I like the idea of the airbag.



Though I dislike safety Nazis about as much as feminazis.

1150 RT, used $11-12k. It will keep you dry and handle pretty well.

I did see a video of a guy on a yellow goldwing at Deals Gap; The guy was haulin' and the guy behind him shooting the video was scraping pegs around every corner. That was the sound track.

I think you mean "re-read DC_Dave's post." I thought my little joke was completely obvious.

I have no idea what on earth makes you think I would ever bother with any of your propaganda links.



I don't have the slave mentality. Peddle your middleclass oppression elsewhere.

And I heard that some of the early corpse tests resulted in their necks being broken. I suppose that the airbag inflating device was made a bit less powerful as a result.



The Whizzer web site has some nice bikes. Telescopic forks and even lights and brakes. They look too modern for me, but they probably have to be to get them licensed & street legal. Maybe disc brakes from mountain bikes would really make them stop.

Yeah, that's what my biddies did with the motorized bicycles they built. I still have the coaster brake on the back, 'cause it looks so cool. Yes, everything needs a license, now even my bicycles. A 1 time deal $17.00 for as long as you own it.



The new whizzers are made in China and have end play on the crank set at about 1/2 an inch. You can see the flywheel shuddering in and out of the cases at idle. Scary. A neighbor down the streey has one.



Clever those Chicom devils.

how about an ejector seat that blasts you clear of the accident and allows you to parachute back down slowly to safety?
