They could just show up with Janet Reno and that would scare the hell out of me.

I'm fairly certain that you would need a garlic clove necklace, and a crucifix to deal with that eventuality. VWW

Default Re: Hey Buz! I was wonderin...

I saw a real tiny blurb in Motorcyclist, with a bad picture. If you want to get a look at it, check out

http://www.motorbox.com/cntDefault.prn.aspx?idcontent=5999It's

It ain't much to look at and I guess it's gonna cost around 23,000 Euros (how ever much that is, in real money) but with that power to weight ratio, I'd sure like to take one for a ride.

Default Re: Pot, LSD, Machine Gun, and Bikes.

Hmmm... HD V-Rod with M60 mounted on back.



Would that be VSRC-UC for Urban Combat?



Maybe a XB12R, all blacked out, would be better... Must have the race kit...

Default Reinforcements

It would be alright. Just take 2 doses of LSD (substitute one large blunt if preferred), get a good night's rest, and call in the Marines in the Morning.

Default Re: Public policy for Dummies and the GPTB. A positive alternative for the AMA

"If the AMA would actively support helmet laws and safety measures. It would gain public support and credibility. "



Here's some more things the AMA could support to gain public support and credibility:



Horsepower limits.

Ban on aftermarket exhausts.

Banning motorcycles from parks.



Those things would gain a sh*tload of public support.



Of course, since kpaul supports helmet laws but (probably) doesn't support these other things, then helmet laws are pure genius, while the other things are utterly stupid and supported only by bible-thumping morons who vote Republican.

kpud is of the same class of "do as I say, not as I do" hypocritical preening narcissistic leftists as those folks with the save-the-environment bumper stickers on their SUV's.



You have to understand, it's not what you do or how you live that counts. It's what you SAY. Bonus points for slagging others who behave no differently than you but say all the wrong things.



Most people grow out of it after they get out of college. The rest become tiresome, ranting lefties.



BTW, "thermonuclear meta-irony" is awesome.

Let's just say all of his facts are true about death tolls and stuff. He has missed the point, The RIGHT to choice!! If a person chooses to drive a motorcycle that his business. With the raising cost of insurance mototcyclists are truly paying the bills.
