With few exceptions, riding season has well arrived (Yea!). Out here on the left coast, things are heating up which means it's about time to park the dirt bikes for the hot summer (red sticker) months and enjoy the fruits of CalTrans' labor. The road beckons, enjoy!

First off, congrats to Ted Smith for claiming the April dough with a response time you could measure in milliseconds (almost). Now we'll rumage around the proverbial hat and pull out a name for May... *rumage* *rumage*... and the winner is:
David S. Mallory
If that's your name, then I've got a $300 Corbin gift certificate just for little-ole-you. Just send an email confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org and don't forget to include your snail mail address. But remember, I have to receive your response within two weeks or it goes up for grabs again.
For those of you not named above, you're automatically entered for next month's drawing so don't give up yet.
So I was talking to my dog the other day and explaining, AGAIN, how things work (sometimes I think he just doesn't listen). "You see Bo, it's not enough just to have opposable thumbs. There has to be some higher brain function than what you have, to date, exhibited if you ever expect to climb up the food chain."
This was met with a vacant expression. Obviously I wasn't getting through.
"Even if you had the right digits and the ability to wield tools, I'm not sure you'd have the inventiveness to do anything with it. You likely wouldn't amount to anything more than a hammer-wielding-furry-dullard that licks himself inappropriately. An impressive skill, but not one that will attain a Nobel prize."
I know this may sound cruel to you, but I've lived with this beast for awhile and I can assure you this comes as no surprise to him. Let's see... where did the point go... Oh yeah, "Inventiveness".
Check out this new creation called the Raven. A single passenger vehicle ala the Sparrow. Unlike the Sparrow, this little beauty is powered by a tradional internal combustion engine to take advantage of existing technology. It is extremely maneuverable with it's three wheeled steering and energy efficient with expectations of 65 miles per gallon. Better still, with it's diminutive footprint, you can park four vehicles in the place of a single SUV.
Once again, Corbin is setting out to provide a solution to our energy woes and a cleaner future. Now THAT'S Inventive!
