    The Land of crazy over regulation. The liberal idea that everything should be acceptable, but we`ll regulate everything. It`s a real oxymoron philosophy.

    It took me awhile, but I figured it was a joke before I saw the date. Anything is possible in the land of fruits and nuts though. No offense to any fruits and nuts. Lol

    Lol, you got me. The fact that they do make regulations for everything in California, is what makes it believable.

    It says Happy April Fools Day at the bottom of the article !

    This would NEVER FLY anyway !!!!
    Way too many turbocharged vehicles to begin with - mind boggling amount of legislation to even come up with a way to deal with all those people and their vehicles, etc..
    And since its been a few years now of almost all OEMS selling turbo cars from their factories.... Yeah, let`s ban those too !!!
    Hilarious !

    Sadly, no one would even think that a posibility except for the fact that it said California. Then it hits you like... well they could do this. Sorry Dan, I know that’s home base these days.

    Ugliest .... Motorcycle .... Ever

    But seriously, Ron`s right (even a broken clock is right twice a day) about the `Busa. Dang thing will snap your neck off. I found it to be unwieldy and heavy and just too eager to kill me. Thing is, VERY FEW human beings can take advantage of that much power in a motorcycle, except maybe in a straight line. And that`s fine, if that`s what you`re into. I mean, who doesn`t love a blueprinted and blown Chevy SS? But I ain`t taking it to the mountains! Same with the `Busa.

    Around here, there`s a click of people that put extended swingarms on their Hayabusas, making a hard-to-steer motorcycle even harder. Silly to me. NOT THAT YOU ARE "THAT GUY" RAY.

    We’ve been 2 inches of snow one morning, sunny the next, snow the next, sunny the next. No snow levels like you’ve had.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    Ron, a modern Corvette is a far cry to the Chevy SS I had in mind with my comment above. I was thinking more like 1969 red or black SS with the two white stripes.


    NICE PICS by the way! Here`s me on that same stretch of road, closer to fall.

    Speaking of North Carolina, this kind of scene sure makes me homesick (until winter hits).
