I don't know if you still have the XJ900, but I have had one for the last 6 years, and have put about 15,000 miles on it. There were approximately 1600 imported to the US, but it was only an interim bike prior to the introduction of the FJ1100. If it is running right, it will get 55-60+ mpg on road ...

I'm fine, getting old, just like I was before, only moreso, but can still ride, so I'm good. Still have the old heap, it has a little over 20k miles on it, and new tires are on the menu when weather warms up. What's new with you? The website looks like it's blossomed into an ocean and we're just tin...

You all have to keep in mind that the new generation of bikes are the results of massages, cosmetics, or minor technical tweaks that most people will never really notice or test. I saw the road test in CW, and still don't know why they built such a heavy bike with a bunch of horsepower that is only ...

It's hard to believe people actually managed way back before SUV's were in vogue, but we did. As for sales figures rising for large SUV's after prices came down on fuel, it says something about the citizens of this country having a mass learning disability, as someone referred to previously. I serio...

For some reason, almost any Ford diesel's exhaust fumes will make my eyes water and take my breath away. Real stinkers, they.

I saw him on TV explaining his version of things, saying helmets aren't required, etc. Only thing he left out was "with a license". This jock's intellect is remarkebly microscopic. A pig is probably smarter. He should be eternally grateful to his gods for having the job he fell into.

I often feel old because I am....I will be 65 in November. I avoid riding in the rain and freezing temperatures will keep me indoors these days. I no longer believe in masochism as part of the riding experience. All you whiners have much to look forward to. :)

Evidently the guy knew the possible ramifications of not wearing a helmet, choosing not to wear one because it wasn't dictated by law, and "it feels more free" to go without. I see no reason to feel sympathetic toward him--he accepted the risk, and by doing so tacitly approved any possible outcome o...

Very true, but she seems to have a mean, hateful personality. It simply radiates from her like a malevolent death-ray.

I couldn't agree more. I hate modern cellphones, with their tiny buttons and all the features that can trip you up if you touch the wrong button. Way back when, I had one of the old Motorola "brick" phones, and it worked just fine. I would pay extra to have a simple phone instead of the feature-lade...
