Off topic, but I’m sorry to hear you dropped your bike. I’ve had road rash, and it sucks.
Not trying to one-up you, but I bought a new bike today – a showroom perfect 2003 Yamaha FJR1300 touring bike.
I realize all speedometers are a bit optimistic, but it’s still cool to ride a bike whose clock runs up to 180 mph. That would be just a bit under 300 for those of you who prefer metric.
As midlife crises go, it’s cheaper and safer than a mistress. She’ll never call my wife.
That def one ups me…in fact, it probably 20 ups me. 1300…nice. I ride a 150…which is the biggest bike one is permitted in Taiwan without paying extortionary licensing fees and massive insurance rates.
Keep it rubber side down, mon ami.
Back in the day, a school chum of mine once discovered that he could sync up the drum solo from the live version of this song with a guitar solo on a live recording of a Triumph song (don’t know which one) and the two solos -and even the audience reactions- matched up very nicely. It was like a whole new song.
