Shift Of the Gears - Best Buy Selling Motorcycles?
What do you all think? In thirty years will we be heading to Best Buy or Fry's or Circuit City to buy a motorcycle? Will fake leather and armor clad riders sporting eco-friendly tattoos gather behind the local strip malls to eat artery friendly BBQ while telling stories of how loud and noisy and smelly old motorcycles used to be.
Will talk change from Synthetic versus Dino to Fuel Cell versus Nickel Cadmium?
Will us 'old timers' lament the passing of adventure riding? Cruising? Chrome? Loud Pipes? Poker Runs? Long Distance Touring? The tactile sensation of the opposite sex in real leather?
Luckily, most of us will likely have ridden into the sunset before this happens. Thoughts?
