Today is a mix of wild news from Daytona to Los Angeles.
Half the gang is in Daytona Beach kickin’ the sand. Some are planning for Arizona Bike Week next month. Others are making plans for the Smoke Out and I’m planning a run to 13 Palms to Dr. Hamster’s digs with some girls, one who wants me to write another mystery novel.
We will dig in the desert to find Bob T. and then slip over to the other side of the 10 freeway to hook up with more girls in Palm Streams. But hell, I need to peel back to the shop to help Frankie Jr. fix his Dyna, and register his Spitfire Motorcycles FXR. Hang on.

THE BIKERNET UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER ANALYSIS OF NEW TRUMP HEALTH CARE PACKAGE--
The American Medical Association has weighed in on Trump's proposed health care package to replace Obama-care:
The Allergists were in favor of scratching it; but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it; but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.
Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception; while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" While the Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"
The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness; while the Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.
The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new
face on the matter."
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward; but the Urologists were
pissed off at the whole idea.
Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out; leaving the entire decision up
to the assholes in Washington!

AT 140 MPH ON SNOW OR 200 MPH ON PAVEMENT, RANDALL FUELS HIS PASSION WITH VP FUELS--
Cliff Randall is passionate about most things in life, but perhaps most about speed – drag racing on snowmobiles and running mile events on motorcycles. Whether on two wheels or snow, Randall is fueled by VP Racing Fuels, a company that shares his passion for performance.
“We live and breathe performance on snow and pavement up here in Toronto. It’s our passion,” said Randall. “When you’re topping out above 140 mph on sleds and 200 mph on bikes, you need the best products and support from your suppliers. We’d be lost without the fabulous expertise and support from VP Racing Fuels, particularly Randy Lungal, our go-to guy at VP-Ontario.”
“Over the years, we’ve done quite a bit of collaboration with VP on product development and quality control. That’s one of VP’s strengths. Most of them are racers themselves and they don’t confine themselves to the laboratory – they get out in the field and on the track with their customers,” Randall continued.
“At this point, it’s been 17 years that we’ve been using VP fuels and in recent years, we’ve found C12 to be the most consistent, best performing fuel for both our sleds and bikes,” added Randall. “In most cases, we’ve found we don’t need every bit of C12’s 112 octane, so we mix it with pump gas to yield the 100 octane that appears to optimize performance in our Ski-Doo MachZ 1000cc 2 stroke race sled and Kawasaki ZX1270.”
“Working with Cliff is a real pleasure – it’s rewarding to be in a position to help support someone’s passion,” said Randy Lungal, owner of VP-Ontario. “He’s not in it for the money, but rather for the challenge and the joy of competing. Win or lose, Cliff is always well-prepared with the best looking equipment in the field and represents VP really well.”
VP Racing Fuels is best known as the World Leader in Race Fuel Technology, fueling champions in virtually every form of motorsport on land, sea and air since 1975.

QUICK, OPEN THE BIKERNET BAD JOKE LIBRARY--
A funeral procession pulled into Pressley Cemetery. Several car loads of family members followed a black truck towing a boat with a coffin in it. A passer-by remarked, "That guy must have been a very avid fisherman."
"Oh, he still is," remarked one of the mourners. "As a matter of fact, he's headed off to the lake as soon as we bury his wife."
President Trump has proposed that we build a wall to keep the Mexicans out of the U.S. and there are some that say it will not work. Well China has proved that it will work. Over 2,000 years ago they built a wall and today there are absolutely no Mexicans in China.
