I would have to disagree.

How wonderful to see another budding motorcyclist. An in that not just one looking to get a chromed up HD or the loudest 600rr. So she moves in a circle where getting a CB160 going as fast as it can, or putting a rusted out CL350 back on the road is a thing of joy. We then become mentors, not to reshape based upon how we have become but to encourage her into a competent biker regardless of CCs, model and age. I hope we never tire of seeing the excitement of one changing their life against the flow of current standards, of becoming one in love with two wheels.


Oh wait.. sorry.. I forgot the "Confirmed Curmudgeon" part.. just forget what I wrote.

I'm absolutely thrilled to see someone make an unusual or unpopular choice in motorbikes. It's just not necessary to disparage bikes that aren't your flavor.

I agree. That said, I also understand the frustration with the unending harangue of the HD crowd. No, not all of them, but a loud percentage. I think HD makes some fine vehicles. Not for me, but they're fine. It's the unceasing chest beating I get weary of. Just effing ride and leave me alone.

Gratuitous pic


Great parallel parking job.

And I'll have to AGREE with your disagreement. What she said made a lot of sense, and more power to her on her journey.

I'll leave the original grumbly post up for posterity. Just a kneejerk reaction to remembering the flamefest surrounding the Vid Lady...

I saw no smiles in your post, so maybe you don't know why his visor is up.

Yup. Clearly it is a LITTLE smokey. If on the gas it would A LOT smokey.

A good training technique. Following one, if you see the road covered in smoke, get on the gas, if it disappears, get on the brakes.
