Seen anything interesting in traffic lately?

I recently sat along our town's main cruising street and counted how many motorcycles went by. 15 in an hour. That's up from when gas was cheaper! We'll see about when winter gets here, though.

One of my professors has a Triumph 900, the classic-looking one. He wants to get rid of it. He wants to trade for a Harley. I don't have a Harley. It's still his.

One of the security guards nearly took his own head off on his sportbike of unknown bloodline by coming screaming around a corner and almost clipping the No Parking sign.

On my way home, a very nicely done cafe racer that looked like a modern-parts Vincent passed me on the highway.

On the way across town, we were at a light next to a long, low, and loud chopper, with an ultradetailed paintjob.

A few months ago, we were at a light when a '24 Harley went by on the cross street.

I have a bike that can move under it's own power, which you have all seen if you've read about my custom seat at

Seven Road Kings

Five scooters, two of which were of the sewing-machine, park-on-the-sidewalk-and-piss-us-all-off sort

Two Victorys

I lately saw a VW bug trike.

I forgot to mention: there's a guy I see cruising around every now and then riding a trike with a Jaguar V12. I think I've mentioned him someplace before, but anyway, it's a cool one! Inspires me to buuild a 6 3/4 L Rolls trike... almost. I'd like to not go bankrupt in the process!
Actually if it's anything like here you can get yourself an old roller at minimal cost and the engine will be fine, one thing is that the old bentley's with the same engine are usually a bit cheaper...

The JagV12 seems like a great engine for a trike it'd be smooth as butter...

One interesting one I saw was a starlet turned trike, after a while the owner found the pokey four a bit boring and dropped in the engine from a souped up starlet turbo, that trike was insane and sounded so good, it had open pipes for a while and whatever way the acoustics worked with the shape of them it sounded like it was always coming toward you and going away from you at once...

haha FF want's souped to be soaped making the phrase soaped up starlet
Oooh! I want a Bentley!

Bentleys for everyone!
Bentley is my surname. I guess I probably had a great-great-great uncle, or 5th cousin involved in the company (before it was sold to Rolls). They should just GIVE me one!

Wouldn't it be nice, just be given a car like that... family benefits... We've got a Bentley/Rolls dealership here in Denver. I'm pretty sure they do credit/bank account checks before they let you test drive, or everybody who wanted to be anybody would be in there acting all rich. Of course, if not, I have a Rolls to go drive and a bridge in New York to buy and all that jazz.
At least my name's not Kia, Daewoo, or Yugo! Yeah, I knew of a guy that was told by the (Pontiac) dealer "Come back with your Daddy, if you want to test drive this car." He bought the car on the spot! What a way to sell a car to a self-sensitive young man! I would've gone across the street, and bought a car from the OTHER car dealer.

What nerve! Unless I'm buying new and want to order specific options, I don't like buying from dealers, for reasons like that one. I'd rather buy from a private citizen.
I'm the same way. I have a friend that's a retired dealer, and he's taught me most of the tricks. Dealers take almost all of their customers for a ride! I get a kick out of reading articles about how to negotiate with a car dealer. They get about 80% of the "money saving tips" wrong. Private individuals get rid of vehicles for different reasons and there are TONS of bargains out there. The car I'm driving now, I have less than $600 in (total). I've already driven it 72,000 miles. Drive a new car off the lot and it depreciates 20%! I'll stick to private sellers!
