Perris is a scum pond that will leave you with diarrea. The only thing worst is Elsinore!

No. I don't get rid of anything. I almost bought another one on e-bay got beat out on bidding. it went for $375.
X2 was the 2nd ski I got, had a SX but the bitch took it in divorce. Her fat ass can't even ride the thing anymore. I think she kept it just to spite me.

A cup of coffee or a chicken sandwich. Same price. One you piss out, one you shit out. At least when I shit I'm reading motorcycle magazines. So chicken wins.

Villopoto wins Daytona!

Ktm did really well without a single breakdown. Yamaha gets robbed in the LCQ. More news and weather at 11.

I was reading somewhere that 90 percent of auto clutch buyers are almost 50 years old. Is that true? Should I buy one now and store it for 16. Years due to inflation?

in 1982, I rode a Honda 750A from Illinois to California and back. It has a 2-speed automatic transmission from a Honda Civic. Now I will admit that it seems strange to ride with an automatic, but when I was in rush hour traffic, it was nice to not have to shift. I was 26 at the time.

I still have the bike. And the automatic still seems weird. But I really liked it when in traffic. And fortunately for me, I have never been one to get excited about how fast I go or how many seconds it takes to go from 0-60. I'll leave that to others.

As for today's bikes. I like to shift. And even though my Avalanche has an automatic, I'm thinking that whatever I buy next will have a manual transmission. My wife went back to a manual in her new car.

But in May, we are going to look a the new Honda touring machine coming out with fairing, luggage, six-speed semi-automatic transmission for her. Oh, she turns 50 this year. Hmmm.

All of my trucks have been manual except the tundra I have now. I just trust the manuals more as they seem to hold up better and be dead relîable.

I was actually rooting for that ktm rider today. What a good race. Too bad bubba went down. Hopefully he won't be on dis-ability for too long. Hopefully team Yamaha can get a decent rider sometime in the future.
