Confounding the calumniators and apostates

When you gonna buy a Harley, old timer?
I was (seriously) going to write a post about the decay of BMW and German engineering in general (e.g., the VW magic diesel. I went out last week with malice in my heart to buy a replacement for my BMW, which has about a hundred thousand miles on it, and beeps and blinks over every little thing (it assumes a briefcase on the passenger seat is an unsecured toddler).And then I saw what the instrument cluster of (say) an Acura RLX looks like (Nintendo cartridges sold separately).Oh, HELL no.Then yesterday I drove two teenagers to Santa Cruz and back in the BMW. The ride was smooth, the turns were handled with ease, the stereo played music, and the whole affair was absolutely zero hassle. #2 son said: "you know something? This is a cool car."So I'll keep it. My next car will be a bicycle, by a beach and a coffee shop, not far from a commuter rail station, in a tropical country.
