The release is dated 4/30 and states that no evidence was found that the incidences in the last week were firearm-related. The established shooting was on the 22nd.

How big of a deal is the "slips out of third gear" thing? (For a middling mechanic - at best - such as myself.)

The original intent of the thread - if you glance over the first few pages - was to discuss the development of a new motorcycle and brand. It's even pretty much stated in the thread title.

Come to think of it, that does look an awful lot like the model Mustang/Corvette/etc V8's I used to put together as a kid. Maybe that's why I find the engine appealing; just needs a 4 barrel carb and...

Huh? The FJ-09 has a 4.8 gallon tank for a range of about 210 miles at 44 mpg. (Unless you are talking imperial gallons but it still equals the same range, at, um, 52.8 mpg.)
