Another newbie, just got off the bus...
Hi, my name is AllieX and I'm from Texas. I might be a little different because I've been riding for a while, like 14 years. Started with dirtbikes. Live to ride, ride to live and al that.
Recently divorced because my ex was going hard core and I couldn't take the trash. Also I didn't mind paying for him but when he became abusive to keep up his image, well...
Anyway, this Lounge idea is wonderful and I hope I can be a positive factor here.

Really, I know the AMA is in the middle of some changes right now but I'm not feeling very inclined to re-up my membership when it expires this month....Not with the leadership they had, or with the leadership they're bringing in.
I agree with you fully and so do the other 23 of us that came down from Sturgis in our group. I had been looking foward to this conference since its inception. But when I got there, I found an interesting fair but coming down from Sturgis, it's gloss was dimished slightly. It seemed to be running itself. I had a great time and met a lot of interesting people and gained a pound or two.
But I couldn't let things be and tried to engage the AMA officials in talking and I wasn't alone. And none seemed to be willing or able to answer our questions till they just refused to talk to many of us. I know I'm a Hawgette but I also work for a living and don't usually cause trouble. However, I felt a little unwelcome or unwanted. Maybe I should have brought my Airhead. The BMW people seemed to be having a good time.
So I have a lot of unanswered questions. Motorcycling is going through changes and the enviorment we ride in is getting more dangerous. Bikers are finding themselves being priced out of exixtance. And no one from the AMA seemed to capable of making long term decisions at the conference. And I wonder what the AMA will do for us in the future.
As for too many crusiers, never happen.
