Grouse and pyss and moan and carry-on impotently until you hate this forum, the world, your family, yourself, and the entire Universe in specific. Then get booted.

Isn't that how The GMP got his start, before he "turned Pro"?

All's I know is, Ike declared "Mission accomplished!" in 1945, and we still have troops there today. It's a quagmire.

One of these days I'm going to learn how to place a post where I want it, instead of glomming it onto somebody else's.

Or the forum architecture will be changed to non-suck.

Probably not the latter.

Seeing that "motorcycle" makes the stories of the Nazis handing out vast quantities of methamphetamines infinitely more plausable. Somebody had to have been on the tail end of a three week speed binge when that sucker was drawn up.

BTW, I really enjoyed this article. Motorcycle history has long been an interest of mine. I hope Motorcycle.com follows this article with more like it.

Great article! +1 on KM's "More like it" comment.

Default A 9mm Mauser?

More like 7.92x59 (AKA the 8mm). And CZ made the best ones BTW, the VZ24.

Sheesh, do I have to notice all the mistakes all the time? Maybe it's just my nit-pickey personality, since I've run out of Lorazepam.

Had I known about the Chinese copy of the Russian copy, I would have bought one, instead of that dang Buell. Maybe that a hole in the SUV would have got tipped over when he hit me, if I was riding that big chunk of commie steel. Then I could of got up and beat the krap out of him.

JAVOL!

Default How's about a test on the...

...Chang Yang, now that the bikes are avialable in Caliphornia?

I know that it only has 22 hoursepower, with the flathead copy, but a lot of us vintage bike types would go ape over MO actually testing one.

How about I contact them, and set it up for you Admintrators of Mororized Mayhem?
