Yea, the other night on the local news they interviewed a guy in the motorcycle sales and service business. With the fuel crunch he bragged about his increase in sales and service business (like Virg and Jo). He claims folks are dusting off some of their old bikes that have been sitting in the garage and want them fixed up. He claims he has a 2 month back log in service appts. They showed a clip of the lined up bikes in his shop. WOW!
I've got several relatives in the oil exploration business in TX and OK... they seem to be living rather "large" lately.
