I'm famous... well, not really

Our local fishwrap, the Omaha World-Herald, called me a few days ago about a story they were doing on motorcyclists. It was supposed to be much more detailed than this, but still I guess it's not all bad, serving as sort of a PSA for the cagers to be watching for us again.

Cool! I belong to a women's motorcycle club, and we have magazine and newspaper articles written about us from time to time, portraying motorcylists in a postive light, similar to your article! Well done!

You just know that the reporter had to edit out about 25 paragraphs worth of Chain explaining every intricacy in minute detail.

And that was just on exhaust cans. He didn't even get started on photography or Rhino Ramps yet.

You know what's funny about this?! You're probably right! I talked about Fireblades and the FZ1OA group (really, I did!), the Rider School at MAM and the importance of wearing decent gear when street riding, etc. On and on.

I have a buddy who says I couldn't put it in a barrel without a bottom!
