I posted this in the thread labeled "Drift" but then realized something this important really needs to be have it's own thread. Take it for what it's worth. So little time so little mind's.
What ever happened to all the good riders with heart's of gold!!?
Oh well... separating the mildly interesting from the really interesting is always fun too.
I sense a not so good bunch here these days compared to just a year ago.
Take Travis for instance. He gave his word to meet up with me then reniggered on his word and didn't even call.
In the motorcycle riding world I grew up in and lived in for decades; someone who doesn't keep their word is shunned permanently.
I've softened a lot since those days and accept today's kids (millennial's and younger) just don't have the same sense of honor we did and still do. That's fine and at this point I really could care less. I mean really; does anyone actually care what happens to the future of these kids who don't even care themselves?
I used to care but now that I see they don't care; why should I or anyone else?
Let's just drink beer, whiskey, do massive amounts of drugs and fade into oblivion. Without a generation that gives a shit to follow us; why should we care?
I really wanted to leave a better country than what we had handed to us to the next generation but now I see that is a total waste of time. They won't appreciate it or take care of it even if we could possibly do that now after almost seven years of the worst possible President in the history of this young and failing country.
What's even worse; these youngn's are going to leave the most decimated country that was once amazing to a bunch of kids what have no idea how to handle all the debt and problems these millennial and us left them.
The word 'sad' doesn't even begin to describe what we have done to them. Shame on us. Shame on us ALL!!
At least this great experiment was pretty good for a hundred years or more.
