Does anyone remember the time FOX made a comment regarding workers in the coal industry in WV and set everyone in a tizzy? I think it was about 4 years ago or more but it always stuck with me. The horrid beauty of this group is the multifaceted personalities to match the scratched rainbow of colorful fairings and fenders at each ride, lunch, adventure, cross country trip and, in the case of BMW riders, trip to Starbucks for a double venti mocha frappa whatever the fuck. I wouldn't ever expect this group of misfits, ranging from the struggling college student to the six figure DC bandit, to come to terms on politics, religion or finance. We can all rally around our lifestyle, hobby and passion for two wheels (or 3 - hi VAC ) and this beautiful nation we call home. Some of you protect it with your service, some of you abuse it with poor environmental decisions, and some of you save it through forestry and environmental conservation. In a way our riding group is a microcosm of our regional diversity and I think that is a-okay.

Keep all this pontificating in the basement where people give a shit.

George you're right on all I see Washington doing is making everything more expensive and more of a hassle. How many trails/roads have you seen opened lately? I think both sides suck and we should start a grass roots movement to vote them all out as both parties have been infiltrated by progressives. BTW if you ride a motorcycle and have progressive insurance you might want to read this article by Rick Sieman aka "Super Hunky" once editor and one of the original founders of Dirt Bike magazine. Granted Mr. Sieman has a right wing bias but that still doesn't mean he is not on to something.

There are a lot of people that think riding a motorcycle is a poor environmental decision.

I finally figured out what that sleight-of-hand remark was. Here's the deal: I simply had a thought and wanted to share it with my friends. Not with people I don't know anything about, but with you. No insults were thrown, and nobody was put down. And Mike, don't pretend you don't like it because you're always stirring the pot for more. And obviously we all care about our future environment so if anybody doesn't like the idea that we should analyze the situation and work through it intelligently, perhaps they should be analyzed for a mental disorder. I like your narrative on how diverse we are as a group, and how we have that mutual interest that bonds us. It is fascinating. Nice cleanup on the CL. Onward and upward...
