    Winners For Jack Riepe's MOA Column: Choosing The Best Riding Partner...

    There were three winners in my recent Owners News (ON) column: Choosing The Best Riding Partner. Each winner received an autographed copy of my book, "Conversations With A Motorcycle." The winners were Frank Curtis, Donald Grant, and Lee Shreve. Winners were selected at random from a list of names dropped in a Nolan helmet. A fourth, bonus prize, was awarded to Kevin Greenwald, for being the first reader to respond. I like the idea of a prize category like this and it will shift around, from the the first, to the fifth, to the 67th responding reader.

    Thanks to everyone who reads my column and likes it. Not everyone does. A dissatisfied reader, an "R" bike rider from Samoa, sent me the ripped out pages of my column in the mouth of a severed pig's head.

    I think he gets an award for the most creative use of your column. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm....... What could that be?

    Perhaps a contest to decide what prize would be appropriate.

    But you failed to mention who the "best riding partner" is.

    You know my vote. There is no doubt she was the best!

    Dear Bud:

    His prize would be barbecue sauce. I had to pick Kimi as the winner. If I picked Bregstein, I'd have to be comitted.

    Jack,

    "A dissatisfied reader, an "R" bike rider from Samoa, sent me the ripped out pages of my column in the mouth of a severed pig's head. "
    I believe that this is actually part of an ancient Samoan blessing. Usually the person presenting the head performs a dance which involves a great deal of chest thumping and foot stomping. The dance is frequently followed by either a chest bump (modern adaptation developed by members of the NFL) or crotch arranging (MLB adaptation, usually limited to hurlers) or doing the 'pony' (southeast asian adaptation).
    Note: if the head was not previously smoked using ficus leaves, the recipient can dry the head (after wrapping in used cigar wrappers) for three weeks, after which it is suitable for use as a passenger backrest on K bikes.

    Dear Flars:

    It is very disturbing to me when riders of the iconic BMW ? the one with the Boxer engine designed by Pharaoh Immohotep III ? feel compelled to slight the one machine BMW designed from the get-go to have a proper cooling system, the "K" bike. I tried to smoke a pig's head once. It didn't draw properlyand was hard to keep lit.

    Sincerely,
    Reep

    The other two candidates had the same chances as a snowman at the Bloomsburg Rally.

    The K-bike, with its integral crotch warmer, was designed by Bubbahotep, a Pharaoh accustomed to more southern climates. Thankfully, the King (the one from Memphis) and Jack Kennedy (in disguise) saved us from that unholy tyrant, as documented in the classic Bruce Campbell movie from 2002
