    Hey Cyril:
    I’m thinkin’ you should get your loyal Daytona-Bike-Week-bound moto-bloggers together somewhere during the event for a “fix the motorcycle world” BS session. What d ya say? Or are you planning to hide over there? We’ll find ya’!

    Hey, you in Orlando. since you read and comment, you should animate the BS session. No chance Cyril is going to hide. Quite the opposite.

    OK. I’m not much of an animator (I’m actually quite boring …), but I’d be glad to help put something together. Any day/time/place preference?

    It’s different. The Ratty Rag is a one-time event publication. It’s true that we can’t publish about all free city and local publications in America.
