"The drawing at the top looks like it measures the width of the bike lane two different ways because of two different circumstances. The one on the left includes part of the gutter because there is one. The one on the right measures to the edge of…"
"Crown TV has been doing this kind of work for a very long time. Be prepared though, the main reason we've become a throw-it-away society is because the cost to repair is close to the cost to replace. Figure to pay for one hour labor to diagnose…"
"I'm not in favor of red light cameras ... but ... I have noticed the increase in red light runners over the last 2-3 years and I have to admit that red-light runners were less when we had the cameras. Maybe we could have the best of both…"
"Pedestrians have walked in front of me while driving many times. I've missed people by mere inches. They don't seem to care. We can't hold the drivers responsible when the pedestrian does everything wrong."

"Yeah, a lot of kids know nothing of the classics. I have an 82 Honda in my garage that I need to put back together. There used to be a shop on 2nd Street called Gumby's. He knew that bike and I trusted him to work on it but he's gone now.…"
"I like that Maxim you had! It's kind of a cross between a cruiser and standard. I really like the styling of those old naked standards. The modern Triumph Speed Triple is pretty close, at least until they got rid of the round headlights."
"Steve Caruso is a really nice guy and I'm sure his shop does really good with the crotch rocket crowd but when I needed some major repairs on my cruiser, it was nothing but trouble. It started when the mechanic swore my bike had hydraulic valve…"
