Yeah, one has to wonder why in the hell they put that little straw hole of an intake on the newer bikes. Anyone can see this will strangle top end power.



How about some type of ram air instead.

Eric *wants* that POS engine. He has said so many times. personally I chalk it up to a spot of idiocy. Every "brilliant" person has a subject on which they are utterly dumb.



All Eric needs is the Aprilia/Rotax Mille engine and we'll be set.

I agree with that and would buy it for just such duty. However, when I start reading all the posts about the issues that owners have with the little thumper, I seriously think I would be better off with a ruckus.

How much luck has anyone had with turbo charging a Buell motor? I am sure it would make great power but reliable?

Default Re: Atlanta via nowhere.

Screw that - who's that AirHawk Fella?



I bet he's real screwed-up in the Head.



Hell, it's so well-timed that he shows up as a Foil for KP, I be he's just another account KP is using (maybe one his Schizophrenic-mind doesn't even know about........)



Waddyer think about THAT?

Default Re: Atlanta via nowhere.

There's an AM talk radio guy by the name of Phil Hendrie. I believe he is in the L.A. market now.



He started out in South Florida.



The entire shtick of his show would be that he would create callers/guests to talk about controversial or ridiculous topics.



Thing is, he would be the one doing the voice of the guest/caller as well as being the host. He was quite good at, what is essentially, talking to himself and making it seem like a legitimate conversation between two people.



Of course, no matter how long he was on the air, he would always get callers that would get fished in and would call irrate and scream about the shows topic of the day.



There was a several recurring characters that Hendrie would reuse. The characters of R.C. Collins and Sundown would probably be the closest thing to MO's Ksquid/KPaul.



And since MO is located close to the same area as where the show was aired, Squid's complete fabrication wouldn't be totally shocking. And if it was one of the guys or girls that are or used to be affiliated with MO I would be kind of impressed at the shear dedication it takes to maintain the character.
