    Yeah, it is a good book. It was nice to have so many of my long-held opinions articulated so well.

    Sitting in my garage, trying to reason through yet another solution to a particularly stubborn and troublesome rearset/centerstand/exhaust/kicker problem my mind sometimes drifts to the bullshit ego-politics at work.

    You know, I've just about got the bike sorted out. As for work, there's no fixing the mind games, power plays and management double-speak....concrete vs. abstract problem solving indeed.


    I loved the chapter about the Magna.

    I just got it, thus far an interesting read......giant brain on that guy!
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
