hb, since you asked, the Dragon and the store / restaurant are a scene. There are tons of bikes, and tons of people who like bikes. It's fun to stop for an hour, have lunch, look a the bikes, and watch the people. It's the same as sitting at the restaurant at the top of Palomar, or going to Julian for some pie. Nothing more complex than that. Tha actual idiots are few and far between.
Mmmm, Julian.. The apple pie was fantastic. But they need a Starbucks there...

All of the above. I'll steer clear of said legendary pieces of pavement.
As fun as it looks, it's not for me.

If you want to have an intelligent conversation around this, you'll want to refer to "climate change" and not global warming.

Not as good a joke, but an all too common misconception these days.

If I wanted intelligent conversation, I wouldn't be on this thread, would I?

Forecast is for 44c where I live in Southern Australia today (already 33c at 9.30am), third day in a row over 40c with another to go, unprecedented, then it's forecast to drop all the way down to 33c! I was going for a ride today, I've thought better of it.

We'll be very lucky to get away without there being very serious bushfires over the next 48hours. Fire Authority is warning conditions tomorrow will be potentially catastrophic.

Those same assholes who can't accurately tell me if its going to rain next Tuesday, somehow know precisely what the weather is going to do 30 years from now. Their infallible computer models were wrong about the warming so they switched to climate change. No matter if its hot, cold, dry, or wet somehow its caused by man.

The earth has always had continual climate change. The REAL discussion is whether or not man has influenced it. Back in the 1970s, the eggheads were predicting a new ice age.

How about what is the best oil to use to stop global warming?

Or, would Al Gore go dark side to save the planet?

I'm thinking the best oil for climate change would be Motorex Cross Power. My KX250 smokes a lot less using it than others I've tried. Smells pretty sweet too, and that has to count for something.
