After half a decade, I've taken some time off from riding.

A number of variables came together to force me into this decision.

The most important was witnessing the aftereffects of a freeway motorcycle accident where the rider was not wearing protective...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

Let me first make this perfectly clear. I would never own or display an American flag for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is its ominous association with longstanding, systematic...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

Here's a lovely photograph to go along with my argument.

That's Orval Faubus, then governor of Arkansas, in 1959, giving a speech in opposition to desegregation of public schools to a crowd of...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

Consider that integration was opposed so strongly that state leaders deployed the national guard to prevent it.

Then tell me how it's too fantastical to believe that those very same people chose...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I've read and continue to read plenty about pre-abolition history and that includes the significance of the abolition movement pre-civil war.

I don't need to equivocate for kidnappers, murderers,...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

It was neither moral nor ethical. Simply because something is legal does not mean it can't be ethically dubious.

Even at the time, slavery was a highly debated subject. That means there were...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I'm talking about the morality of owning people, not about the technicality that it was legal at the time.

I've also never been convinced that culturally accepted practices somehow override...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I've seen a lot of equivocation on this subject. But your argument is by far the most spineless I've come across.

Do you really expect us to believe that slaveowners didn't notice the "property"...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I suggest you read this incredible essay by Ta-Nehisi Coates called The Case for Reparations.

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I'm actually astonished by the swift negative reaction against the Confederate flag and its derivatives. There has been near universal condemnation of its showing. This is indicative of a watershed...

Re: All this Confederate flag stuff.

I don't think it is a good idea to apply a sort of historical erasure to the Confederate flag or its derivatives.

With that being said, every person I've ever known who's been proud of or...

I assume you've checked all the obvious points first? Air filter, oil, spark plugs, etc?

Re: Should the US go metric?

Anyone who has done large amounts of physics calculations knows the advantage of metric over imperial. It's not a minor difference, either. There's a reason the scientific standard is metric.

CL ad for R1 with 170,000 miles.

I assume that such a high mileage is the product of one owner given the rebuild that already has 35K on it. His or her back must be destroyed.

I clicked on that link thinking "ridiculously high" would be exaggeration, but those are genuinely prohibitively high. Like, that motorcycle is almost unridable. I certainly couldn't reach those...

Re: For God's sake, wear a f^&king helmet.

Sure, it's the rider's choice. But saying that hardly gives a proper understanding of what it means to not wear a helmet. In fact, I think it's downright irresponsible to suggest the two choices are...
