Friends: A young friend of mine is preparing for a career in the US military. He's about to do the MEPS, I believe it's called, in prep for service in the Navy or Air Force. Would any of you active duty or retired service men or women have any advice for him? He's hoping to get started in his career quickly, but doesn't want to be relegated to a military career with a dead-end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks, -Paul

I've converted my (beloved) saltwater, reef tank, to a freshwater "Angel tank." Less maintenance and drama, but still relaxing visuals. 

It's a completely natural ecosystem. Plants, fish, invertebrates and my house plants are diggin' the "purged water". Talk about symbiotic!   :-)

It is a shameful state of affairs for motorcycle racing in the US! Is this a result of the "Harley effect?" (An acceptance of slow, ill-handling motorcycles.)
On Thursday afternoon in his home state, two-time World Superbike champ and long-time MotoGP pilot Colin Edwards announced that his racing days would come to an end following the conclusion of the 2014 season. Edwards' impending retirement not only closes…

I'd much rather see a young man/woman jump at the challenges of building a more efficient machine, a suspension of genius, a ABS that is next generation, or even a revolution in wheel technology.... than another bolt-on/polish show reminiscent of what discovery channel has pushed the last few years. These kids really are buying into black leather, backwards studies of efficiencies, while loosing all modesty and interest in skill for the sake of 'cool'. Please, market all you want to the mid-lifers. Bolt on a 'custom' piece of mass produced chrome. I DIG NICE BIKES, REALLY, but know there is a trade off in the loss of passion for racing and actually understanding how these monsters work. Where power comes from, and why along with how to HARNESS and CONTROL that power should be a mainstay instead of sidetrack. Hmm, almost into the red zone of the rant-o-meter, guess I need to ride. ;-)

Crashed: Riding dirt bikes since age 12 and fast performance street bikes, since age 19, yesterday I had my first collision with a 4 wheel vehicle.

It was a hit and run, and I definitely came out on the short end of the stick.

It was a routine ride, in light traffic, on the Concours 14, when a box truck moved and signaled left, but abruptly turned right -- directly into my path. Although l live to ride another day and my gear saved me from more severe injuries, my Concours is pretty trashed and I've sustained, what appeared to be broken ribs, a broken ankle, a very swollen shoulder and a concussion. After many hours in the ER, nothing proved broken, but nonetheless, I'm severely beaten to shit.

Although I ride uber defensively in traffic, this guy signaled a left turn, moved left and then whipped a quick right directly into my path.

I suspect I'll be fine, but please let my experience be a reminder to all riders, that any driver, at any given moment, can make a mistake. In this case, the perpetrator drives away unscathed and un-arrested, but I'll be recovering for weeks. :-(

Brutale 800

So I'm ready to close the deal on a #Ducati #Hypermotard , when my dealer shows me the 2014 #MVAgusta #Brutale 800.

Anyone have any first hand experience with MV's or comments/feedback on the Brutale? Reviews seem to be VERY positive...

The second and third free practice sessions at the Losail circuit in Qatar saw Andrea Dovizioso put in a good run, the Italian ending up fourth quickest today. His team-mate Cal Crutchlow however had some problems in finding the right set-up on his Desmosedici GP14 and thanks also to a crash, was unable to go any higher than twelfth place.
