A CNN REPORTER WALKS INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD TAVERN AND IS ABOUT TO ORDER A DRINK WHEN HE SEES A GUY AT THE END OF THE BAR WEARING A "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" HAT. IT DIDN'T TAKE AN EINSTEIN TO KNOW THE GUY WAS A DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER.

THE CNN GUY SHOUTS OVER TO THE BARTENDER, LOUDLY ENOUGH THAT EVERYONE IN THE BAR COULD HEAR, "DRINKS FOR EVERYONE IN HERE, BARTENDER, EXCEPT FOR THAT TRUMP SUPPORTER."

AFTER THE DRINKS WERE HANDED OUT THE TRUMP GUY GIVES THE CNN GUY A BIG SMILE, WAVES AT HIM AND SAYS, IN AN EQUALLY LOUD VOICE, "THANK YOU!"

THIS INFURIATES THE CNN REPORTER. SO HE ONCE AGAIN LOUDLY ORDERS DRINKS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT THE GUY WEARING THE TRUMP HAT. AS BEFORE, THIS DOESN'T SEEM TO BOTHER THE TRUMP GUY. HE JUST CONTINUES TO SMILE AND AGAIN YELLS, "THANK YOU!"

SO THE CNN GUY AGAIN LOUDLY ORDERS DRINKS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT THE TRUMP GUY. AND AGAIN THE TRUMP GUY JUST SMILES AND YELLS BACK, "THANK YOU!"

AT THAT POINT THE AGGRAVATED CNN REPORTER ASKS THE BARTENDER, "WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH THAT TRUMP SUPPORTER? I'VE ORDERED THREE ROUNDS OF DRINKS FOR EVERYONE IN THE BAR BUT HIM AND ALL THE SILLY ASS DOES IS SMILE AND THANK ME. IS HE NUTS?"

"NOPE," REPLIES THE BARTENDER. "HE OWNS THE PLACE."

One of the reasons (if not one of the critically important reasons) I bought a Concours is that early in the morning the day before election day I emerged from the plant to find the rear tire on my Suzuki almost flat.  It turned out to be all the way flat, I think, but I had no tools and no air and it was so early nothing was open and I wanted to escape from the job site ASAP so I cajoled under power to the nearest cycle shop, which is a Kawasaki dealer.  I waited until they opened then asked if they could fix my tire.  They could, but it would take a while.  So I wandered up and down the 30 feet of bikes in the showroom and eventually decided the Concours was a real nice bike.  I couldn't buy a new or nice used one right then but the seed was planted.
Meanwhile, the sales guy starts talking to me and it was 2008, and he asks me if I like Obama.  He tells me that if Obama gets elected his taxes will go up so high that he will have to lay off all his mechanics and shut down his business.
Within a year or so I bought a used Concours and I've been buying parts & tires from that dealer whenever I need them.
As they say in Sci Fi, it's the end of the beginning  :popcorncouple: :campfire: :deadhorse: :breakcomp:
