Same here. I've never eaten a McDonalds and the only Honda I had snapped a camchain and locked up, pitching me off and breaking my shoulder. I can't imagine why either brand is popular.

MG. I had 3 wives that caused me wallet pain to no end.. caused a broken heart a couple times. Using your logic, am I supposed to stop lusting after women? Or just be more selective?

The answer is obvious! Pick a wife who rides! My current wife was Bonneville mounted when I first met her in 1986. We are still going strong, although she now rides a Thunderbird. There are some spectacularly good women out there, but you need to look hard to find one! Good hunting!

Same here, except it was four. I dumped two, one died and the other one dumped me. I should have been retired by now but instead I have bugger all and two Triumph motorcycles. So all up, I can`t complain...

Looks like that was taken on the way back from the beer run. Where did you hide the empties, under the seat?



P.S.

In cities scooters make sense. It has to help us as motorcycle enthusiasts that people are riding them. But I see folks riding them in suburbia and I say to myself: why not get a small motorcycle? What's the difference if you ride a real motorcycle other than the fact that you can actually go fast enough to safely get away from other cars? And quit pretending you're safer riding a scooter compared to a bike and actually put on a helmet and some gear!? It gives the illusion of being safer if you say it's just a scooter.
