    Avon Owner for Life

    My tire life was just fine, but I put new front and back on just because. In back went an Avon AV72 (200-55/r18 as I recall). Monday (while it was 93 out), I picked up a nail and found myself baking by the side of the interstate. Long story short, I call Avon sales and they tell me every...

    Pre-VMAX Owner - about to buy

    Hi Experts and Gurus, I have my lustful eye on a 96 VMAX 1200. It's been holed up near a beach but still looks good and rides well. Registration has run out. What do I have to look for to ensure I do not buy a lemon? Thanks for you help.

    Herre is an article I ran-across, I like to read stuff like what this guy was able to do in his life. He was a CA Bay-Area shop owner who was well-respected for his skills but who died at only 66. I think there are many more tales about him to be told. Here is one: A GIANT HAS FALLEN: KENNY...
