    Rider was totally at fault, inexperience cost money, and luckily this time no other(s) innocent lives.
    Never use the road as a race track.

    I guess it's hardcore to lean your bike against stuff....?

    :scratch

    what would be REALLY hardcore is to bring a race-stand with you everywhere!

    Most of those cars are worth more than I make in a year or ten. I would drive them carefully too, considering the nutjobs on that road.

    he is a really cool guy. I was talking to him about his Bugatti - the Type 57 with the fin down the back - I was asking him about the engine and he just said oh well here take a look and he popped the bonnet! He got his hands all in there wiping up the loose oil.... even so the engine compartment was flawless. He is always up for talking shop with ANYONE.

    I spent an evening with him once, just before he took over the Tonight show. A friend of mine was doing up a Vincent engine for him, and he was in town for an appearance, so we sat around in the shop and had pizza and talked. Super nice down-to-earth guy.

    The guy's rep is that he's an accomplished wrench as well. This guy is not a poser but the real deal.

    Neither does a sizable protion of the American TV-viewing public.

    But yeah, he does seem like he'd be a good guy to have a beer with, and anybody with a Vincent addiction can't be all bad.

    He's been able to live out a dream that many have but can't afford. He has more than a static car collection. His is live and operating, and he can play with any toy anytime he wants.

    Incidentally, Leno's monologues he did when he was touring were quite funny. He did much better in a different venue.

    he's also quite an incredible encyclopedia of knowledge. All the stuff on his website that he goes on and on about is really interesting

    Oh, I'm familiar with the ol' Chin - when I was a college student at IUP in Western PA (circa 1984) , we'd road-trip down to the Pittsburgh area with bud's that lived in the area to catch Mr. Jay Leno at this mobbed-up 'dinner club' out in Monroeville (velvet wallpaper ? wtf ?) . He was pretty funny.

    lately....well, kinda stale, imo
