRP for new bikes? Really? 5/28/2021 2:32 PM

I argued freight and set-up with customers so many times that hearing the words makes me tense up. Our dealership inflated the freight price a little bit. Most salesmen I worked with didn't even want to deal with dirt bike customers, especially racers ... more »

I give moto as we know it 20 years in California, sad to say. It's only a matter of time before sales of new internal combustion vehicles are illegal in this state- 2030-2035 is the time frame I predict, unless something radical happens.

What happens when all the rent moratoriums come off and millions of people become homeless? I suppose they aren't the ones buying bikes anyhow.

What do you all think of this thing? It can supposedly power your home if there is an outage. Price around $50k. Looks like it might be a game-changer. 300 miles of range and 10k lb. towing capacity.

Why y'all so hung up on another dude's hair and clothing? You want everybody with a buzz cut, a backwards hat and a Monster Energy team shirt? I don't get it.

I think those plates represent that Ryno's techniques and ideas work. That's pretty much peak performance for an athlete of his age and experience. Ryno hadn't raced in something like 9 years and comes out and dominates. He trains world-championship ... more »

I'm standing there at Steel City during that moto- my buddy and I drove up from Virginia. He turns to me as Langston has the lead- "I guess Langston has it, unless his bike breaks." Me, slowly taking a sip from my beer: "Stranger things have happened."
