April Fools Flop…
Last week’s Weekly Notable motorcycle article “Harley Announces Livewire to Offer Customizable Note Option” was an April Fool’s joke by the folks at rideapart.com that I thought would be fun to share with all of you. I truly enjoyed putting last week’s Weekly Notable together, dropping in hints that were perhaps too far of a stretch, and I hope I got at least one of you to smile.
Conversely, the article I referenced concerning the Ford Ecoboost pumping in V8 soundtrack is in fact true – which should get at least one of you smile as well.
We will return to our regularly scheduled content next week.
Enjoy the ride of YOUR life!

Increased crude oil prices continue to drive gasoline higher by 50 cents per gallon so far in 2019. Crude oil continues to be driven by supply and demand. Last fall’s forecasts of slowing oil consumption have not proven out and mid-western floods, unplanned outages, transit disruptions, and OPEC cuts have hammered the supply side.
An eye-opening (for me anyway) article covering a recent review of the new Swedish electric bike named KALK. I had not previously considered the classism and political implications of owning a motorcycle, I guess I still don’t.
