It's a Honda!!

Ok so my travels to the UK show me weird and wonderful sights. One thing I do like is how we always seem to have muscle bikes over here, I use that term loosely as they're not big V8 engines but just look bad ass! I'm referring more to the retro bikes, Honda Hornets, Triumph Triples, super motos, quads (I know that's an odd ball), Vmax etc. I guess it's why I don't like extended swinging arms and a bunch of chrome. So here's a little gem I thought looked cool lol

Does that also include when you hug another guy, Rossco ?
I find that the 'shoulder touch', with a handshake at the same time, is more acceptable in the States.
Black/Colored & Hispanics seem to be less homophobic, in my experience. So, what's it like in Canada, I wonder, since I'll be in Toronto this Summer ?

Thanks for sharing, Rossco. Because, if I remember my kindergarten lessons, 'sharing is caring !"

Take Care.

I'm hoping to make the KTM my backup ride, Rossco. The owner, Charles, is a 61 year old lawyer from Dallas, who hasn't ridden it in over a year & is really interested in the new KTM Adventure bike instead. I hope to persuade him to sell the RC8R to me.
I'm supposed to visit him to watch the Isle of man TT next weekend.

Wish me luck for the future purchase.

Heck, I'm a friendly guy, Extrapolator. Aren't doctors supposed to be "friendly" & put you at ease ?!?

Looks like I'm not achieving that particular goal with you, Extrapolator ! Ha, ha, ha !!

Take Care, Guys !

Hey Doc, that's some proper bedside manners you're giving that RC8R
Are you that way with all your patients, or just the ones with v-twins?
