No, it's not related to dirt bikes, but it was so true that, well, you decide:

"Two minutes in Stewart's company shows you that he's scary smart, and not the faux smart so familiar from fast-talking celebrities who have
learned a few snappy lines about current events. And that's not to say that Ben Affleck isn't a nice guy."
-- John Colapinto's interview of Jon Stewart in Rolling Stone (October 28, 2004).
While killing time in an airport, I picked up the March '04 copy of Dirt Rider magazine. Ron Lawson's column, "From the Saddle", covered his Seven
Simple Rules for riding partners. Here's rule #1:

Never trust a man with a bike that's too pretty. Pretty bikes don't belong in box canyons. Pretty bikes don't go up hills that require four or five
tries. Pretty bikes are no fun to be around. If you show up with a bike that has no graphics, that has plastic that's roughly the same texture as
Saddam Hussein's complexion, that tells me you're ready to ride and that complaints will be few.

I think Ron and I would get along just fine.
2001 Quote of the Year:
"John - Sorry to hear about your crash. Good thing you're not still dating the wannabe doctor chick. You'd be getting an earful for sure. When I'm hurt my wife just
shakes her head and tells me to keep up with the life insurance."

--Bill Steele, fellow off-road racer, now living in upstate New York, after learning of my shoulder injury in August 2001.
Well folks, ask and you shall receive.  A few years ago I found a nice note in my inbox from Dr. Larry in Florida, thanking me for the information on changing fork oil.  Here is an excerpt from Dr.
Larry's e-mail:

"On another subject-your e mail address.  Very frustrating to find on  your website.  Irritating actually.  All I wanted to do was thank you  for your info.  Took me way too much time to find it!  If I
wasn't so  grateful I would have given up."

Apparently Dr. Larry must have first tried the john.stichnoth@bite-me.com address, which only works if you want to e-mail your complaints.  But since there are nice people like Dr. Larry
who actually want to take time to thank me for the information contained in this web site,  here is my e-mail address that accepts compliments only:

I would also like to add that Dr. Larry, who appears by his title to be a real doctor, i.e. one who heals broken bones and other motorcycle-related pain, rides a dirt bike.  That makes him cool.  
Thanks for your comments, Dr. Larry.
