    I just had an older crown come off while sipping some of the broth from my meal of corned beef and cabbage the day before St. Paddy's. Fortunately, my dentist decided it could just be cemented back...

    While riding IN LA can be tedious and anxiety inducing, there are a lot of great roads to ride AROUND LA. I lived there for 33 years, my family is still there, so if you're interested in some great...

    Mark, did you get your Anonymous book yet? It's a comfort to have it even if you never need it.

    What's your itinerary?

    If there's a conflict between a federal requirement and state or local law, the federal view prevails. Thus, states and local governments do not have the authority to prohibit motorcycle use of the...

    You're welcome to drop by, but if you get here before 10, you may have to do some sweeping. ;)

    That's a shame, because it's a blast riding those oldie-moldie bikes. It's at least as different as riding a modern superbike. And it's the challenge of riding well that I find intoxicating,...

    Don, except maybe in far northern Sweden and Norway, there is nothing in Europe like the open spaces out to Cape Breton. If you are not on the Autobahn/Autoroute/Autostrada, you will have to slow to...

    What can I say? I bought an R1200ST; I actually pre-ordered it!

    I think this F800R looks fine!
