I'm sure they do. I've heard them all as well. Just like any black guy here can list you off all the Watermellon/Fried Chicken jokes he's heard.



As I said, It just gets old.

If I were in Dublin it would be fine. It would only be now and then.

However, it's the start to almost every conversation I have here. So, as I said, it just gets old.

And your mum's family being Irish makes YOU about as Irish as a bowl of Lucky Charms. So don't give me that.

I love to share a joke, and do so with many friends here. But the jokes are varied and funny.

When you hear the same one made at your expense for the 1000th time. Enough is Enough.

Surely you can see that?

You gotta admit participating in these flame wars is at least worth a dollar a month.

Oh, and I work for NASA here in the USA, and I'd LOVE to see the reaction if I went around the lab making watermellon/gangsta black jokes or money grubbing/big nosed jewish jokes. My ass would be canned before the end of the day, and rightly so.

Fair enough Staff.



Perhaps you'd be kind enough to share a good "wetback" joke around the office? How about a good ol' "nig*er" joke?



Perhaps you coud call Yossef Schvetz a "big-nosed kike" next time you see him. See how he likes it?

Especially those narrow corners while on 2 wheels Not to mention the potholes on the B-roads. It's a nice place to tour, but definately not designed to keep your bike in top form.



It's such a pleasure to ride over here in the USA. Especially all the great mountain roads.

Default Re: Probably for homologization purposes...

Sure conventional constant-damping-rate ones do, but they could have went with the Hyperpro (sp?) style that only kicks in at high handlebar speeds. It works just as well as an electronic one and is probably much cheaper to make.

I hear ya, at 6'6" 270 there isnt a difference between a sport bike and a pocket bike anymore. Can't ride either... Now we need lighter sport tourers.

Yeah, where else can you run your mouth without getting one handed to you?

I spend more than $12 bucks a day on Latte`s.
