    You should see if your old house is available to rent and watch them fly by from your own front doorstep.

    I didn't think to look to see whether some were riding discs or not. I did notice that some wheel changes were comically slow, especially from a neutral service motorcycle.

I would go buy a USA Today so I could see what the results were the previous day, things are much better now.
    LOL. Remember Adrian Karsten?! Wow. That guy was worthless. Unfortunate end, notwithstanding.
