Re: Harley Hair-Extensions
HA!!!! My first Hd was an XLCH in 68.Scared myself sh**less and couldnt make payments so sold it and bought a decrepit 59 pan chop project. By the time I was finished building it into an ill handling,undependable pos chopper i had well less thsn 1000 bucks in it. I always figger the time spent off the road working on the bike kept me alive cause if I had spent that time riding instead of wrenching odds are Ida killed myself.

Re: Alice, to Kpaul...
sounds like my 23 year old son.....except my son has had 2 street bikes......and oh yeah,he's an experienced and proficient MX'er......and ,well, he knows how to wrench on his own bike and he's been 150 + on the track.........Geez,I guess even my punk kid ranks well ahead of KPAUL in the pantheon of mptorcycling. Matter of fact I dont know many bike riders who don't.

Re: Alice, to Kpaul...
Actuall y my unabridged defines "contrarian" as some one who always has opposing views and is inconsistent..........pretty accurate if you ask me. Many grumpy people are considered to be cotrariant. I for one am happy to oblige KPAUL and consider him MO's official Contrarian.

Next time he his idiocy irritates me, I'll just have to speak up. (Make that a note to self...)

Thanks for the clarification.

I'd say you're in the GPTB for life. Now just tear into KPyle a fw more times, and you could be up for an officers position.

Re: Untrained Riders account for overwhelming majority of fatalities.
I consider myself fortunate to live in a state that makes it so convenient to learn motorcycle riding. There are two unique things about Pennsylvania's motorcycle safety program.

There is no fee charged to take the BRC or ERC. The program is funded by a nominal surcharge of $5 each time a permit is issued or an endorsement is renewed.

Upon passing the BRC test, the Rider Coach is authorized by the state to grant the M endorsement on the spot. He/she signs and stamps your permit card, which will serve as temporary proof of the endorsement until the state mails you a license update card. There's no need to take the completion card to the DMV and do more paperwork.

The program's website states that 199,000 people have taken courses since its inception in 1985. I completed the BRC in August 2003 and have used the emergency swerving and braking techniques countless times.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 02:05 PM.
