Steve Jobs - he's a goner kids

An intense guy... aged 56... worth billions... made some significant fun along the way in the computer industry, and with larger media... I am sure there will be many Steve Jobs' bios coming soon, although I always liked Steve Wozniak's contributions and ideals much more than Jobs' business and sale...

Re: Brough Superior SS100 motorbike set to fetch record £300

Maybe Jay Leno doesnt yet have the right SS100 in his collection...

There is a funny epsiode of the British TV-series, Lovejoy, where they "fix-up" Lawrence of Arabia's Brough Superior for sale to a collector.

Re: NEW: The History of the Suzuki GSX-R750

The title of the first page is misleading adcopy vs journalism, stating "THE First Modern Race-Replica", although the text from Suzuki is less misleading stating "We had no real competitors in the market, other than factory racing machines."... when in fact at the time Suzuki's o...

Re: 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale

My memories of the NR750 are off a bit I think. I did only glance at a pic similar to your first image: profile shot. The bike does look nicer than remembered.

QM: I don't think you can use the data of the Caterham 7...... completely different to a "normal" car. Amazing yet, but it's a kit car with very little other than an engine and frame. While Caterham's may be very simple cars, and although not quite normal in looks or accoutrement's to mos...

Re: 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO - COOL WALL VOTE: AWESOME

It's amazing how little a guy like you can learn because you're so busy insulting someone else when they show you that you missed the point. If you werent so foolish you could easily find pieces of my varied riding experience on this web-site covering the mid-80s to present. But instead you *choose*...
