Anyone have any positive things coming down the pike for ups in 2008? It would be nice to hear something good that happens once in a while besides all the lawsuits and things of this nature.

Yes! I'm vacationing near Las Vegas in June. I'm hoping to run into Moreluck in some casino. I hear she is a most competent gambler!

With the contract ratified, UPS can focus on improving those areas of the operation that need attention and, with the ever-increasing prices of gasoline, diesel and jet fuels, push toward the conversion of our fleet to the use of alternative fuels.

My brothers theory is that wives (in general) are gonna be pissed about something, may as well be about you riding motorcycles everyday with your buddies.

Your brother appears to be a very wise man:peaceful: Although I'm sure I won't be riding every day it does open up more oppertunities- after all there's always fishing and hunting that has to be done

I really have a hard time getting a ride in by myself as she loves it as much as I do. Even though she is a great passenger it is still more relaxing going solo. There is nothing worse than trying to counter balance some nob who is afraid to lean into the curves. She is thinking of taking lessons this spring and getting her own bike and I'm all for it.:peaceful:
