Motorcycle question.

Posted By david white

I'm going to be in the market for a new motorcycle. The goal is a motorcycle that can comfortably do long distance touring, and is reliable. I have somewhat narrowed in down between the HD Electra Glide and Honda Gold wing.
I'm currently riding a VTX1300C which I'm happy with but it's not for long distance.
I know the ultimate question can be answered by renting the 2 and taking them for a ride, but nevertheless, I would be interested in others personal experience with either of these 2 motorcycles, or others in their class.

Currently, the pluses for the Electra Glide are the number of dealerships in case there is some major work that needs to be done beyond my scope, it includes brakes that are ABS, it is American made and is a beautiful motorcycle. The Honda lacks the number of dealerships, seems to incorporate a lot of plastic in their look, but I can't image a Honda being anything but reliable. The weird thing is every motorcycle in that class includes ABS but in the Gold Wing it costs extra, a lot extra.

So once again, does anyone have experience with these bikes or others in their class they can recommend or comments?

Lowest Annual Deficit Since '08

Posted By david white

Right on track?

A half trillion dollar deficit by September, bringing the national debt to $18 is right on track?

This, per the CBO, is the track the US is on.

In other words, more debt, thanks to your President.

Laws do not apply to anyone in this administration. This administration is a bad joke.

As usual, the Obama admin is either lying or incompetent or both.

It's both.

Why in the world would a parent put their nine year old girl in a situation like this? What were they trying to teach her? Heck, when my daughter was nine years old she was playing with Barbie's and reading "The Babysitters Club" books. Burgers and Bullets was the name of the operation in Arizona where you can eat a greasy burger and then for the heck of it let your little girl use an Uzi with a fully loaded clip. What could possibly go wrong? The instructor was a military veteran but he make too many mistakes. He was on the wrong side of her and was leaning into the line of fire. Not to be harsh but it sure is a way to cleanse the gene pool. The poor kid was just doing what her parents wanted her to do and will probably suffer mentally for the rest of her life. Just senseless. :S Where else could this happen in the developed world but here in the good old USA. I hope OSHA shuts them down for good along with changing the age limit rules of any other gun range that is authorized to have automatic weapons. This one makes me mad.

There is an endless supply of stupid people in this country. That's all I have to say about that.

Please get this man to an asylum soon. He is utterly obsessed with the Koch Brothers. I can only surmise that because of his money he isn't sitting in a straightjacket.

According to him, if you don't tow the line of AGW, you are a contemptible human being. 8O

So what we have is a rich Democrat, who didn't create his wealth but merely inherited it, exercising his right to free speech. To complain about rich Conservatives, who created their own wealth, who in Mr. Kennedy's mind shouldn't be entitled to free speech, but in fact, imprisoned for it. Someone please get Mr. Kennedy his brown shirt.

I'm sure he'll run for office as a Democrat, and I'm even more certain that Democrats will vote for him in overwhelming numbers.

Don't snort don't tell.

Is Texas poised to turn to a blue state?

Thankfully, it doesn't look like it:

Wendy Davis was roundly stomped into the Texas dirt by Greg Abbott. It wasn't even close.

I guess her support of late term abortions didn't sit well with the folks down there. A total of 38% of the vote is about as pathetic a showing as it gets. So long Wendy, have a nice life...

Everyone here knew she was going to lose, it was just a question of by how much. The woman will be a footnote in Texas history.
