Did I over burden the forum on that subject matter? lol

Over posting is wrong and it should be avoided as it will have undesirable consequences. I watched me do it.

My new slant on the forum: Less keystrokes, better content and forethought.

The Forum removes the time and distance between like minded individuals. It is quite the communication tool. I give great thanks to the owners of the board.

That is a good one for sure.
I know trying to explain this to the wife who doesn't really enjoy it is tough.

Thanks John.

Why do I ride a motorcycle?
I ride a motorcycle because I don't jump out of planes!

It's fun riding, gets me where I want to go, and also places I never thought to go before, 1 ride can last all day, or on a trip for weeks or so, and I can ride in most weather. Riding is basically rather cheap compared to jumping from a plane.

I would like to jump out of perfectly good airplanes but that costs too much. Tons of costs for the plane, fuel, pilot, etc. etc... and then only lasts about 20-30 minutes if lucky? Probably not good to be jumping with severe winds or heavy thunderstorms and lots of lighting, 19F-40F might be too cold for jumping, but all that is fine for riding and just adds more interest.

So I jumped on the wing and asked it where she wanted to go today. It said "skydiving".

Libraries are full of stuff I don\'t know.

Riding can go from relaxing to a rush in just a piece of a second.

My wife once asked me who should get my Wing when I die. I told her that with any luck there won't be Wing left to give to anyone.

2003 GL1800
2007 GL1800
