The last touring bike I normally would think of

What bike do you want today?

I want a 1991 through 2003 Sportster 1200. I think it would be the right bike for me at this time in my life.

This past Saturday night's 1/2 Mile in Knoxville, IA had the closest finish that I ever heard of; .0004 second. That's four ten thousanths of a second. I think I'd call that a dead heat.
