    Now this is interesting....

    Ok, when you say "yawn inducer" do you mean things like revving the crap out of a new demo bike?

    I dunno about you, Rob, but yawning is not one of the things this video makes me feel like doing...

    there has to be a point? other than you being old and crotchety and far removed from your younger hooligan days?

    Reving the crap out of a new demo bike? That's why man invented rev limiters.

    Once you get a chance to do it yourself you'll giggle like a banshee.

    I bet you'll will find is as exciting as I did. Much more so than posturing on some internet forum.

    You don't get out much anymore do you.

    I was playing hooligan with a S1000RR, what three weeks ago.

    Like sunrise it happens first in New England.

    I did burnouts when I was a teenager. My dad paid for my tires in those days....

    Kids!

    For the amount of rubber wasted, I could have done about 8000 kilometers of great Alpine roads.

    Did you yawn when your dealer, Max, did it a while back on a GS?

    No it was priceless.

    Rather than do it out back he rode his GS down to the Harley dealer that was having a big party with a burn out pit.

    That tire was a knobbie and he pretty much closed the party, Just imagine how much rubber you can burn when you're burning the knobs off af TKC.

    I mean really everyone expects the S1000RR to be a tire smoking machine but take a GS to a Harley dealer and close the show?

    That's panache.

    I see. And is it panache putting spikes all over your tires if you're just going to go up and down in a straight line then attempt three burnouts in front of the camera? I'm referring to the latest max video.

    okay, i'm done busting your balls. the key point is that you should embrace all things moto, rather than just those things that you think are cool or done by people you think are cool. be tolerant. open your mind and heart and harken back to the days of your youth when everything bike-related was cool. Okay?

    Thanks.

    Your friend,
