Remember when Smash Mouth and some other bands so terrible that Trapt made it on to the promotional materials performed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota back in August? It caused approximately 260,000 cases of COVID-19 according to one study, which means it probably affected more lives than anything any of the artists had done since appearing on the Shrek soundtrack.

Not to be outdone, Florida hosted its own super-spreader event full of awful acts last night. Headlined by Vanilla Ice (no, really), the Trump campaign event saw approximately 500 guests attend a mask-optional night at the soon-to-be-former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort. In addition to the ’90s fossil, Mike Love continued his trend of pretending to represent the Beach Boys in support of Trump, despite Brian Wilson and Al Jardine condemning him for using the band’s name at a

Few motorcycle manufacturers have been as successful at sensing what consumers want as well as Honda has. In 1958, Honda caught lightning in a bottle by selling the Super Cub to non-riders and bicycle riders. In a subsequent attempt to gain more riders, Honda attempted to bring new riders to the two-wheel lifestyle.

How? A popular belief is that Honda’s automotive design team dreamed up a motorcycle to attract car drivers to motorcycling. But the reality is a bit different.

This is the Honda Pacific Coast 800. Launched in 1989, this futuristic-looking bike had some ideas that would still be good today, over 30 years later.

One of the most prominent features of the PC800’s design is the completely enclosed engine. Not even the racetrack-replica sportbikes hide their engines as totally as the PC800 does.

The bike looked exactly the same as the last time McCarvel saw it: it was still missing a battery, the tires were flat and it didn’t have any new miles on it.

“I was like ‘what the hell,’ you know? I couldn’t believe it,” he told the Missoulian.

McCarvel hopped out of his car, took a picture of the red Aermacchi Harley-Davidson

Would Shareholders Who Purchased MotorCycle Holdings'(ASX:MTO) Stock Three Years Be Happy With The Share price Today?

It is a pleasure to report that the MotorCycle Holdings Limited (ASX:MTO) is up 146% in the last quarter. Meanwhile over the last three years the stock has dropped hard. Regrettably, the share price slid 58% in that period. So the improvement may be a real relief to some. Perhaps the company has turned over a new leaf.

To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: Over the short term the market is a voting machine, but over the long term it’s a weighing machine. One flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.

During the three years that the share price fell, MotorCycle Holdings’s earnings per share (EPS) dropped by 14% each year. The share price decline of 25% is actually steeper than the EPS slippage. So
