I'd put it in one of my living rooms. Unfortunately, yet fortunately?, I quit riding years ago and said never again. My older brother almost died from a gal running a Stop sign. He went through the passenger window and came out the drivers. I went down a few months later, hard, and took it as a sign.
He got back on one a few years ago. Bought that monster BMW whatever it is. Wifey finally talked him into selling a year ago.
He's crazier than I am. I'm done. Still an adrenaline junkie, just not on 2.
I have a problem of thinking WOT is the only way fueled machines work.

The 'Nard just put one of our officers in the ground. Still no specific cause, but a semi turned left in front of him. He'd just gotten off duty. His friends were among those who responded to the initial scene

Some of my best friends' dad went the same way a few years ago.

Lady pulled out in front of him or turned left in front of him, can't remember which. She "didn't see" him and his bike...

Well youngster. The overwhelming of folks in the early 60's were looking to get out of Johnson's killing fields. The low life SOB. I was able to get a occupational deferment.

Fortunately Bloomberg served..oh wait..he also dodged the Draft.

It showed human interest and caring by the Pres and reciprocal by the woman toward Trumb. And being an African American American didn't hurt.

Now bloomberg's message....that was lame. And being there were lots of rednecks listening it alerted them to the fact that he is a gun grabber. He doesn't have a prayer anyways.

An advanced advertisement on being a gun grabber makes you unelectable.

allegedly, that woman's son was killed in gang violence after HE went to another guys house to start a fight

Bloomberg should have picked a better victim for his commercial, someone who is actually a victim of violence by use of a gun
Maybe someone like Madisyn White-Carrol's mother, Shauna White, should be in a commercial.

Madisyn, who had just turned 19, was shot 10 times after a minor car accident in December.

But then, we'd have to ignore the conversation we should have about illegal immigrants, and sanctuary cities

I'm not sure what his end game is. I appreciate a 3rd party candidate but they never have a legitimate chance go win. He will split the vote of one...or both of the R/D candidates.

If the Dems nominate Bernie then he could have a strong chance to get votes from independents and level headed, pro-business Democrats.

Regardless I don't see him having a strong turnout. At the end of the day people are passionate about candidates who are "charismatic" and appease to their emotions.

I've been hearing this for decades and not one gun has been grabbed. We have very weird values in this country.

I went into Wal-Mart 2 days ago to buy some 12-gauge shells.

"Sir, may I see your ID?"
"Here is my California Driver's License"
"I'm sorry sir, this isn't sufficient. Do you have your passport?"
"Passport? I want some ammo, not onto a plane."
"I can't sell these to you, sorry"

I am a gun owner. I don't know of one candidate advocating for the removal of guns from law-abiding citizens.

EVERY ad I've seen, Bloomberg is advocating removal of "unsafe" guns.

The only "safe" gun is an unloaded, disassembled one.

I have TiVo. No ads here...

I will say that the current system of background checks is insufficient.
