      So you guys pay less insurance for larger displacement bikes in Germany? Man, I love that place.

      I wish I knew that when I went. They had mostly really high-end gear out on the floor, so if you weren't looking for an $1100 textile jacket, you were out of luck. I figured everything else went...

      Since we're on the subject, has anyone tried Hood jeans from the UK?

      It looks like they're about $200 shipped to the US...

      Comfort, power, droptop, don't care if it handles. I think this has to be your choice:

      I'd second the dual sport / supermoto. They're not great starter bikes for most folks because of the seat height, but it would be perfect for you.

      Don't know anything about licensing in...

      I get that. It's why I like the show so much. I just wish that when they do the final run-down, they would include a summary of how much time it'll take the average joe, too. Flipping a car for...

      CTRL+F, my friend.

      I didn't know that laws don't exist until there's a sign, though. I'd better get to work on a "NO MURDERING" T-shirt.

      Did you even click on the link? It has a section for "Minimum Speed Limit" for each state. Florida's reads:



      Again, Florida is unusual in that there is a separate section of code for...

      Varies by state, but most of them have statutes allowing them to post minimum speed limits for roads and prohibitions on impeding traffic.

      There actually is an express minimum limit on many roads and and implied one on all roads in the form of the prohibition from impeding traffic.

      I'm far from anti-bike. I think the roads in this...

      I wish I could keep the slow, inattentive drivers off the road, but that's a whole other discussion. I think the safety point is valid, though. Introducing a speed differential is hazardous. ...

      With the exception of Chasing Classic Cars where the cars are too valuable to cut any corners, I'd hazard a guess that most of these TV cars are getting substandard treatment. That said, I'd...

      If you can truly keep up with traffic - that is maintain a solid 5 over the limit regardless of wind, hills, etc. - then by all means take the whole lane. No different than a motorcycle in my mind. ...

      What's the airflow like through the kevlar and lining? Say, on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being normal jeans and 1 a ****ty plastic rain suit.
    15. Their website says they're 100% kevlar lined. ...

      Their website says they're 100% kevlar lined. They do indeed look like a nice piece of gear. At $150, I'd probably be buying 2 pair. Gotta think for a while at $250, though.

      Especially the ones with the nav screen. The CD slot looks like a 5.25" floppy drive. Apparently, that screamed "high tech" to GM at the time.

      I don't know the exact quote, but I loved Bob...

      Wow. I've seen some awkward acronyms in my day, but "Aviation Into-plane Reimbursement" to get AIR is a new level of retarded. So it's paying you back to put aviation into your airplane?

      You'd be surprised, actually. Obviously, a fighter's top speed is higher. But airliners are designed specifically to do long-haul flights as fast as is practical. So their respective max range...

      I don't have a whole lot to add that hasn't already been said, but I just wanted to point out a couple of things.

      You mention several times that working for the major manufacturer would look...

      Those guys tank all the time, it's not a wartime only event. That said, if there was a base along the way that routinely handled F-18s, I'm sure they'd stop there. But if you land somewhere that...
