    I guess all good things must come to an end. When I worked for S&S back in the day, we set up at Carl’s during bike week. Awesome hospitality on the part of the Morrow’s. I met quite a few influential industry people there. Heck, even had the pleasure of meeting the Late, Great Evel Knievel there! Carl has many “connections”

    Well, it’s, “Ant-Man and The Wasp”, so I doubt anyone functioning above an 8 year-old’s level really cares what brand of bike is used. Sounds like they should be using specially-lowered Rupp mini-bikes anyway. 😉
