Look forward to seeing them in May. Since I doubt you'll be using them on Saturday, we'll have to see what they can do on Sunday, yes?

John, that's the reason why Kim and I decided to go with brand new bikes. I love my Honda Elites, but they are going on almost 30 years now. Even with meticulous maintenance, they just aren't 100% reliable anymore.

Larry believes in the words uttered by Jack Weinberg at UC Berkeley so many years ago: Never trust anyone over 30. Ha! I think he's also crossed the divide between those people who'd rather ride and those who'd rather wrench. I got there a long time ago!

Wrenching has its place.... at home in your spare time. Not interfering with a good ride.

I have several customers that bring their Kymco scooters in for oil changes and tires. I never see them for repairs--they don't break down. I prefer them to Vespas. I have had no problems with my Kymco Venox MC. When the weather is too bad to ride I enjoy just looking at it.

Bryan, when it comes to bikes, I don't trust anything over 30 years old. When it comes to people, I don't trust anyone under 30 years old.

30 years ago would have been about the time CDIs started to replace points. I remember when I saw the first Elite--I thought it was the most modern space-age thing I had ever seen on 2 wheels. I wanted a 250 Elite, but I got what I could afford. I still enjoyed my Spree. The Spree was good for Central Florida where it is flat. My brother-in-law still rides that old Spree.

No curb feelers, but I do have my eye on a nice pair of Blue-Blocker Wrap-around sunglasses.

That sucker definitely needs some fuzzy dice. From the mirrors, maybe?

If Ike got one of these he might start riding with us again. We could even put a laptop computer with a wireless card on it so he do Facebook while he rode!
