Steve had a piece on motorcycles and the riding thereof on his original site, and he just posted it here!
Read, and learn.
And I do not 'whine'. I 'plead'(in a high-pitched voice)
Update: Right after I posted this, my daughter sent me this:
"I was driving home one day and this guy on a motorcycle stopped at a stop sign, and as I drove past, sort of tipped over. I turned around to see if he was ok, but he'd gotten up and hauled the bike up, and seemed more embarassed than hurt."
God, talk about timing!
