Nice PO Box number you've got there.

It communicates but leaves an air of mystery. 30-06? Is that for a BDL? A Garand? A BAR? An M1919? An M1917? An A3-03? All of the above?

I thought it was for your number of wives and six of them are crazy. 30 odd 6.

Heh heh. Good guess. But not quite. 06 is the number of expert markswomen in the bunch. They get the BDLs

You won't even be able to shoot your way out. All your guns will be taken away by 2009.

I can't decide which is funnier: the dentists riding the choppers down Main Street with the tats, chaps, and leather vests, or the dentists on GS Bimmers riding around the parking lot of the track at Daytona, standing on the pegs and wearing neon green jackets.

..only way to find a victor is make em send a champion clown from each faction, then indian wrestle(on backs, side by side at hip, facing opposite, legs up on count of 3) to find prize winning poseur.
This works for when opposing "stunter" blobs meet on Sat nights, here in the gentle city..

Hummer?
 
"In case you're not familiar with the GS and GS Adventure, think of them as the Humvee of the motorcycle world."

This is close, but not quite right. I'd say more like a Land Rover: extremely capable off road, but used almost exclusively by suburbanites for nothing more than commuting or coffee runs.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I saw a Rover Defender with a "Hummer Recovery Vehicle" cover on it's spare the other day. There's a video at Stromtrooper.com of a VStrom towing a GS out of the woods. The Strom has a little hand written "GS Recovery Vehicle" sign platered on the windshield.

Amusing, but sadly there's not much money to be made in the off-road towing of Hummers.

BTW. Have you recovered from your May Day celebrations? Did you get to kill many Whiteys? Are your teeth ground to the gums from thinking about **** Cheney and Halliburton?
