Just because you can't handle it doesn't mean the big boys can't!

But the relatively low center of gravity makes a huge difference when it comes to weight and how it feels.

Cars are meant to be driven. Cage is only a state of mind.

I worked today. And went to the gym. I pick things up and put them down.

I came home after work to find that my email had been hacked. :rant:

I've changed the password, but the account is temporarily blocked.

This is the first time this has happened to me.

That MG sounded good. Are MG's good reliable bikes or are they prone to constant maintenance?


My email is still blocked by Microsoft. What a bunch of a-holes. If they don't unblock it by the morning, I'm getting a new email address.

First they wanted my cell phone number so they could text me a code. Not going to happen...I told them I don't have a phone that can text...I had already changed my password and so they told to change it again.... :rant:

After work I went to the physio for my arm and then came home and poured a glass of wine. :)

Moto Guzzis are good reliable bikes. They are low-maintenance, and you can do just about everything on them yourself. They are also very good handling bikes.

Climbed under my Jimmy and dropped the drive shaft so I could replace the U-joints. Press those caps out and guess what fell all over the floor... Nope, not a single needle bearing, just a whole lot of rusty dust...
