      Truly serious miles.

      Checking around, I have to say ads like this kill me: http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/mcy/4982952132.html Pretty much no useful information about the bike.

      The run-time was a surprise - I"m used to 40 minute hours on network tv. :-)

      As an aside, today I saw three riders wearing helmets - the first I've seen since it got warm here. I was starting to think I was the only person in KY with helmets. ;-)

      Finished them today. Nice subtle shout-out to another upcoming Marvel/Netflix series - Iron Fist - in the final ep. Overall, I enjoyed it quite a bit, and I liked the subtle tie-ins to other Marvel...

      Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix

      Anyone watching? I'm up to episode 5 and I've been surprisingly pleased with it. I'd say the production values aren't as good as Arrow or The Flash, but it seems much better written and just as well...

      I think they're better learned on a dirt bike - typically low powered (nowhere near sport bike power) and away from road hazards (no cars, for one), with the consequences of drops and falls mitigated.

      To be fair, the article cites fatalities/car, so the Corvette could still be up there percentage-wise. Most of the cars on the list seem to be there because sheer sales volume means a healthy chunk...

      You know what's crazy? How distorted things can get. James May has an 70s moped for sale (which he reportedly bought of Hammond about 10 years ago), a Yamaha FS-1E - which Brits nicknamed the...

      That outlines some of the problem - people tend to think of MSF as having just the one course, the 2-day basic riding course for beginners to get their license. They do have advanced courses that...

      That's some of it, but not all. As Green Arrow pointed out, he could recon an area and neutralize a situation before anyone knows what's happened, and on "The Arrow " he did exactly that.

      I've been watching it since the debut. I was a fan of the comic as a kid so I'll see it thru, but the writers have trouble writing around Barry's powers so things seem to contrived. He's The Flash -...

      I've seen this from both sides - for y3ears I was the one hitting up truck-owning friends to borrow their rides. Now that I've got one, I pay it forward. Moving a dinette set for a cousin this...

      This conspiracy has the same basis as most conspiracies - a group of supporters unwilling to accept harsh reality. Making this some scheme to move the show lets Clarkson fans say "See? He's not a...

      Been riding since I was 16 and I'm 52 now. The only time I laid down a bike was goofing with some friends in a parking lot at around that age. We'd set up a slalom with soda bottles and cans and the...

      For two grand, I would look at anything remotely sporty - the money would be much better spent on a motorcycle if performance tops the list. That means hitting the boat show (some big old luxury car)...

      That's unfair. It's regularly used by a small group that rides. The discussion is different than TCL in that it's more, let's say "relevant" instead of "reality-based." I wouldn't want it to turn...
