    Wow....this place has changed!

    So what is the origin of the BillVon-is-a-duck meme? IIRC it predated my joining Dizzy, but I've never heard the backstory.

    Hey Lisa, you out there?

    Ugh! When I was ~20 I bought an HD, then 2 of my buddies also bought HDs. One night one of them was riding on an interstate with another guy he knew, when he felt heat on his legs. He looked down to see flames coming off the engine and around his legs. He hopped up onto the seat on his knees, then while kneeling, used the front brake to slow down while steering toward the median. While still rolling, he bailed off into the median while the bike did a reenactment of the final scene of "Easy Rider".

    But is it really a Harley if S&S built the engine?

  8. Interesting story of a Cirrus suffering engine failure, followed by deployment of BRS, then "landing" in the wilds of Canada, followed by an air rescue. If you read down through the comments, some of the SAR guys posted to it.

    I think Tom Scott made this new video just for Nat:

    Nat: What types of greetings do you prefer in PMs from your stalkers?

    RIP: Roy Batty

    Someone pointed this out: "Blade Runner" was set in 2019, so Rutger died the same year as his Roy Batty character.
