There you go. Problem solved. I have a friend that does track days on his speed triple and loves it.

My uncles all had English bikes and fancied themselves to be Wyoming Cafe Racers in the late 50s, early 60s. I drooled over their bikes.

P.S. Some Cafe Racer "style" bikes are cool.

All that money the Leafs spend and they still have the same number of expansion-era Cups as Buffalo.

Cue the Gary-Bettman-hates-Canada conspiracy theories in 5...4...3...

The Leafs have no incentive to win. The team is profitable despite their disappointing performance on ice. Someone please make it stop.

BTW, I haven't been to, or watched a full game since the 70's.

P.S. What cafe racers did before stripping their bikes and riding from cafe to cafe:
