Why are we surprised when a horrendous violent act happens when as a society violence is considered entertainment? At 67 years of age I can remember the first time I saw someone supposedly killed on a movie screen. The movie was "The Red Badge of Courage". The victim ...

Interestingly and won't say who and at what dealer told me: 1. K1600b top speed was limited due to increased vibrations at speeds over 120MPH and poor aerodynamics; 2. R-nine-T is an oilhead because of excess oilhead engines made. Any of it true?...

Always enjoyed the look of the silver rims on an RT. From the colors I've had callisto grey is my number one favorite with blue as the least favorite one. Looked at a blue 2018 RT at Battley and can't understand BMW's thought process on color combination (gold calipers with chrom...
