Default Totally Off Topic

Hey, Captain, are you hijacking this thread?



Does that make you a pirate?



As to the Street Rod, I can only say, "it's about time." A VRod that has rational ergos and handling? That is a bike that would make my list. I saw pictures of a bike like this a couple of years ago; someone had put real forks and suspension on a VRod. It looked like one hell of a lot of fun.



But the "two-up" seat still looks like Harley is being ironic.

Default Another movie worth seeing

In this same vein (movies worth seeing), there's a site called www.linesthemovie.com.



It's a collection of videos of sport bike rides in Oregon. They've the intention to make a full length movie and I hope that they do.

I couldn't find a picture of it-just the press release.



Is there a picture on the site? It's listed as a 2006 model.

That's pretty cool. I suppose it should get posted as a news article.



Longride check it out!

Can't find a picture of it. They say they are making one on the H-D site, but if you find a pic I will put it up.

Clicking on the add baner brought up more info.

30* rake mid mount pegs, etc.

Its all flash so I don't know if you can grab any images.

HD might actually have a bike I'd be interested in. I'll wait to see it in person. Read a little more about it. I hated the Vrod I rode, louse ergos mainly.

During Biker Boyz, I kept hoping terrorists would show up and kill everyone on the screen. After that, I decided I'd need a straigh-jacket to watch Torque.

I miss my writing too. I just took over as Associate Publisher for RoadRUNNER, but their august tone won't permit rants on hot fudge flavored condoms or drunken menage a trois with Wynona Dider and Angelina Jolie.



While you can find my byline in this month's Robb Report Motorcycling, Cruising Rider, and Barnett's Motorcycle Showcase, you'll have to wait for my upcoming projects for Super Street Bike to see any of the EBass gonzo stylings you're used to.



Starvation wages aside, there's something to be said for the literary freedom of MO's anything goes amateur hour. It kinda sucks going pro!

I've always said that I'd rather be a thread pirate than various other types of pirates that will go unnamed.
