Flash: Motorcyclists Love Motorcycles

Motorcyclists have apparently never loved motorcycles as much as they do right this minute.  Apparently, according to J.D. Power, motorcyclists think their motorcycles are the tits.

Overall motorcycle ownership satisfaction averages 814 (based on a 1,000-point scale) in 2008, up 5 points from 2007. While all five components driving satisfaction improve in 2008, the most notable increases occur in the areas of cost of ownership and product quality.

I’d be a happy motorcyclist, too…if I had a motorcycle.

There’s been no progress at all on getting the FJR into a shop, no contact with the other drivers insurance company, or any other measurable sign that we’re moving towards resolving  my damages that resulted from the accident.

On the plus side, while I still have achey legs, I was finally able to start walking without a cane yesterday.   Still limping, but the cane isn’t necessary any more, so I got that going for me.
