What is Gentleman's Express, and why should you care?

First of all, a little background on the expression "gentleman's express"...

Calling a motor vehicle a gentleman's express implies a few things: it is fast, it is stylish, and it has a certain amount of snob appeal due to rarity and/or cost. A Jaguar XK Coupe would fit the definition of a gentleman's express. Likewise, a BMW K1 motorcycle might fit the definition.

This site is meant for people who enjoy riding and working on motorcycles and have been doing so for a while. It is meant to be a place for people who enjoy classic or soon-to-be classic bikes of the fast and stylish persuasion. It is meant to be free of brand-loyal prejudice. It is meant to take a tongue-in-cheek approach -- a tone that I will try to set and maintain in all parts of the site, and one that hopefully will be supported by visitors. It is meant to act as a portal for you to let others know about your motorcycle-related interests and/or business in a cordial way free of flashing billboards and pop-up ads. It is meant to be a place where you can purport, pontificate, and generally put forward your point of view about virtually anything motorcycle-related.

Your host, Rick O'Brien
