On this episode of On Two Wheels, we visit Yoshi Kosaka, owner of Garage Company, where his hobby of collecting motorcycles at a small shop in Venice Beach, turned into a career after leaving his job of being a dental technician.

I have no doubt he does, but it is all backfiring on the bastard

just as the gun grab he tried to pull off after the school shooting. Gun sales went thought the roof, and NRA membership sky rocketed.
