Le Moto

4810 – with a premiere writing instrument such as the gold nibbed Mont Blanc you need a suitable means to carry it around. A continent buster such as the burly ’99 Triumph Trophy will do. Sign your John Hancock on the contract down in Marseille, pop le biro in the pannier, zoom up the autoroute to Geneva for supper.

Jake’s Auto

Dempster Street – passed a couple of parked American bikes as I drove between job sites today. Hefty Milwaukee Iron owned by garage mechanics. Well, when you spend all day crammed under an automobile, swingin’ your leg over a motorcycle at the end of the day is a perfect antidote.

Evaporate a brine inland lake allowing the salt to crystallize forming a flat hardback ‘roadway’. Perfect for long straight runs to see ‘how darn fast you can go!”
