Motorcycles are made from cows!
« on: January 24, 2017, 08:45:06 AM »

In the WTF category, somehow a trade battle over beef is affecting motorcycle sales. I can't even fathom this level of stupidity.

If this somehow goes through, I'm betting you're going to start seeing more bikes at the 501cc mark.

I see no connection whatsoever between the two. Stupidity is alive and well.

Our wonderful government at work.  In 2009 all motorcycles deemed to be made for kids were pulled from sales floor because they contained materials(lead)  dangerous to children.  Government intelligence at it best.

Well of course there's a connection.  I mean, how any RTEs are to go get cheeseburgers or steaks?

Haha—'Great!'

You just can't make this stuff up:

“There is no logical link between motorcycles and beef,” said Wayne Allard, AMA vice president of government relations. “It is absurd..."

Absurd, indeed.
