Good one! That made me laugh out loud in my office at 6am. I'm normally a little groggy at that time...

I wouldn't assume that the expierience itself was much fun for you. My service was all peacetime, I imagine the fun level would have been considerably lower, had I needed to actually use that .50 for suppression.

Default Re: Camaro vs Suburu

Camaros ARE fun in corners, though not particularly fast (unless the pavement is smooth) If you like to steer with the throttle, I can think of no better way to spend your money, than on an F-body Camaro and boatloads of tires.

Who is this 'Highwayman'? He has an apparently identity crisis as highwayman in the traditional sense were rogues who committed robbery and mahem upon travelers of the countryside. Could this person really be a 'Highwaywoman' or 'Highwayperson' ? Intriguing.

Good point about rear wheel drive. All the same, if I'm buying a toy, it'd more likely have 2 wheels. With cars, I'm a cheap bastard.

When it comes to 'Merican beer, original Coors [not Coors light] is the only real option, 100% natural and all that, not some industrial ***** from Milwaukee. they make that other stuff for the nascar rubes.

<blockquote>Well guess what I don't see FORD,CHEVY,or CHYSLER winning any rally races. And not to mention the Subaru WRX has more horsepower than a 4.6 liter mustang...And if you are lucky enough to have a v-8 in your camaro your only down 17hp on the WRX.</blockquote>



1. ford has contested (and won) rallies with it's wrc focus (to say nothing of the older escort and rs200 platforms).



2. the big reason these mustang and camaro v8s don't win in world rally competition because they aren't allowed to compete: current regulations limit group a and wrc rally cars to 6 or fewer cylinders. (see rule 5.1.8.3 of article 255 - appendix j of the fia techincal regs.)



3. the 2003 mustang gt 4.6l sohc v8 produces 260 hp and 302 ft-lbs or torque. the 2002 camaro z-28 5.7l ohv v8 produces 310 hp and 340 ft-lbs of torque. the mustang v8 exceeds the stock us-spec wrx output (227 hp / 217 ft-lbs in '02/'03) by 33 hp and 85 ft-lbs. the camaro v8 exceeds the rex's output by a mere 83 hp and 123(!) ft-lbs.

Default Comparo I want to see...

Hmm: Johnny, MiniMe, KPaul, and Highwayman trading off Mille R, RC51, ZR7, and Road King in the following comparo: commute to Willow, Track testing!, tour to Sturgis, stay for Bike Week.



My fictional results?



KPaul bails, claims 50 mi commute to track is "too far" and besides, weather channel calls for 10% chance of rain and temps in the mid-60's, "hardly riding weather." Highwayman fails tech inspection because of oil leakage, complaining to the inspector that "they all do that." Stiff suspension on the RC51 beats the sh[t out of Burns, so there's nothing left to him and he wastes away on the bike west of CO, last heard saying, "This never would have happened in the Jagrolet... if it ran..." MiniMe is hung upside down by his ankles, right next to the Mille on the Jap Junk tree in a case of mistaken identity and are both beaten into submission like pinatas, mimime screaming like a girl, "Its Italian, ITALIAN..."



*sigh*



A man can dream, though, can't he?

I'm keep pointing it out--until race results and product review commets start outnumbering those respones to JB diatribes, you can be sure that you will continue to see more entertainment than infomercials...

Default Re: LMAO

Unlike most posters I try not to post unless I have something to add,but I have some expertise in the area of Harley riders' drinking habits.As an old fart who started riding in the late 60's I can only speak for the tru...er I mean old timers who rode before Harleys were trendy and socially acceptable and HD riders tended to be at least slightly disreputable.The drinks of choice for HD riders(at least in the Southeast/mid atlantic area) were Budweiser and Jack Daniels.When we (I mean they)were having cash flow problems we drank cheap beer(Old Bo,rolling rock,etc) ,cheap bourbon(Old Crow,Kessler,etc) and cheap wine(Bali Hai was a particular favorite but some of my sophisticated brethren preferred Chianti and Rose Matoose as we called it).I NEVER recall any Harley riders(or my Brit Bike riding buds for that matter) drinking imported beer,scotch,milky drinks or colored drinks with fruit and umbrellas in it.Of course Im not sure this applies to all the newbies and rubs who have recently joined the fraternity(the Highwayman?????)but it is a true picture of "how it was".Hope this helps clear up misconceptions
