Well, that discussion went down the political pretty quickly.

I admire those who still put a lot of effort into such events to aid their communities, but face it, "bike night" events have passed their prime... along with their usual attendees.
When the hotel buffet is a bigger draw than the wet tee shirt contest, it's time to start calling these events something else. And uh, there ain't many 60 year-old women anybody wants to see in a wet tee shirt anyhow.
Wipe the red outta your eyes boys. I'm one of ya! Just pointing out the facts.

Here's something else you won't see in York anymore! WFO racing on one of the best cushion tracks in the east. Thanks city of York.

Don't be sorry. Sounds to me like you just described a Professional American Politician

I didn't take that statement so much as a diss to the current customer base but corporate weasel speak for "we're saving money."

In addition to factory tours, the open house had factory demo rides. Since you have to hand over your life story and a DNA sample to get one of the little cards, they have a **** ton of data from it. Probably looked at the overall expense of that day plus how many of those demo rides turned into actual sales, and decided the return on investment wasn't there to justify it.

Too bad, but life goes on. Like Michael Corleone said: it's not personal, it's strictly business.
