    Ride 5/22

    Sad to hear this. I'm going to try to ride this weekend. My ex killed last weekend's plans.

    Did you leave something on and it drained the battery? In all my years of riding this has never come up.

    OOC, what is the situation where you needed to jump start a bike?

    Anyone have a good explanation why tax returns are such a big deal? I've heard some people say that Trump is hiding illegal activity such as bribes and a laundry list of other things. Wouldn't the IRS already have dozens agents validating taxes of every billionaire in the US? I assume illegal activity is something the IRS already looks for?

    Who has a Speed Triple?

    If KTM is having productions problems, they may be doing you a favor. KTM makes great performing machines, but the ownership experience isn't always as great.

    Chain lube myth

    It's a Kawasaki Cruiser. It's never handled perfectly.

    Honest question.

    Felon's shouldn't vote. Because law abiding citizens have done a great job of putting ethical, moral, non-criminals in office...right?

    Still think the Street is the better handling triple.

    I would also pick the Street. Only things the 1050 does better is straight line speed, and less shifting.

    At any given moment they are many government sponsored acts occurring to topple-destabilize-stabilize-manipulate-pressure-influence-prop up regimes all around the world. Most of them will never see the lights of day, they are "black ops" where the dots will never be connected in a public way. It not just the US. Many countries do this, even China, which you have an oddly high opinion of. The world is a scary place, man.

    Honest question.

    While I don't have any real issue with felons voting, bringing this up is a stupid political move by Sanders. The political fear mongers (on the right in this case), will do what political fear mongers do.

    You'd prefer military action on US soil? Do you think China's military spending would be higher if their troops were actually paid respectable wages?

    Honest question.

    I don't see felons voting as a problematic. I doubt there'd be a big a wave of new voters that would change the outcome of elections.

    Ummm, 2nd highest military spending in the world. They might be first but it's cheaper to steal military technology than buy it or develop it yourself.

    China is growing fast because they had very little to start with and are basically in the middle of their industrial revolution. When they are more developed, when regulations, working conditions, and wages catch up to the rest of the civilized world...when they stop the gov't sponsored stealing intellectual property their growth will slow. It's BEYOND STUPID to think China is nirvana and the US is a dumpster fire. For example: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34592336

    Washington DC is a dirty place where money & power is routinely wielded to influence, control, and shape the outcomes of all things political. If the amount of resources spent to investigate this whole shit show, were spent to investigate any other US President they would find plenty of unflattering, possibly-criminal things. When you pull back those political covers you're going to find plenty of shit that was never meant to see the light of day. I don't defend any of that, but I am aware enough to realize that's what happens. The fact that there is no "smoking gun" is enough for me in this situation. I never cared for Trump long before he ever considered politics. He is not someone that I would enjoy spending time with. He is not a role model. His personality is not "Presidential." He's arrogant and oddly consumed with his image, etc. I do agree with some, but not all of his policies, however. He's right on tariffs and trade agreements. He's right that other countries need to step up and pay their fair share (NATO for example), and stop treating the US like it's an ATM. He's right about illegal immigration in the respect that it is a huge humanitarian crisis and getting worse. Our immigration laws are a joke, something both Reps and Dems have said for years. I don't think a wall is the best option...the best option is for Congress to pass stronger, sensible immigration laws and ACTUALLY enforce them, but we all know that isn't going to happen. So, If I'm forced to choose between a wall or nothing...I'll take the wall please. In 2020, I'd be happy to vote for a candidate that's better then Trump. But I haven't seen one yet. The Dems seem to want to continue parade out race-baiting-talking-heads, with no real platform besides "we don't like Trump." I'm going to need more than that.
